Irish Eventing team medal in France

NSEQUESTRIAN.COM

The Irish Eventing team got their preparations for this year’s Olympic Games in Rio off to an excellent start, scoring a podium finish at the Fontainebleau Nations Cup in France.

Having moved up three places on Saturday after the Cross Country phase, Ireland held onto their overnight third place position after the final Show Jumping competition.

Clear rounds from Cathal Daniels with Rioghan Rua (ISH) and Claire Abott riding Euro Prince (ISH), along with four fault scores from Jonty Evans aboard Cooley Rorkes Drift (ISH) and Austin O’Connor riding Kilpatrick Knight (ISH)(TIH), saw Ireland hold off a strong challenge from Australia who had to settle for fourth.
