CARRICK DIAMOND BARD’s first 4*

Well done to Alex Holman Eventing and Carrick Diamond Bard, by Carrick Diamond Lad, who was home- bred here at Greaghwillan Stud, on their brilliant result in their first 4* together. Congratulations to all involved! 👏🏼🐎

Just coming back down to earth after an incredible weekend at Bicton Arena for both mine and CARRICK DIAMOND BARD’s first 4* – we finished 40th/106 starters in the hugely competitive Olympic selection trial section, over a course widely described as a ‘4.5*’!!!

He pulled out a pretty perfect dressage test, scoring my international PB of 28 and lying just outside the top 30 behind mostly Olympic listed combinations, with our score trending in the lead at one point and well into the top 10 through the trotwork, with all 3 judges awarding me well over 70%🤩

On Saturday we just had 1 very frustrating pole down over a strong SJ course, but he jumped really well and was well inside the tight time, and such was the influence of the track that we held our dressage position after this phase even against such a strong field👌

Finally the XC in the heat of the day on Sunday…after watching all the problems that were happening at nearly every single fence on Saturday & Sunday morning, plus hearing other competitors commenting that it was one of the toughest 4* tracks they’d seen for years I just had total belief in Gerry and myself, and mostly stuck to my plan all the way round for a fantastic clear! He was very strong and excited so it made life a bit tricky, which forced me to take 1 unplanned alternative, but he felt incredible right until the final fence and never tired😍

It is a total dream come true to be competing at this elite level, let alone to have totally proved ourselves worthy of being there and showing that we will be competitive in the future! It feels like it’s been years of watching other people achieve at the higher levels and not doing it myself, but I am so proud to have made it there, especially on a 9yo horse that I’ve taken right through the grades myself from his first ever SJ round/XC school less than 3 years ago💪

A HUGE thankyou to Bicton for the most phenomenal job at running such a fantastic competition for us at short notice, to Janet for being a great owner, to Martha for keeping us organised and Gerry clean all week, and to everyone who has supported me in achieving this milestone and sent such lovely messages😁

Francis Connors on the benefits of Traditional Irish Breeding

Great video from a very knowledgable, experienced horseman and top showjumper Francis Connors on the benefits of Traditional Irish breeding, with a nice feature of his chestnut mare, Uskerty Diamond Lady by our stallion Carrick Diamond Lad.

We’re excited to continue to preserve and promote the Traditional Irish breed here at Greaghwillan Stud, especially with our promising young stallion Carrick Diamonds Diamond (video link: https://youtu.be/82lwe9UlvAg ) joining his sire on our stallion roster this year.

Carrick Diamonds Diamond joins Greaghwillan Stud stallion roster for 2021

We are delighted to announce that Carrick Diamonds Diamond will be joining our stallion roster at Greaghwillan Stud for the 2021 stud season. Born 2018, this homebred 2 year old colt is one we are already very excited about! With 72% Thoroughbred blood, his full Traditional Irish pedigree needs little introduction. He is by the legendary 5* rated Carrick Diamond Lad and is out of the thoroughbred dam, Musical Trix, by Executive Perk. Like his father, this horse is a super mover with great elevation and a temperament to die for. Available to view with full set of clean x-rays and veterinary certificate.

Carrick Diamond Lad’s first foal born in Kenya.

Lovely video of Carrick Diamond Lad’s first foal born in Kenya, a filly out of a Boerperd mare. Delighted for you Venetia Philipps. Would love to pay a visit someday, however it doesn’t look like you need any advice as it seems you’ve already made a great start at producing the best Irish Sport Horses in East Africa!

“Hi Tom- Thank you for making this possible- a Carrick Diamond Lad filly arrived on Sunday out of a Boerperd mare- really hope over the next few years we might be able to get you out here to kenya and you can give us some advice on how to breed the best Irish sport horses for East Africa!”
