EVENTING: Irish team for Camphire named
on 22 July 2019
Sarah Ennis, Sam Watson, Brian Morrison and Fred Scala have been named by eventing chef d'equipe Sally Corscadden for the FEI Camphire Nations Cup

IRISH eventing team manager Sally Corscadden has named her team for Ireland’s home leg of the FEI Eventing Nations Cup Series, which takes place this weekend at Camphire International Horse Trials in Co Waterford.

Camphire is hosting the fourth round of the 2019 FEI Eventing Nations Cup Series and this will be Ireland’s first Nations Cup outing of the season before the remaining rounds in France, Belgium and The Netherlands.

The Irish team for the FEI Eventing Nations Cup of Ireland at Camphire is:

Meath’s Sarah Ennis with Woodcourt Garrison (ISH) – Owned by Breda Kennedy

Cork’s Brian Morrison with Global Orchid (ISH) Owned by Brendan Robinson

Carlow’s Fred Scala with Everon Vivendi (ISH) – Owned by Fred Scala

Carlow’s Sam Watson with Imperial Sky (ISH) – Owned by Cathy Byrne & Hannah Watson

The Irish team is a mixture of experienced riders and promising new talent, and includes two members of Ireland’s silver medal winning team from the 2018 World Equestrian Games.

“We are really looking forward to our home Nations Cup in Camphire, commented Corscadden on announcing her team. “It is a lovely venue in a beautiful setting and a super atmosphere. We want to produce a strong competitive performance so it is great to have two of our World Equestrian Games sliver medal winning team riders [Sam Watson and Sarah Ennis] on the squad and to give up and coming riders Brian Morrison and Fred Scala senior team experience.”

The draw for the starting order in the FEI Nations Cup at Camphire takes place this Wednesday. The dressage phase will take place over two days on Thursday and Friday followed by cross- country on Saturday before the final show jumping phase on Sunday.

Competitors from as far afield as China, Japan and New Zealand will be joined by athletes from across Europe, with eight teams set to do battle in the FEI Nations Cup – seeking to win the FEI’s Silver Salver and House of Waterford Crystal’s magnificent Crystal trophy.

In total, Camphire will stage seven international competitions with a total of 330 entries. In addition 70 horses will take part in the Masterclasses for four and five-year-old horses which is sponsored by Horse Sport Ireland.
