Valkenswaard CSI2*- Another fantastic 3 days of jumping

We had another superb weekend at Tops International Arena - where the team there put on a brilliant week of sport. All of our horses jumped some fantastic rounds and picked up some top placings amongst a strong field.



Another week of competition complete, despite the weather resulting in the horses having to pretend to be ducks, Waregem was a huge success with all the horses I ride for IN Showjumpers.



Peelbergen CSI2*

The horses continued to look fantastic at the second International CSI2* Show of the summer, this time at the amazing Dutch facility, Peelbergen

A successful return to competition!



Over the last four months, we have focused on a tailored training and management programme for each of the horses, and as a result they have all restarted in competition stronger, more relaxed and mentally happier than before.

Stepping up with success

We;ve had another two weeks of beautiful weather, amazing facilities and even more success for our team. The horses are thriving on the blue skies and sunshine and fantastic show facilities and we are so pleased with their development over the course of the tour.

Sunshine and clear rounds!

It’s been a really good start to the tour for our special team of horses. All of them have jumped clear rounds, we’ve picked up placings and even a win! They’ve all enjoyed jumping in the big grass rings here at Sunshine Tour, and many have stepped up a level successfully too.

2020 here we are!



This is the year that the two special 8 year old stallions that I am privileged to have produced for the past 18 months step up to the big stage!    

Autumn MET II Tour Update


I travelled to this tour with my priority being to develop and bring on the younger horses that we have given more time to get stronger at home before doing too much with them in the competition ring.  



Dinard – The most beautiful show in the world!

For myself and the entire team at IN Showjumpers this remains top of our list as the most beautiful show in the competition calendar, with fantastic sport at the very top level and an electric atmosphere created by the ever enthusiastic French crowds.

Cian O’Connor buys the amazing Emerald x Toulon 7 year old – Mijnheer Van’t Lentamel

This super horse with top breeding has impressed many people all year with his consistent performance. He is a modern day sports horse for the very top of the sport. Beautifully produced
from a 5 year old by Anna Wilks for the IN Showjumper’s team he has delivered clear round after clear round at the Zangersheide Spring Tour, before he stepped onto the grass at Eindhoven where his great form continued.

Knokke week 1 complete!

The horses continue their flying form, with the three seven years old and my old man Undicci, all picking up placings during the week!



Such an amazing week competing at Eindhoven csi3*, the most beautiful show!




I have had a fantastic first week of the Z tour here at zangershiede.

MET II finishes with the Toulon’s on Fire!!!

The team, four and two legged including “Alan the Goat” are all safely back home after an amazing start to 2019 at MET Tour I and II, Oliva Nova. Thank you to Bettina and all her team for making our lives so easy and creating such a great environment for the horses to train and compete.

MET 1 – 2019 Complete!

A week to reflect on the performance of each of the horses I competed during the first two weeks of competing in 2019! Time to review the videos with the rest of the team and discuss the areas of training that we need to focus on for each horse. Also time for the support team to visit:

Back in the Sunshine at Oliva Nova with @itsalanthegoat!

Alan made his first journey to Spain, to be part of the “competition crew". He is making the most of his vacation, eating as much hay as possible, stopping for snacks and naps in between his security guard duties!

Thank you IN SHOWJUMPERS - Looking forward to 2019 and beyond

I returned in one piece from another amazing visit to New Zealand, spending the first few days focusing on my hobby, bungee jumping! Now back to the four legged jumping machines!

MET Tour 2018 over and out!!!

No better way to finish than another exceptional performance by the seven year old L Primero DI Gala, Toulon x Calato. Finishing 4 th in the 1.40m on Saturday, having only one pole over the entire show!

Week II MET Tour – L Primero DI Gala 3rd in the Bronze Grand Prix

Another fantastic week of jumping at MET Oliva.

Six and seven year olds by Toulon on Fire during the first week in Oliva Nova

All the horses enjoyed their first week back in Spain but none more so than L Primero DI Gala, the talented 7 year old (Toulon x Calato) who just loves to compete, watch him flying to 2 nd place….

A 5th place to La Force De Tamerville in Lier

After a busy few months at home with the exciting IN Showjumpers young horses it was great to be back out at an international show with two of the special seven year olds owned by IN Showjumpers! After a few months break the horses were also happy to be back out jumping. 

Loeki shines in Dinard

It was amazing to be back in Dinard again, it has to be the most beautiful show in the calendar and the grass arena is not only stunning but also testing and educational for horse and rider.  We made the trip with 3 horses, Knockout Van’t Paradijs, 8 year old, Loeki van het Lindenhof z 7 year old and a French client, Nicolas Michel.

Valkenswaard round up May 2018

I had 5 horses competing during the two weeks of Valkenswaard, which is always a fantastic show for educating myself and the horses!

Last week in Spain with my fabulous young horses

It is time to reflect on our weeks in Spain. The horses I have been riding for IN Showjumpers have all without exception developed and benefited from our two months at Oliva Nova and the Sunshine Tour … or the “Rain Tour” as I think the 2018 Sunshine Tour will forever be known! However, the rain didn’t manage to dampen our spirit, thanks to my 4 legged friends!

A fantastic second week at the Sunshine Tour

Despite the weather, it has been a fantastic second week at the Sunshinetour in Spain.

The sun was shining during the first week at Vejer de la Frontera

The sun was shining during the first competiton week at Vejer de la Frontera in Spain, although it seems like we may need more than our fingers and toes crossed that rain doesn't stop the competiton over the next days. 

Horses for the Sunshine Tour 2018

After a short time back home working the 6 horses that are left at the IN Showjumpers stables, (who will start their season in April at Sentower), Anna is now back in Spain to attend the Sunshine Tour, one of Europe’s most important winter equestrian events located just a few kilometers away from the Cádiz district of Vejer de la Frontera.

Final report from Oliva Nova


During the second week at Oliva Nova, L’Artiste (VIEW VIDEO) once again proved to be the star of the show in the young horse classes, and is definitely one to keep an eye on. 


Another top placing for Anna and Cooper in Spain

Cooper (Viento Uno W x Voltaire) continuing his great form from last week.
