SHOW JUMPING: Irish squad named for Hickstead
on 23 July 2018
Shane and Trevor Breen, Anthony Condon, Michael Duffy and Richie Moloney named by Rodrigo Pessoa for Ireland's Hickstead squad

FOLLOWING a runner-up finish in their last points-scoring outing at Falsterbo in Sweden, the Irish show jumping team will bid to make another step towards the 2018 Longines FEI Nations Cup final when they line-out at Hickstead this weekend.

The Irish squad, sponsored by Devenish and The Underwriting Exchange, for the Longines FEI Nations Cup of Great Britain is as follows:

Tipperary’s Shane Breen with Ipswich Van De Wolfsakker – owned by Breen Equestrian, Jos Lansink Horses & Konstantin Pysarenko

Tipperary’s Trevor Breen with Bombay – owned by Willy Matton

Waterford’s Anthony Condon with SFS Aristio – owned by Anthony Condon & John Hales

Galway’s Michael Duffy with EFS Top Contender – owned by Graham Dalton & Ben Dalton

Kilkenny’s Richie Moloney with Freestyle De Muze – owned by Equinimity LLC

Irish team manager Rodrigo Pessoa said: “We are at stage three of this triple header [Falsterbo, Aachen and Hickstead] and having finished second in the first two, we are hoping for another good result. Although we are looking good already to qualify for the final in Barcelona, we are not taking Hickstead lightly and want to keep moral high ahead of the Dublin Horse Show.”

The Longines FEI Nations Cup of Great Britain takes place on Sunday afternoon and is part of three days of live coverage from Hickstead on Sky Sports and comes just 11 days before the last opportunity to score points in the Aga Khan at the Dublin Horse Show.
