From Sunny Ireland to Rainy Plantation..

We had a fantastic trip to Ireland! Looked at over 40 horses! Claire Ryan took us to The famous Ringwood Stud which was a highlight for both Jill and myself as there have been many world class horses to come from there. 
We saw 15 young horses ranging in age 3 years old to 6 years old. We also went to Fernhill and saw Carol Gee and looked at 18 more horses from 4 year olds through to the advanced level eventers. This was the best trip that I have had looking at horses with such great  quality!
I flew back back Friday and competed 6 horses at Plantation in the pouring rain all day Saturday, which then resulted in a cancelled event on Sunday because the ground was so wet.
That also marked my last event on Amore' and Amaretto, as they have found new homes.  Congratulations to their new owners Karri and Steve Guy on the purchases on these 2 top class horses!
Looking forward to Fair Hill this weekend! Hope to see you there.
