OVER the past number of years, I have competed mainly on the national Grand Prix circuit and in the Irish Sport Horse Studbook series. Things began to step up a gear in 2013 with a gold medal win with Arraghbeg Clover in the WBFSH world breeding championships and winning all the Horse Sport Ireland young horse classes at Dublin Horse Show was a great feeling last year.

But 2015 and MHS Going Global have brought me and the team at Ballypatrick Stables to a whole different level.
