The Irish Junior Show Jumping Team won gold this evening at the FEI Youth Nations Cup in Hagen, Germany.
James Kernan’s team of Kilkenny’s Eoin Brennan (Eskola M), Timmy Brennan (Diadema Della Caccia), Tipperary’s Tom Wachman (Cathalina S), Clare’s Coen Williams (Conthanja) and James Brennan finished on a score of 8 to take the gold medal ahead of Germany on 12 faults while The Netherlands collected the bronze on 12 faults.
Speaking after the win, Kernan said: “I was very confident coming to Hagen with such a talented group of riders.
“The first round looked easy but four fences went up in the second round, this put huge pressure on all the teams but our very experienced riders held their nerve to deliver.
“Special mention must go to Tom Wachman for jumping a double clear in both rounds to secure today’s victory.
“I would like to thank the parents and all support staff who make all this possible. We look forward now to the FEI European Champions in Gorla Minore, ITA 10th – 16th July.”
Huge congratulations from all at Horse Sport Ireland
