CONGRATULATIONS to Dromore native Susie Berry on being named on the Irish team for the upcoming World Eventing Championships at Pratoni del Vivaro in Italy (September 15th to 18th).

Susie, daughter of veterinary surgeon Callie Berry and her husband Colin, will ride Monbeg By Design who is owned by her good supporter, Helen Caton.

While this 10-year-old was sourced through the Doyles down in Co Wexford, it wasn’t through Sean, Donnchadh or Cormac but another brother, Tomás who, with his wife Marti Rudd, runs Monbeg Sport Horses.

Also named on the team is Killyleagh-based Joseph Murphy whose mount, the 11-year-old Brandenburg gelding Calmaro, is owned by Yeomanstown Stud’s Annette O’Callaghan, Richard Ames of Belline Equestrian in Co Kilkenny and former north of Ireland residents Claire and Charlie Mayne who now live in England.
