Eventing: Silver Medal for Dublin’s Aoife Clark at World Championships

Updated: October 20, 2013

Dublin’s Aoife Clark made history at the World Breeding Championships for young Eventing horses in France on Sunday with Ireland’s best ever result at the competition.

After three days of hard-fought contest at le Lion d’Angers with Richard Last’s Irish Sport Horse gelding Fernhill Adventure, the 32 year-old had one fence down in the final show jumping phase to take the silver medal in the seven year-old championship, an improvement of one place over her position after the earlier dressage and cross country phases.

A clear show jumping round also produced a tenth place in the championships for Ireland’s Ciaran Glynn with Susanna Francke and Peter Cole’s Irish Sport Horse mare November Night.

The seven year-old championship was won by France’s Thomas Carlile and Sirocco du Gers. The Frenchman also took the gold medal in the six year-old championship with Tenareze.
