Ireland is to host a round of the FEI Nations Cup eventing series for 2014.

The event will take place at Ballindenisk in Co Cork on 11-14 April. The series has 9 legs across Europe, starting in Fontainebleau in France (19-23 March) and ending in Boekelo in the Netherlands (9-12 October).

Peter Fell of Ballindenisk said: “This is a great chance to have a leg in Ireland and for our riders to compete on home soil.

Horse Sport Ireland’s Nick Turner added: “The series is something we will be focusing more on this year as a way of developing combinations and the Irish team.”
