Condon shines at Hickstead



Anthony Condon jumped a fantastic  double clear round with the John Hales’s Arko stallion ‘Aristio’. This follows the pairs recent flawless performance at the Swedish Nations Cup in Falsterbo.

Bertram Allen and Molly Malone had one fence down in each round. Billy Twomey and Diaghilev jumped clear first time out and had an unfortunate rail in round 2.  Shane Breen and ‘Golden Hawk’ jumped a clear round. Ireland finished on an eight fault total to share second position  with Belgium.

Germany took the winner’s trophy after an incredible display. Their first three riders all jumped clear in both rounds, leaving their fourth line rider, Ludger Beerbaum, to have an afternoon off. The USA and Switzerland shared fourth place ahead of the home side from Britain in sixth.
