CONGRATULATIONS to National Hunt champion lady amateur rider Jody Townend on winning the
@horseware National Ladies League show jumping at Cork/Kerry Show last Sunday. Is there no end to the woman’s talents?

On her way home to Cork having ridden out at Closutton for Willie Mullins, her day job apart from her race riding, Jody explained: “I was mainly into show jumping when I was younger. I was lucky because my dad Tim bought me a three-year-old half-bred when I was 12 and I produced him myself when I was 12. His showing name is One Lucky Strike but he’s Jimmy to me.
