Tipperary student wins prestigious South View Grand Prix
Rockwell College’s Max Wachman was victorious in the South View Grand Prix held in Cheshire recently. The first year student and his partner Diamond jumped impeccably, producing an excellent ride in the preliminaries to make the final 22 jump off against an initial 106 competitors in the 1.15m performance event.

Max has been riding Diamond for only two years, but their smooth performance around the technically difficult course belied this fact. This is a remarkable achievement considering that he was one of the youngest riders in the class, having the determination and stamina to succeed in such a big field.

Max and Diamond have only just stepped up to this level, with the pair jumping their first 1.20m track in Ireland just two weeks before this event.
