The highly consistent Irish Sport Horse stallion Codarco has been sold to Irish International Showjumper Billy Twomey. Ridden by 27 year old Thomas O’Brien until now the Darco son Codarco was bred and produced by the O’Brien family based in Galway Equestrian, Co Galway. He has remarkable results to date including winning the 4 year old final at the Dublin Horse Show in 2011, winning the Irish Sport Horse Studbook Showjumping series league as both a 5 and 6 year old which led to his qualification to represent the Irish Sport Horse Studbook at the FEI World Breeding Jumping Championship for Young Horses in Lanaken, Belgium.
In 2012 Thomas O’Brien and Codarco finished best of the Irish at Lanaken placing 5th in the 5 year old final. This year O’brien and Codarco finished 2nd in the 6 year old consolation final at the FEI World Breeding Jumping Championship for Young Horses.
Speaking about the sale Professor Pat Wall, Chairman of Horse Sport Ireland, said “‘It is great to see a top class young Irish Sport Horse ending up with one of our top international riders in Billy Twomey. Well done to Thomas O’Brien who produced the horse to this level.”
