GAIN HORSE FEEDS IRISH YOUNG RIDERS EVENTING TEAM WIN BRONZE AT EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

Young Riders Eventing team 2015

Despite being deprived of a discard score in the final show jumping phase at the European Young Rider Eventing Championships in Strzegom, Poland, the Irish team held on to Bronze Medal position after the cross country element.

With all three scores counting for the medal palcing, the Irish Gain Horse Feeds team finished on a total of 164.80, holding off a challenge from the Swedish team, who completed on 181.90. Gold went to Great Britain with 128.10, while Silver was claimed by Germany with a score of 140.40.

Ireland’s last man to jump, Galway’s 18 year-old Cathal Daniels, not only helped seal his team’s medal position with a clear round on the Irish Sport Horse Rioghan Rua, but also secured him sixth place in the overall rankings.

Congratulations to team manager Sally Corscadden and all the team on their fantastic performance!
