Assessment day for eventing squad

February 25, 2011

High Performance Director Ginny Elliot and the Irish eventing team held an assessment day yesterday and riders were given expert feedback in each of the three disciplines. Elliot had the support of some of the world’s top judges and coaches in Kildare, including Gene Mitchell (Dressage Judge) and coach John Ledingham.

Stephen Martin and Martin Burke from the Oympic Council of Ireland took the opportunity to observe the sessions, discuss London test event plans and other issues, as the riders prepare for the European Championships in Germany in August 2011, an Olympic qualifier.
