Blood, Sweat and Speirs

The 2014 eventing season didn't quite start off as I had hoped it would…. I had taken 6 horses cross country schooling up to Brendan and Sally Coscadden's ‘Grange Farm’ with the intentions of doing some final tuning up so to start the season with a bang. Well it certainly came in with a bang...

The World Equestrian Games in Normandy covered a vast range of emotions for all riders involved and it sure was one hell of a week!

The Irish Eventing Team achieved its objective at the World Equestrian Games by attaining one of the six coveted qualification slots for the Rio Olympics in 2016. On reflection I’m very proud to be a part of that team, but at the time there was a very odd mixture of emotions in Normandy.

What a super week at the 2014 Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show! This year I competed with just the one horse, an Irish gelding called Shantonagh, who was bred and is currently owned by Dermot Forde. He is a 7 year old gelding by the thoroughbred Power Blade out of the famous mare Diamond…

Who knew that so much could happen in just one week?! Incredible highs and some very testing lows. The main event was of course the addition of young Toby to Team Watson. He was born 10 hours after his older brother’s (Archie) first birthday, so we narrowly avoided the tag of ‘Irish twins’.
