Speaking about the Series final, Horse Sport Ireland’s Director of Breeding & Programmes, Alison Corbally, said; “It is wonderful to see so many of the horses that have been selected for the World Breeding Championships, in Lanaken, competing here today and putting in such strong performances. The standard of jumping in the finals has been very very good, as you can see from so many combinations getting through to the jump-off despite having to face very strong tracks. The Series this year has been a great success and we have some very exciting young Irish Sport Horses on the circuit.”
