Earlier this week Denis Lynch announced that he was quitting the Irish showjumping team, due to irreconcilable differences with Ireland manager Robert Splaine. Now Lynch says to the Dutch magazine De Paardenkrant that his decision is not irreversible, and that he is open to sit down and discuss the differences with the leaders of the Irish team when the indoor season is over. Lynch explains that he has been disagreeing with the team leaders over a longer period of time, and that it is nothing personal in it – just a matter of different professional views.
The Irish rider also says that he wrote a letter to the Irish team management in November 2010. As there was no reply Lynch insisted on getting an answer, but only got a line in return where it was stated that the Irish team management disagreed with Lynch’s views. According to Lynch this serves as a background to why he hasn’t sat down with the team leaders to discuss the case earlier.
