The GAIN Horse Feeds Young Rider team of Elizabeth Hayden, Joshua Pim, Jodie O’Keefe and Harold Megahey have moved up three positions afters todays gruelling cross country. Weather conditions at the Vale Sabrosa venue proved difficult and as a consequence the cross country was held up as a Lightning Storm passed.
Irish riders put in a spectacular performance with five clear rounds, four Irish riders now lie in the top ten and five Irish riders in the top 15. Unfortunately for Jodie O’Keefe the competition came to an end with a fall, however neither horse or rider were injured. Tomorrow will see the final Showjumping phase take place.
Elizabeth Hayden and Miracle currently lie in 4th , Harold Megahey and Chuckelberry lie in 5th, Tony Kennedy and Wisteria Lane (competing individually) lie in 7th , Josh Pim and The Irish Minstrel lie in 9th, Jennifer Diamond and Early Spring (competing individually) lie in 13th .
