SRNC Spain 2018 started off as an eventful one, with UCC's Liza Hurley taking a tumble and breaking a leg and then taking another tumble and dislocating her shoulder. However our super squad powered on with Chef d'equipe taking Liza's place on the team. Speedy recovery Liza!! #upuccupbreakinlimbs
We had three placings in the Top Ten Overall Combined. Christine O'Donnell was placed 3rd Overall Combined, Emma Kennedy was placed 6th and Maria Byrne 9th. In Dressage, Christine was placed 10th. And again we had three placings in the Top Ten in Showjumping; Emma was placed 3rd, Maria was placed 7th and Christine was placed 8th. Emma had a tough 3rd round and ended up with some nasty teeth injuries. Also sending Emma our well wishes!!
The Team did us so proud coming home with Team GOLD Overall Combined and Team BRONZE in Showjumping! And also a 6th place in Dressage! Emma was on International Team 1 and she helped them with a Team SILVER in Showjumping and Team BRONZE Overall! Our OAP Paddy Mac Donagh was on the Gold Team that was placed Team GOLD in Dressage!
We are already looking forward to SRNC Romania. The only question is who will be on our Super Squad this time! Stay tuned.
