The Irish Eventing team became Ireland’s first sports team to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics when they secured team silver at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina. Members of the Irish Eventing squad have built on this success over the past 18 months, securing both an individual World Silver medal and Individual European Bronze medal for Ireland as well as a team podium finish in the Nations Cup at Camphire International Horse Trials and numerous individual wins at the highest international level.
