Our UK based young Irish Sport Horse representatives shone yet again during the KBIS British Eventing Young Horse Championships at Osberton International Horse Trials.  Taking joint first in the 4 year-old division was the Irish Sport Horse Ballycanu ridden by Sophie Jenman (GBR). The Tinaranas Inspector sired gelding was bred in County Wexford by Bryan Maguire – breeder of Rolex 2014 winner Bay My Hero (William Fox-Pitt).

The five year-old championsip was won by William Fox-Pitt riding the Loughehoe Guy sired Irish Sport Horse gelding Reinstated. Irish-bred event horses received a further boost when William Fox-Pitt rode Fernhill Pimms to victory in the CCI2* at the same venue.
