James O’Haire with China Doll (ISH) – owned by Patricia Heffernan
Speaking after announcing her team, Sally Corscadden said:
“I am pleased to announce the combinations to represent Team Ireland in the Nations Cup at Millstreet International Horse Trials. It is always a huge honour to represent your country at a home International, especially at a venue with such a world class reputation as Millstreet. We are very pleased for the Senior team to have the opportunity to compete at Millstreet, after the successful championships for Ponies, Juniors and Young Riders. We are in the fortunate position to have a very experienced and competitive team. It will be a strong competition, not only from the calibre of riders from the other nations but also from the challenge of the beautifully designed Mike Etherington- Smith Cross Country course at Drishane Castle.”
Millstreet hosts round six of the 2018 FEI Eventing Nations Cup series and will be followed by Waregem (BEL) in September and Boekelo (NED) in October.
Now in it’s fourth year, the 2018 Millstreet International Horse Trials begin on Thursday with the first of two days of Dressage, followed by Cross Country on Saturday and the final Show Jumping phase on Sunday. The schedule will also include one and two star competitions along with pony and young horse classes.
