the Irish gentleman”

I met Clem for the first time in Hickstead, when the Irish won the Nations Cup title. Clem is all that you imagine when you think of that classical Irish gentleman. He’s charming, friendly, funny and incredibly hard working. In fact, when I spoke with his friends and colleagues, they all agreed that the one word to describe Clem McMahon is “hardworking.”

I thought we better add handsome to the list also because he certainly is popular with the ladies. But before you get too excited ladies, best to know that this man is a one-woman one. That one woman is Stacey McMahon, the star and drive behind Tailored Equestrian. Clem and Stacey have been together for almost 10 years now and have a beautiful son, Louise. They really are a beautiful family!

In addition to being a dedicated family man, Clem is one of Ireland’s leading riders and certainly coming up the ranks to rival the likes of Dennis Lynch, Billy Twomey and Cian O’Connor. And the horse to help him do that is Pacino. The combination have certainly created quite a buzz on the circuit this year with some incredible performances in Rotterdam, Hickstead and Dublin. This combination is certainly one to watch for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
