Ireland will be represented at Fontainebleau Pony Nations Cup this weekend. The Nations Cup will take place on Saturday at 2.30pm GMT with the Grand Prix taking place on Sunday from 12.30pm. 38 ponies have travelled from Ireland to compete at the French competition with 20 Irish riders. The Pony Show Jumping Nations Cup squad is listed below, Tom Slattery Team Manager will pick a team of four on Friday.


  • Harry Allen – Cassandra Van Het Roelhof
  • Cormac Foley – Crown Jewel
  • Grace O’Donnell – Orchids Vienna
  • Cora Sharkey – The Galway Blazer
  • Abbie Sweetnam – Spartacus Reape


Pony Show Jumping Team Manager Tom Slattery said “I am really looking forward to the show, Fontainebleau is always a good show. The Pony Spring Tour has once again worked out very well for selecting our team and individual combinations. This year we are travelling over with a relatively inexperienced squad, it is a young squad and none of them have competed at a Nations Cup before. It will be a good test for them and I am looking forward to seeing them perform over there.”


Harry Allen competes in Fontainebleau this weekend while his brother Bertram Allen competes for the World Cup Title in Las Vegas riding the grey mare Molly Malone V.
