Jake Hunter in Europe

Jun. 01, 2016

 This month Jake Hunter shares with us his most recent experiences and achievements whilst travelling around the world. Jake is proudly sponsored by Oakwood and we are excited to see what the future holds for this young talent.   

It has been a busy start to the year at team Duffy Sport Horses. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to start the year of with 2 weeks training in Germany with the Australian national coach Gilbert Bockmann. Straight on return from Germany we went to Milstreet Spring Tour CSI 2* with 18 horses. Had some good placings and wins on all the horses and am very excited about the year ahead with 'Volcanicity' a 10yo gelding by Volcan. He is an exciting horse for me. Also recently my own horse 'Val De Weiser' has arrived safely in Knockmore and is ready for work. He has been ridden at home by my brother Cade and local dressage rider Grace Kay. They have done a brilliant job on him so far and am looking forward to his bright future. 

The next big thing for me is the Mullingar CSI 2* show in June and then onto Dublin CSI 5* with 'Knightfiled Ella' a 7yo mare by 'Luidam', who has qualified for the 6-7yo young rider class there. 

I would like to thank Oakwood Products for their ongoing support, and keeping all of our leather products looking in top shape and order.

I am now back off to Germany again on Tuesday to train with Alex Duffy in Düsseldorf for a week and will keep you up to date on return.
