Diamond Ructions CIC4S at Bramham

Louisa Lockwood and Diamond Ructions by Carrick Diamond Lad competing at Bramham.

Repost from @Louisa Lockwood Eventing on Facebook

“Diamond Ructions was a complete star this weekend in the CIC4S at Bramham. He did probably his best test to date at this level with just one green change to score 31.4. He jumped his socks of SJ not touching a pole and then flew round the XC just two seconds over the time feeling so bold and confident to finish 14 out of 86 in a high class field. I Can’t believe how much this horse has come on this year. He is really beginning to fell like a top class horse in all three phases”

Repost from @Louisa Lockwood eventing on Facebook: “Diamond Ructions finish the CIC4L strongly at Ballindenisk In 9th place and is now qualified for a 5 star. Unfortunately a couple of unlucky rails cost him a podium finish but couldn’t be more pls with his over all performance.”


Diamond Holly 2nd in Osberton CCI*

Congratulations to Flora Harris and Diamond Holly who finished 2nd at Osberton in their first CCI*

Repost From @Flora Harris Eventing on Facebook: Osberton was DIAMOND HOLLY’s final event of the 2018 season and she certainly finished in style.

A really pleasing test left her in a competitive 5th place after dressage from over 130 starters. She gave me a class ride XC coming home well inside the time and loving every minute! She flew through the trot up on Sunday morning and had moved up to 4th before the show jumping. The new system of the removal of the co-efficient meant the scores were ridiculously close with one fence covering the whole top 30 horses. The pressure was certainly on but Princess did not disappoint and jumped a beautiful clear to pull all the way up to 2nd place in her first CCI*.

We couldn’t be more thrilled for this special horse who has taken time and patience to get onside but who gave it her all and promises such an exciting future. Thankyou so much to my incredible team who’s tireless hard work has given Princess security and confidence and of course my amazing trainers who have helped me so much to work out her complex personality.

She will now enjoy a very well deserved rest and look forward to a very exciting 2019 💕”




Carrick Kilderrys Diamond

What a busy and successful couple of weeks it has been for Louis Delplace and Carrick Killderrys Diamond. The 7 year old Stallion by Carrick Diamond Lad has really been in form- He was 6th in the 1.20m in Mullingar. 5th in the 1.35m Munster Grand Prix at Dualla Show and had a very unlucky 4 faults in the first of the 1.35/1.40 7&8 year olds qualifiers at the Irish Breeders Classic in Barnadown. Certainly one to watch out for in the future!! 😀🎉
