Galway Wrap Up!

Hawley Bennett Eventing had a blast at the Galway Downs International Event. Having Ginny back at the 3* level was amazing, and we had one of our best cross country runs ever! Double clear! Chunky was so impressive on dressage day, and until he unfortunately misjudged a fence he was running fast and clean like a champ! Thank you to my sponsors Charles Owen and Point Two for keeping me safe when mistakes do happen! Demello made me love him even more, running double clear in the CCI 1* cross country, and finishing with a wonderful performance in all three phases! I can’t leave out little Sienna! Who rocked it around the Training 3day cross country, going double clear! What a blast to go steeplechase again! I was happy to sit down for an awesome interview with US Eventing, check it out on

The changes made to Galway Downs were so exciting and impressive. As usual Robert and his team did a stellar job! Hosting the Buck Clinic at Kingsway was fabulous, thank you to everyone who signed up, I hope you learned some great new things from the amazing Buck! I enjoyed having the Korean Team here so much and being able to coach them for the few weeks before Galway Downs! They were stellar at the show and rocked it! Hope they had as much of a good time with HBE as we had with them!

Huge thanks to everyone who bought raffles for the Point Two Air Vest and congratulations to Beth Tempkin for winning! Don’t forget about another opportunity to win stylish Dublin Boots and to support HBE! Check out more info on under Go For The Gold.

With the 2012 season ending, I can’t thank my sponsors and everyone who has helped HBE to run smoothly at Galway and throughout this season. I have the best team ever! Can’t wait for next season! Go HBE!

 Buck and I in cross county warm up! Loved having my coach there!
