IN what was a very competitive jump-off, Clem McMahon took victory in the TRM/Showjumpers Club Spring Tour last Sunday at Cavan Equestrian. Riding Hilton Pacato, McMahon who was third last to go in the 11-way jump-off, took the lead from pathfinder Joanne Blair and Mon Ami.

Speaking after the win, McMahon, who produced the horse, said: “We have had him from the very start. I bought him as a yearling from my friend Brian Cleary in Co Clare. He was very successful as an eight, nine and 10-year-old horse. With Covid breaking out, we gave him the year off. We had planned to take him and five other horses away, but unfortunately those plans had to be scrapped.
