Denis Lynch’s equestrian career started with racehorses. He grew up in Tipperary, Ireland, where his grandfather taught him to ride as a young boy. Originally, he wanted to be a steeplechase jockey but said that as he grew up he became 'too tall and too heavy' to become a jockey. Instead he concentrated on show jumping and the transition proved to be a great success. Denis has had many top placings on the LGCT circuit including third place in the 2018 LCGT Monaco Grand Prix with RMF Bella Baloubet.
