DLS Showjumping, based in West Sussex, is home to husband and wife team David Simpson and Louise Simpson (Nee Pavitt). David and Louise are International Showjumpers competing at the top shows all around the world.
DLS pride themselves in tailoring all services personally to their clients and their horses, whether you are an owner, a livery client or training with them. They have excellent contacts in both Ireland and England, and as such are able to source the perfect horses for you or find the best clients for your horse should you wish to sell.
David has represented Ireland in Pony, Junior, Young Rider & Senior show jumping teams. He trained with Shane Breen for seven years, not only competing on his own horse, but also producing young horses for Breen Equestrian and assisting with sales, breeding & training.
More recently David has consistently achieved good results at International & National shows. 2019 was a phenomenal year for David, winning the Queen Elizbeth II Cup for the 2nd time, representing Team Ireland in 5* Nations Cup and World Cup Competitions, and claiming top spot at Horse of the Year Show in the Leading Showjumper of the Year. He’s had continued success in the limited 2020 season, coming 2nd in the 4* Grand Prix at Vilamoura and being selected for Irish teams throughout the year.
Louise saw huge success winning numerous individual and team medals on Ponies and Juniors. Having trained with some of the best showjumpers in the world like Peter Charles and William Funnell, Louise’s senior career took off while at Brendon Stud. Here she produced Don VHP Z who is now considered one of the best 5* horses on the circuit. While at Brendon Stud Louise gained numerous titles including Windsor Grand Prix in 2012 and 4th in the King George V Cup at the CSIO 5* Hickstead.
In addition to this she has had numerous other wins at top shows such as Addington and Horse of the Year show, Hickstead, Crans Montanta and Paris Masters.
