KILKENNY’s Sarah O’Donnell and Tipperary’s Yousef Sallam won a week’s training bursary to the Army Equitation School when finishing first and second in the Irish Pony Club/Mackey show jumping Classic 1.20m final at Coilóg Equestrian Centre last Sunday.

Surprisingly, given her family’s many successes in IPC activities, Sarah is the first of the O’Donnells to win this bursary and she did so on her sister Grace’s Diamond Infinity. The Gowran rider competed at the Dublin Horse Show last month with Glor Tire Cruise.
