It is a first Badminton for Irish rider Dominic Furnell (24) who is based in Limerick at the Ballycahane equestrian centre. Last year Dominic, one of the youngest riders this year, completed his first four-star at Pau.
Dominic was also keen on point to pointing. After leaving school he worked for Lucy Wiegersma during which time (2012) he rode his first winner point to pointing on his own horse Clew bay Cove (a long shot 200-1).
Ballycahane Flower Power owned by Gerald Furnell, is a 16-year-old Irish Sport Horse mare. Bred by William White she is by Diamond Clover (also the sire of former four star horse Tankers Town) out of a mare by the Irish Thoroughbred Euphemism. She was acquired as a five-year-old and has been produced through the grades by Dominic.
