Abu Dhabi CSIO5*

Jess Crofts

The end of DLS' time in Dubai has now come to a close but it is safe to say that we have finished on a high. 

Following selection for the Nations Cup at the Abu Dhabi CSIO5* David Simpson took to the Arena with Keoki and the pair put on a flawless performance. A double clear from the these two meant that Ireland (David, Shane Breen, Cameron Hanley & Paul Kennedy) secured second place at this fantastic show.

The foot perfect rounds from David meant that he could claim his share of the 50,000 bonus offered up by Longines to any riders to end the series with no faults. As one of only two riders' to achieve the feat everyone at DLS was over the moon to see David collect his prize alongside Samantha McIntosh.

Full details of the day can be read here

After a productive Le Touquet David sent Keoki, Starfighter & Chessy 17 to Lisbon 3* Nations Cup show. Starfighter, owned by Alison Jackson, jumped some lovely rounds coming 9th in only his second  1.50m LR.

On Nations Cup day it was Keoki who was set to take part! Keoki, owned by Julia Cruden, took both rounds in his stride to produce a lovely clear round in the first round and just had an unlucky fence and a time fault in the second. These rounds helped the team to finish in 4th place!  

David now has high hopes for this 8yr old and looks forward to the up and coming shows!

Helen Cruden

To start the new year DLS has headed down to Olivia Nova Met for the next 6weeks. With slight disruption to the jumping, as a result of snow and rain, the horses have got off to a good start with them jumping many double clears in both the Young horse classes and the first day for the older horses. Today's jumping has been cancelled but hopefully the sun comes out tomorrow and jumping will resume as normal!
