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.

Kilguilkey House International – Sunday

Michael Ryan held onto his overnight lead to win the feature class at the inaugural Kilguilkey House International Horse Trials today. Riding Carol & Tom Henry’s ‘Ballylynch Wizard,’ the London 2012 team rider added just two time penalties to his dressage score; keeping him ahead of his wife Patricia with Tullineaskey Hi-Ho on her return to International competition after an injury earlier in the eventing season. Michael’s victory also secures him the Dan Coleman Memorial Trophy, which is awarded to the best Munster-based rider.

The cross country phase brought competitors across 3km of undulating farm land over a course designed by Great Britain’s Eric Winter. Blue skies and temperatures in the mid-twenties replaced the early morning mist and the going proved ideal across all classes.

In the CIC* competition, a clear round across the country led to the Army Equitation School’s Capt. Brian Curran Cournane retaining his position at the top of the leaderboard. Rodney O’ Donnell completed just one penalty behind with his own Hillcrest Harry.Meanwhile, in the hydeequine.com CNCP1* Championship which took place alongside the International classes, victory went the way of Lucy Hancock riding Comical Con.

The inaugural running of this event was warmly received by competitors and spectators alike and Event Director Danny Dulohery was delighted with the feedback he has received. ‘Despite the relatively low number of entries, we would like to thank everyone for the incredible support we have received. The important thing is that every horse and rider got home safely. We will continue to improve our events and we’re looking ahead to next year already!’

Following their diversification from farming to equestrian enterprise, Kilguilkey House was recently awarded the IRD Duhallow Best Agri-Business Award. The venue has benefitted from LEADER funding through IRD Duhallow.

Final results for the CIC classes are available on Eventing Ireland.

 

Kilguilkey House International – Saturday

Michael Ryan heads the CIC** leaderboard at the inaugural Kilguilkey House International Horse Trials following the conclusion of the first two phases today. Under clear blue skies, the Irish Olympian riding Ballylynch Wizard impressed the judges in the dressage arena and added nothing to his score in the showjumping phase where Tony Hurley’s demanding track resulted in only six clear rounds within the time. The other half of the Donegan Ryan Eventing team; Patricia Ryan lies close behind with Tullineaskey Hi-Ho.

In the CIC* competition, the Army Equitation School’s Capt. Brian Curran Cournane leads the way with Stonehavens Tonduff with Rodney O’ Donnell just one penalty behind with Hillcrest Harry.

Meanwhile, the hydeequine.com CNCP1* Championship which is taking place alongside the International classes is currently led by Lucy Hancock riding Comical Con.

Tomorrow, the focus turns to the cross-country course; which has been designed by International designer Eric Winter. The track features twenty natural fences including banks, logs, ditches and an impressive new water complex. The course has a good cover of grass, which should make for perfect going.

Following their diversification from farming to equestrian enterprise, Kilguilkey House was recently awarded the IRD Duhallow Best Agri-Business Award. The venue has benefitted from LEADER funding through IRD Duhallow.

The Cross Country phase gets underway at Kilguilkey House from 10am tomorrow with a range of National classes scheduled to start at the same time. Further information is available on www.eventingireland.com or www.kilguilkeyhouse.com.
