Magic Moments of 2017 | With Cian O'Connor

Tuesday, 26 December 2017
Magic Moments of 2017

Cian O'Connor looks back at the year that soon comes to an end, selecting some of his favourite shots by World of Showjumping from 2017. Here's why this picture of Rodrigo Pessoa and Gerry Mullins is on O'Connor's 'Magic Moments'-list:

"I love all the pictures I have selected, for different reasons and they are all from the European Championships where Ireland won the team gold medal and I the individual bronze with Good Luck.

The reason this shot made the list: Gerry has worked hard in the background to be there for both the riders and management in his role as High Performance Chairman, and you can see the genuine pleasure and warmth in his expression more than likely followed with the expletive, Fair F...s Rodrigo!!!"

"This is another favourite. Here are two of my closest friends – and my background-team – Michael and Ross ecstatic, following my clear round with Good Luck in the team final."

"A united team with true appreciation for each other which was the result of hard work, compromise and respect for one another."

"My superstar horse who brought me two medals in Gothenburg: The incredible Good Luck, and his ever-loving groom Alan O'Brien. Knowing Alan I can see from this photo that he loves the horse as much for who he is, not what he wins!"
