The Irish Sport Horse Studbook was very prevalent in Eventing at the London Olympic Games 2012 with thirteen Irish Sport Horses representing seven different nations beginning the first phase. Following Cross Country on day two the Irish Sport Horses began to climb the ranks with Imperial Cavalier and High Kingdom moving into top ten positions. A nail-biting individual final in the Showjumping phase resulted in a total of four Irish Sport Horses claiming top ten positions overall; 5th Imperial Cavalier (Mary King (GBR)), 7th Master Crusoe (Aoife Clark (IRL), 8th High Kingdom (Zara Phillips (GBR)) and Mr Medicott (Karen O’Connor (USA)). This is twice the number of Irish Sport Horses who finished in the top ten in Eventing at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008.
