Diamond Clover Derawlin ( Jack of Diamonds x Clover Hill )
Stable name: Limerick . Owner: Iain Francis . 17hh 10 yr old ISH Bay Gelding
Limerick has had a fantastic year in 2018, he was bought as a Hunter, but new owner Iain Francis saw something special, this horse is not just a hunter.
We started eventing him in May/June at BE100 level and by July he was competing in Intermediate Novice, achieving a Double Clear at Howick Novice in September after a cracking run at Gatcombe and achieving qualification for the CIC 1* at Bicton.
Limerick took everything in his stride and wowed us all by completing Bicton 1*, a very technical track with very nearly a double clear, just having 1 down sj but all the same a cracking qualifying round which has now set him up for 2* (Now CCI-s 3* in 2019).
He is a super talented horse in all 3 disciplines having super paces on the flat, a careful Show Jumper with huge scope which follows through to the XC, as a true Irish Sports Horse he has the strength, stamina, boldness, speed and attitude we hope to go all the way up the levels. A very exciting 2019 we hope is in the pipeline….
