His name originally is “Crag Cave Slievelrachra” as my family have a cave in Kerry, and they called him “Cave” for short but they had a hard time trying to pronounce the rest of the name! I also had the pleasure of seeing him compete in the London Olympics in 2012 with Karen O’Connor”.Mr Medicott won team gold for Germany with Frank Ostholt at the 2008 Olympics and also represented Germany at the 2010 World Equestrian Games.
