Spectacular Runner-Up spot for McGuinness in Pan American Games
- 9 October 2013, 10:11
LAST weekend, Horseware founder and managing director Tom MacGuinness scored an incredible second place in the Open 120km endurance race at the Pan-American Games in Uruguay riding his own Horseware LR Artista.
With two horses, Horseware LR Artista and Horseware LR Kim, MacGuinness has been endurance riding and competing in FEI CEI** level races for less than a year. His recent results will see his FEI world ranking move into the top 500, from being ranked 1,595 in June.
MacGuinness’s goal is to represent Ireland at WEG 2014 in Normandy, and he is well on the way to achieving qualification with only two more completions needed to be eligible to join the Team Ireland ranks.
Although still a relatively small sport in Ireland, endurance riding has a dedicated following and continues to grow, with a huge international following.
