Today Robert Splaine, chef d'equipe, announced the squad to represent Ireland in the 2nd leg of the Meydan Nations Cup series which will take place on Friday week, May 28, in Rome. Cian and K Club Lady are included in the selection.
Cian has had some very good results with the mare, most notably jumping double clear and finishing fourth in the 1m50 class at the Global Tour in Valencia. That they have been selected already to represent their country in a Nations' Cup is a great tribute, given that Cian has only been riding the horse for seven weeks.
On his selection Cian said: "I'm delighted to have got the call up for Rome. The Meydan Series is the top level of show jumping and although it's a tough ask I feel we will be ready for the challenge."
The other squad members include Capt. David O'Brien, Cameron Hanley, Billy Twomey and Darragh Kenny.
