The Horse Sport Ireland Eventing and Horse Sport Ireland Jumping Challenge, is a link of Irish international events and is sponsored by the Irish National Federation, Horse Sport Ireland.

All athletes participating in the stated classes are eligible for a €10,000 prize bonus regardless of nationality. This will encourage athletes to make multiple entries at Irish events in a bid to win the €10,000 bonus.

The 2018 Eventing bonus of €10,000 was claimed by Australia’s Kevin McNabb. McNabb finished in podium position at Kilguilkey CIC2*, Camphire CIC2* and Tattersalls CCI2*.

Speaking about the Irish International Events and the Horse Sport Ireland Eventing Challenge, McNab commented:

“I have definitely enjoyed the Irish events. There is always a great atmosphere and they are very rider-friendly events which I really like coming to. As well as that, I feel my horses have always come away as better horses for running at these events. I think the series has been great, and going forward it will certainly attract riders from abroad.”
