Dick O Malley finishes 6th Ballindenisk CCI4*L.

We enjoyed a great week at Ballindenisk near Cork with Dick o Malley and Renaissance Man.

Dick O Malley gave me an exciting feeling in all three phases, he felt more established in the 4* test and there is still more to come. He galloped and jumped beautifully around the XC track to come home inside the time, and jumped a class SJ round on the final day… just touching the last fence! He achieved his qualification for 5*, by finishing 6th in the long format 4*.

Renaissance Man was competing in the CCI4*s, he is still quite green in the dressage at this level and with a couple of mistakes he was just outside the top 10 after the first phase. After a good SJ round, just touching one fence he stormed around the XC making it feel very comfortable. He finished in 9th place.
