EVENTING: Kennedy named for European Championships squad
on 08 August 2019
Tony Kennedy and the Irish-bred Westeria Lane have been called up to be part of Ireland's squad for the European Eventing Championships at Luhmühlen at the end of August

IRISH eventing team manager Sally Corscadden has announced that Tony Kennedy and The Irish Sport Horse Westeria Lane have been added to the Irish Eventing squad for the upcoming 2019 European Eventing Championships which take place in Luhmühlen from August 29th to September 1st. The news comes after it was confirmed that Clare Abbott will miss the championships after her horse Europrince picked up an injury.

“Stepping up to join the squad will be U25 rider Tony Kennedy and his experienced horse Wisteria Lane. We are very fortunate to have a combination that have already successfully completed Luhmühlen this year finishing a very credible 14th. Tony was a member of the bronze medal winning Young Rider (U21) team at the Strzegom Europeans in 2015 alongside teammate Cathal Daniels. This is a great opportunity for Tony to debut on a senior team,” she said.
