That’s the prize Jade McClafferty from St Johnston won at the Dublin Horse Show.The 14 year old spent a day with top Irish show jumper Cian O’Connor at his yard near Ashbourne. As it turned out it was a special day for both of them.Not only did Jade get a lesson from Cian, she also got to watch him win the Grand Prix at Killossery Show on the same day.“It was unbelievable as I thought I was going to spend an hour with him and as it turned out we were with him all day, he could not have been nicer,” said Jade.“It was great to see him in action and then to get a lesson with him in his indoor arena was really special. It’s a day I won’t forget.” Cian was just back from the US where he was competing in Florida and the next day he was off to Canada to teach students.He is hoping to qualify for the Olympics in Rio next year and is confident he can go one better than the London games in 2012 where he finished with a bronze medal.The prize lesson was sponsored by Gain Horse Feeds, one of Cian’s many sponsors.JADE IS STILL ‘CIAN’ ON SHOWJUMPING AFTER BRUSH WITH OLYMPIC MEDALLIST was last modified: November 27th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cian O’ConnordonegalhorseJade McCalffertySt Johnstonlast_img read more
