SHOW JUMPING – IRELAND FINISH SIXTH IN GERMANY’S CHILDREN ON HORSES NATIONS’ CUP

FC badgeIRELAND was one of five teams of the nine starters who finished the first round of the Children on Horses Nations’ Cup in Hagen Germany on a zero score today (Thursday), with six nations going through to the second round.

However, a mammoth battle for superiority then followed amongst the qualifiers, with a high attrition rate as fences fell for almost every nation.

At the close, Italy and the Netherlands emerged as the leaders, both showing a four-fault total over two rounds, and in the subsequent jump-off Italy took the Cup on time.

Ireland finished sixth overall, with 20 faults on the board, and the Irish scores were:
Harry Allen/Wild Thing L 0/4
Abby Morton/Patch Mills Laura 0/12
Killian Ryan/Boomerang Breeze (ISH) 14/4
Emilie Larkin/Flexing (ISH) 0/12.

Chef d’Equipe for the Irish team was Comdt. John Ledingham.
