Ireland’s GAIN Equine Nutrition sponsored representatives for the FEI European Dressage Championships for Juniors and Young Riders in Hartpury have been named by team manager Anne Marie Dunphy.

Martha Jobling Purser with Ivan Carlos will compete in the Juniors while Victoria Campbell, with Iotti Van Bergsham, fly the tricolor in the Young Riders competition in late July.

“I am delighted to select these two outstanding athletes for Hartpury,” said team manager Anne Marie Dunphy.

“Martha and Vicky have been longstanding members of the HSI High Performance Youth Dressage Programme and are no strangers to European Championships.

“They have both competed on pony teams in the past and have now transitioned successfully to junior and young rider divisions respectively.

“Martha and Ivan Carlos have forged a strong partnership since last autumn and they have had an outstanding season at junior level including victory in the team test at Le Mans amongst other good placings.

“Vicky introduced ‘Iotti’ to international young rider classes at Compiegne in May, qualifying for the Kur, a great achievement having purchased him as an unbacked three-year-old old and produced him herself to this level.”
