2010[edit]

For the second year running, Twomey and Je T'aime Flamenco took the top spot in the 4* Grand Prix of Amsterdam in January.

In February, Billy, with Je T'aime Flamenco, was selected as part of the Irish Nations Cup Team that competed in Dubai. The Irish Team finished 7th of the 11 that started. The duo then went on to be the highest placed of the Irish in the €300,000 Grand Prix, finishing 8th.

Towards the end of April, Twomey was selected as part of Ireland's Nations Cup Team in Lummen, Belgium. He was selected as last to jump (with Tinka's Serenade). Denis Lynch (with Abberuail van het Dingeshof) was first to go, followed by Alex Duffy (Tampa), and Shane Breen (Carmena Z). In the first round they all jumped clear apart from Alex Duffy, who had 22 faults. As Duffy had the discarded score, he did not jump in the second round. The remaining trio then produced 3 more clear rounds to tie for first place with Australia. The jump-off saw Chris Chugg of Australia go head-to-head with Billy Twomey, with Chugg having four faults and Twomey jumping his third clear round of the competition to secure the win for Ireland. Twomey also directed the grey Irish Sport Horse – Cavinem – to 4th in a Table A class. To end the show, he directed Tinka's Serenade to 8th in the Grand Prix.

Twomey travelled to Hamburg for the second leg of the Global champions Tour. The show started well with him securing 6th place (with Tinka's Serenade) in the 'Mercedes-Benz Championat of Hamburg' – only 0.4 seconds behind the winner, but unfortunate to have 4 faults in the jump-off.

Twomey was then selected for the Irish team at the second leg of the Meydan Nations Cup series at the CSIO5* of Rome. In the opening class – a 1m40 speed class – he finished in 5th with Cavenim. Twomey was last to jump for the Irish team that finished equal 3rd in the Nations Cup on 12 faults: Cameron Hanley (Southwind VDL) – (8)/4; Darragh Kenny (Obelix) – 4/(8); Cian O'Connor (K Club Lady) – 4/0; Billy Twomey (Tinka's Serenade) – 0/4. On the final day, Twomey directed Cavenim to 6th place in the 1m45 speed class.

He was again selected to represent Ireland at the third leg of the Meydan Nations Cup Series at the CSIO5* St. Gallen, Switzerland. The team finished 4th in the Nations Cup which brought them up two places on the overall leader-board to 4th. Twomey was selected as last to go on Je T'aime Flamenco and they were the only partnership on the Irish team to complete a faultless round: Shane Breen (Carmena Z) 5/5; Darragh Kenny (Obelix) 5/(16); Cian O'Connor (K Club Lady) 9/4; Billy Twomey (Je T'aime Flamenco) (9)/0. Although Twomey won no classes at the show, he had a very successful week leading to him capturing the Leading Rider of the Show. Cavenim secured a 3rd and 4th in two Table C speed classes – picking up 12,500 CHF. Tinka's Serenade finished 3rd in a 1m50 Table A speed class, and 5th in a 1m45 jump-off class – picking up 6,600 CHF. Je T'aime Flamenco then topped off the week by finishing 4th (and winning 30,000 CHF) in the Grand Prix with just one time fault in each round.

Next on the calendar for Twomey was the 4th leg of the Global Champions Tour in Cannes, France. On day 2, he directed Sue Davies Tinka's Serenade to 2nd place in the 1m50 jump-off class. They were less than half a second off the pace, and collected €4,000.

For the final weekend of June, Towmey travelled to Monte Carlo for the 5th leg of the Global Champions Tour. He got off to a good start steering his new ride Tackeray into 2nd place in a 1m45 speed class. The competition was won by fellow Irishman Denis Lynch. On Saturday, he took third place and €3,000 in the 1m50 jump-off class, again, with Michelle Gatland's Tackeray. In the Grand Prix on Saturday Twomey chose to ride Je t'Aime Flamenco. They jumped a faultless first round and had 4 faults in the second to finish 10th.

Twomey flew straight from Monte Carlo to Hickstead (UK) for the DFS Hickstead Derby on Sunday. After misplacing his passport, and the plane arriving 2 hours late, he made it just in time to warm-up for the class! He rode Sue Davies Blue Thunder and had four faults to finish 3rd and collect nearly £9,000.

Back to the Global Champions Tour next – this time at the CSI5* Estoril, Portugal. Twomey started well by jumping clear with Je t'Aime Flamenco in the opening class (on Friday) – a 1m50 speed class – to finish 6th and collect €600. The clear rounds continued for him as he jumped a double clear on Tackeray to finish 2nd (and collect €5,000) in the 'Trophy Massimo Dutti' – a 1m45 jump-off class that evening. In a GCT Grand Prix that saw only six (out of 39) make it through the first two rounds to the jump-off, Twomey had 4 faults in Round B settling for 9th place and €6,000.

On his way to Aachen for the World Equestrian Festival, Twomey stopped off at the inaugural 'Royal Festival of the Horse' at Stoneleigh Park in the UK. He won the Grand Prix (and £10,000) on Tinka's Serenade, beating John Whitaker and his 2008 Olympic ride – Peppermill – into second place.

The World Equestrian Festival at the CHIO5* Aachen, Germany was next for Twomey. In the opening competition, he steered Tackeray to 8th place. He then rode Tinka's Serenade to 5th place in the second class of the show. In the 6th leg of the Meydan FEI Nations Cup on Thursday, the Irish team finished on a 4 fault score to win: Billy Twomey ( Tinka's Serenade) 4/0; Dermott Lennon (Hallmark Elite) 0/0; Cian O'Connor (K Club Lady) 0/0; Denis Lynch (Lantinus) (4)/(NS). On Saturday, Twomey landed the Accumulater with Tackeray, bagging €6,600. Twomey opted to ride Je t'Aime Flamenco in Sunday's Grand Prix, and finished 7th with 4 faults in the second round to take home another €8,000 from the show.

Twomey was once again selected as part of the Irish Team – this time at the Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead, Great Britain. Although he didn't have the most successful week, he helped the Irish Team secure their future in the Meydan FEI Nations Cup for another year by earning 3 points by finishing 6th in the Nations Cup on Friday, which was won by the host nation; Shane Breen (Carmena Z) 12/9; Dermott Lennon (Hallmark Elite) 9/(EL); Billy Twomey (Je t'Aime Flamenco) 5/1; Denis Lynch (Nabab's Son) 12/0.

The final of the Meydan FEI Nations Cup was next for Twomey. This was held on 'home territory' at the RDS Showgrounds in Dublin, Ireland. On Day 2, he directed Je t'Aime Flamenco to 3rd place in the 1m50 – 1m60 'Power and Speed' class. In the Nations Cup on Friday, Ireland finished joint 2nd on 20 faults with the USA: Billy Twomey (Tinka's Serenade) 0/4; Dermott Lennon (Hallmark Elite) (12)/(8); Cian O'Connor (K Club Lady) 8/0; Denis Lynch (Nabab's Son) 8/0. This result secured Ireland 4th place in the overall standings. On Saturday, Twomey and Tinka's Serenade won the 'Dublin Stakes' – a 1m50 jump-off class. The Longines International Grand Prix on Sunday marked the return to form for Je t'Aime Flamenco, as Twomey steered the 10yo stallion to 3rd place, picking up €26,000.

Next was the Final of the Global Champions Tour at the CSI5* Rio de Janeiro. Although he had no luck in the €300,000 Grand Prix, he still managed to collect nearly €20,000 in prize money, most of this coming from Tinka's Serenade 3rd in the 1m45 jump-off class.

Twomey then travelled to the CSI5* Barcelona, Spain with 3 of his horses. He made his intentions clear by winning the opening class – a 1m45 speed class – with Cavinem and collected €1,500. On day 2, the pair also took the honours in the Accumulator class earning €3,100. He and Je t'Aime Flamenco then went on to take the €120,000 Grand Prix and collect the keys to a Seat car and €10,000.

After the opening competition – a Speed Class – Twomey lay in 44th on just 5.54 faults, and the Team lay in 8th – less than 8 faults of Gold. Day 2 saw the Nations Cup competition. After the first round, Twomey jumped up to 13th after jumping clear, and the Team had dropped to 12th – missing the cut to jump in the second round and fight for Olympic qualification. As Twomey was ranked so highly in the Individual rankings, he was invited to jump in the final round of the Nations Cup. Here he picked up just 1 time fault to move up to 8th. Day 3 saw the 'Top 30 Grand Prix'. The pair picked up 8 faults in the first round but bounced back with a great clear in the second round to finish in 11th place overall on a final total of 14.54 faults.
