The organisers of Kilguilkey International Horse Trials are delighted to announce further details regarding this year’s event, taking place in Cecilstown, Mallow, Co. Cork from 21st – 22nd June.

In a new sponsorship agreement for 2014, the CIC2* class will be sponsored by Pegus Horse Feeds and the CIC1* class will be sponsored by Fernhill Sport Horses.  Full details of the prizes on offer for each class are listed below:

 

CIC 2*
Kindly sponsored by Pegus Horse Feeds

  • Prize Fund €3000
  • Stallion Nomination from  Scarteen Stud for ‘Newmarket Venture’ to owner of the highest placed mare.
  • Highest placed Rider throughout class (Multiple Rides) will also receive a Portable XC Fence.

  • Highest placed Rider throughout class (Multiple Rides) will also receive a Portable XC Fence.

A CNCP2* class will run alongside International Classes throughout the weekend Dressage and SJ will take place on the Saturday and XC will follow the CIC1*.  Danny has been the Official XC Course Builder for the Pony Europeans working for International Designer Mike Etherington-Smith.  With the Europeans just a month away Kilguilkey International will play a key part in the final selection process.

Eric Winter Int’l Course Designer for Kilguilkey for the 2nd year has already set out the tracks.  This year there a number of new fences on both tracks, old fashioned type, big, bold with plenty of gallop.  Show Jumping this year will take place on the grass rather than the sand offering more room and scope for Tony Hurley (SJI) to build.

National Classes will run on the Sunday.  We are once again delighted to host the Hyde Equine CNCP1* Championships Final and it is great to see many of last year’s riders from this class now progress to CNCP2*. All EI 100 and EI90 classes will also run on the Sunday.  Once again a XC Fence will be awarded as an additional prize to the highest placed rider throughout the National Classes open to both Junior and senior riders.

We really hope to improve on last years event and with the fabulous support and enthusiasm from our Sponsors, Eventing Ireland and competitors, we already feel we’re heading in the right direction.

REMINDER!
