THE busy and multi-talented Kate Derwin is in Germany this weekend as a member of a large contingent of young Irish riders competing at the underage show jumping fixture in Hagen.

The 17-year-old, who is currently based with Carol Gee in Kilkenny, left Ireland on the back of a win and a fifth-place finish in the Dublin Horse Show Junior/Young Rider event horse qualifier at Forth Mountain on Tuesday which followed two placings at the Clyda one-day event on Sunday.
