TAKING some time away from her showing duties at Charleville show last Saturday, Henrietta Knight caught up with some showjumping action, where she met up with longtime friends, the Costello family.

Ronan Costello, who is the grandchild of the legendary Tom Costello, took third place in the Munster Grand Prix with Altivo. The late Tom Costello, is best known as the man who sold six winners of the Cheltenham Gold Cup, including three-time winner Best Mate, which was trained by Henrietta Knight. Ronan’s uncle Tom Costello, jumped for Ireland as a young rider and was an excellent amateur national hunt jockey.
