Team GAIN rider Judy Reynolds made history at Gothenburg in Sweden over the weekend, when she scored a superb top 10 finish as the first Irish rider to compete at the Reem Acra Dressage World Cup Finals in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Riding  Vancouver K, who is owned by her parents Joe and Kathleen,  she produced an excellent score of 77.339% to finish in eighth place overall against the world’s top Dressage riders.

The result caps an amazing few months for Reynolds, in which she broke several Irish Dressage records, on her way to booking a place for Ireland at the Olympic Games in Rio.

A packed Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg saw Dutch rider Hans Peter Minderhoud and Glock’s Flirt crowned the new Dressage World Cup champions, just edging out home favourite Tinne Vilhelmson Silfvén from Sweden with Don Auriello.
