Millstreet FEI Eventing Nations Cup Presented by Connolly’s RED MILLS
With Millstreet International Horse Show CSI2* well underway, the countdown to next week’s Millstreet International Horse Trials continues and The Duggan Family and the Organising Committee are delighted to announce that the feature Millstreet CICO3* FEI Eventing Nations Cup™ will be presented by Connolly’s RED MILLS.
The FEI Eventing Nations Cup™ series got underway in Italy in April and has since taken in venues in Great Britain, Poland, the USA and France. Millstreet forms the penultimate stage before the final in Boekelo (NED) this October and after 5 legs, a strong team from France will travel to Ireland hoping to further extend their lead at the top of the overall standings.
Victories at Vairano (Italy), Strzegom (Poland) and their home leg in Le Pin au Haras give the French team a ten point advantage over Great Britain while a win on home soil next weekend would move Ireland up to sixth place in the current rankings. The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games will feature a restructured Eventing Team competition and the Millstreet Nations Cup class will act as an official Test Event for the new format; teams will comprise three members with an opportunity introduced to make substitutions during the competition.
Connolly’s RED MILLS have been long standing supporters of equestrian sport in Ireland through their sponsorship of initiatives including the show-jumping Spring Tour and the Connolly’s RED MILLS Eventing SuperLeague to name but a few.
Gareth Connolly, Sales and Marketing Director Connolly’s RED MILLS said, “We enjoy a great partnership with the team at Millstreet and are looking forward to our sponsored jumping class on Saturday and presenting next week’s Millstreet CICO3* FEI Eventing Nations Cup™. At Connolly’s RED MILLS we are passionate about producing quality feed products designed to support the high-performance horse and to be able to support our customers through these events means a lot to us. We wish all competitors the very best of luck and we look forward to meeting many of them and their teams at Millstreet.”
Speaking about the partnership, Event Director Thomas Duggan said, ‘We are delighted that Connolly’s RED MILLS are continuing to support all of our equestrian events in the Green Glens Arena, including this prestigious leg of the FEI Eventing Nations Cup™.
