Irish show jumping riders were in winning form on both sides of the Atlantic over the weekend. Conor Swail landed the 1.60m Grand Prix at Wellington, Florida, on Saturday with Ilan Ferder’s Viva Colombia.

The Co Down native was one of eight through to the jump-off where, going second-last with the 10-year-old mare, he stopped the clock on 37.922 knocking Mexico’s Eugenio Garza from the top spot.

The host nation’s Hardin Towell finished third in 39.072 with New York. On Friday, Co Kilkenny’s Richie Moloney won the featured 1.45m speed class with Equinimity LLC’s gelding Alsvid. Co Wexford’s Bertram Allen was crowned leading international rider at the show in Stockholm, winning a Passat Estate.

It was the third car he won over the weekend and his second of the day as he won the Grand Prix with Quainton Stud’s Quiet Easy on which he had also landed Saturday’s 1.50m speed class.
