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. He is currently ranked 23rd on the Longines Rankings, and leads the Western European League World Cup standings as of February 2022.
