  • 6 July 2017, 20:13

Horse Sport Ireland are delighted to announce the GAIN Irish Young Rider (Under 21) and Junior (Under 18) squads for the upcoming FEI European Eventing Championships, which take place at Millstreet in Co Cork from July 20th – 23rd, 2017.

The first of two days of Dressage will begin on Thursday July 20th and this will be followed by Cross Country on Saturday, before the medals are decided after the final Show Jumping phase on Sunday July 23rd.

Irish Eventing Young Rider Team Manager Sally Corscadden said:

“Team Ireland Young Rider management are pleased to announce 12 combinations are qualified for the Young Rider European Championships in Millstreet. There are 12 places available for the home nation (a team of 4 and 8 individuals). The team of 4 will be selected after the first veterinary inspection in Millstreet. We are in the strong position of having some very experienced riders, such as Junior European Team Gold medallists Cathal Daniels, Susie Berry and Nessa Briody to call upon and we all feel it would be the ultimate prize to win a championship medal on home soil.”

Irish Junior Eventing team manager Debbie Byrne added:

“I am very excited to be announcing my squad of 12 riders and reserves. We have a depth of experience at championship level, having inherited pony riders and three riders remaining from last year’s Junior Europeans. We anticipate Millstreet will be a challenging track, however our training has been going very well throughout the season. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my riders, parents and owners, who have truly shown such commitment to the Junior High Performance Programme, and also to our very valued sponsors. We promise to do our very best to achieve medal success.”
