Despite contemplating a career as a jockey as a teenager, he took a big step and went to Holland to train with Olympic medalist, Albert Voorn.

After spending time here, he then decided to move to England where he became stable jockey to Michael Whittaker, International showjumper and Olympic medalist.

He quickly progressed on the showjumping circuit to top level competition, going on to represent Ireland at Grand Prix and Nations Cup level. His partnership with stallion, Luidam, contributed to Nations Cup wins for Ireland in both St. Gallen and Aachen.
