Speaking about the upcoming Nations Cup, Sally Corscadden said: "It is a very proud moment for Horse Sport Ireland and Eventing Ireland, to be able to name a Nations Cup team with two Senior Individual Medallists as members, World Silver Medallist Padraig McCarthy and European Bronze Medallist Cathal Daniels. Brian Morrison joins Padraig and Cathal as the third team member on Global Orchid who were members of the second placed Nations Cup team in Camphire 2019. Our vision is one of podium success for Ireland on the world stage and all our athletes can be very proud of their achievements over the last two years. Boekelo Nations Cup is a great opportunity to run through the Olympic format and build on our preparations for Tokyo 2020.
