It's time we introduced you to Tommy Harty ahead of representing Ireland's at SRNC Great Britain. Tommy last represented the #supersquad at the at the World Finals in Belgium where they won a team Silver in Show Jumping and a team Bronze in combined. Tommy also placed 5th overall and 6th in dressage. Let's hope he can repeat it again next weekend!
What are you studying and where?
What is your proudest equestrian achievement?
Representing Ireland on underage show jumping squads and winning European Team Gold Medal way back when. I’ve had some great times as well competing at the RDS and producing young horses.
How many years have you been on the #supersquad?
This is my 4th year on the dream team.
What are you most looking forward to as being part of the squad?
This year I’m really looking forward to introducing a lot of the newbies to student riding and hopefully getting some good results with the team.
Are you currently competing, fill us in?
Unfortunately at the moment I’m not. My studies are taking up most of my time at the moment and I’ve been in Africa for most of the summer working in a hospital. Once I’m finished my degree, I’m really looking forward to getting back on the show jumping circuit and hopefully there will be a few nice horses at home at that stage.
What is your first memory relating to a horse?
Hunting when I was 5 years old and falling off into a freezing stream in the middle of winter.
Where can we find you on social media?
