David Simpson

Hailing from Ireland, David is now based in West Sussex with his wife Louise, and together they run DLS Showjumping. He has represented Ireland at Pony, Junior, Young Rider and Senior level.

He trained with fellow RED MILLS rider Shane Breen for seven years, producing young horses for Breen Equestrian, assisting with sales, breeding and training whilst competing with his own horse. David is currently competing at national and international shows, and in 2016 won both The Queen’s Cup and the Derby Trial at Hickstead, as well as the Oliva Nova Grand Prix.

I’m so proud to work with a feed supplier like Connolly’s RED MILLS because I really believe it’s the best feed on the market. It’s very palatable and I can be sure that it also delivers every nutrient that my horses require.
