Horse Sport Ireland are delighted to announce that the €20,000 bonus incentive scheme (€10,000 for Eventing & €10,000 for Show Jumping), aimed at attracting more international riders and in turn increasing entries at International Eventing and Show Jumping venues in Ireland, will run again in 2019.
The Horse Sport Ireland Eventing and Horse Sport Ireland Jumping Challenge, is a link of Irish international events and is sponsored by the Irish National Federation, Horse Sport Ireland.
All athletes participating in the stated classes are eligible for a €10,000 prize bonus regardless of nationality. This will encourage athletes to make multiple entries at Irish events in a bid to win the €10,000 bonus.
The 2018 Eventing bonus of €10,000 was claimed by Australia’s Kevin McNabb. McNabb finished in podium position at Kilguilkey CIC2*, Camphire CIC2* and Tattersalls CCI2*.
Speaking about the Irish International Events and the Horse Sport Ireland Eventing Challenge, McNab commented:
“I have definitely enjoyed the Irish events. There is always a great atmosphere and they are very rider-friendly events which I really like coming to. As well as that, I feel my horses have always come away as better horses for running at these events. I think the series has been great, and going forward it will certainly attract riders from abroad.”
