Action in the Connolly’s Red Mills, Showjumpers Club Spring Tour intensified last weekend with John Floody taking the win in the first of a double bill at Broadmeadows on St Patrick’s day. Riding Bronson De Reve, Floody lodged his second win of the series making him a real contender in this league.

Owned by Eileen Duggan, Bronson De Reve is an 11-year-old gelding by Hermes De Reve out of Oktober. A loyal servant to Floody, the combination have clocked up a series of impressive results up to Grand Prix level. Among their good results was a sixth place finish in the international seven and eight-year-olds’ final at the Dublin Horse Show.
