ENDURANCE: MacGuinness and Bray set for European Championships
on 12 August 2019
Tom MacGuinness and Avril Bray will be representing Ireland at the 2019 Meydan FEI Endurance European Championships this weekend

THE 2019 Meydan FEI Endurance European Championships takes place this Saturday, August 17th at Euston Park in England, as a part of the HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum UK Endurance Festival, with Ireland represented by Avril Bray riding Moro Torcaz and Tom MacGuinness with Horseware Sasha D’Aillais.

In total 20 countries will be represented by 67 athletes at the Euston Park venue which is set within the beautiful Suffolk countryside and will give riders from across the continent the chance to take in magnificent historic parkland, ancient forests, woodlands and river crossings – all on well-maintained tracks with minimal roadwork.

The championship course is run over a total of 160km and Nick Brooks-Ward, who is part of the organising team, is expecting an excellent competition:

“Euston Park is a great venue for endurance; there are so many route options through absolutely lovely park and farmland, and our course designers are working hard to create new routes amongst old favourites, The loops will be of the very highest quality for all competitors to enjoy, whilst still providing a technically challenging championship course,” he said.

This Saturday’s FEI Endurance European Championship will be shown live on FEI TV.

Among the non-championship competitions taking place this weekend at the UK Endurance Festival, Ireland’s Nicola Boud-Tighe will compete in the CEIO2* with Inchaallah Claddah and CEI 1* with Inchaallah Claddah, while in the CEI YJ, Seaic MacMurchadha will ride Tambo.
