Irish Universities Riding Clubs Association
On the 7-11th July, six Irish student riders travelled to the third Student Riding Nations Cup competition of the year, in London Ontario, Canada.
Our team consisted of Ben Crawford, Natalie Quinlivan and Sara Glynn and we also had three individual riders being Gary Flynn, Kevin Veale and Aislinn Ronayne.
Once again the riders who travelled have had a very successful trip. Sara was closely pitched at the post in the Dressage final to come second. Ben achieved 4th in the Show Jumping with one of our individuals Gary coming 3rd, both only just missed out of riding in the final round of the jumping.
In the Team Rankings, the Irish Team achieved Team Bronze. For the team show jumping rankings, the Irish team were just out of the top 3, coming 4th. For the combined title from both the Dressage and Show Jumping, the team came 6th.
These results are superb results especially as we always have the Cups that are presented at the end of the year in sights, with Ireland after two SRNC's this year lying in second place for the President's Cup (combined Dressage and Show Jumping) and lying 4th in both the Show Jumping and Dressage Cups.
