When speaking with Angela McGahern about the first leg of the Young Event Horse Series she noted that ‘The Young Event Horse Series got off to a great start in Tullylish. We had a lovely sunny day, and the course was well manicured and presented. Adam Stephenson was the course builder, and he built a great track. It was very educational for the young horses, as while it posed questions, it was accommodating enough to allow all horses to jump around and gain valuable experience’. Angela went on to say that ‘There was a really good standard of horses presented, and they were all well turned out. The horses that qualified performed well and are deserved of a place in the Performance Championships in Lambertstown later in the year’. Angela concluded that ‘Overall, the day ran very smoothly. Between the Chief Steward on the day, Pat Coleman, and the Equipe app which was used to live stream competition times and results, the whole event ran very efficiently making it even more enjoyable for all involved.’
The next leg of the Young Event Horse Series takes place in Scarteen, Co. Limerick on the 8th of July, with entries closing at 10pm on the 3rd of July.
