Treo Eile Thoroughbred Eventing League

TREO EILE is delighted to announce the introduction of the Thoroughbred Eventing League, aimed at those competing Thoroughbreds in Eventing Ireland competitions this year.  Starting at Blackstairs in Wexford on March 19th, the league will run until the final event of the calendar in Punchestown in October.  Carrying €2,000 in prize money, with a pot of €1,000 to the winner, points will be allocated for completion, double clears and placings to any rider competing on a Thoroughbred.  Each combination may move through the classes to keep progressing.

With over 70 registered Thoroughbreds competing in Eventing Ireland, the competition will be tough and the aim is to increase participation of former racehorses.  Treo Eile founder, Sarah Sands explained “Eventing is a perfect discipline for thoroughbreds, the stamina required during cross country is becoming really important and this is where they excel in terms of bravery and speed as they’re natural athletes.  They’re also bred for movement and conformation so dressage is usually very achievable.  Show jumping can catch them out sometimes, but with training the technique improves considerably and we’ll be supporting this with clinics as the season goes on”.

Eventing Ireland Chairman, Chris Hunt added “We are delighted to have Treo Eile on board sponsoring a league for Thoroughbred horses. The TB pedigree has always brought stamina, speed and courage, vital characteristics in the performance of a top level event horse.  We look forward to following the league, seeing what horses come out on top and hopefully the addition of some new horse and riders competing in the sport of Eventing.”

The league will be updated weekly, after each event.   All TB registered horses will be taken from the Event Programmes, so please ensure you have submitted all the details to Head Office so breeding is recorded correctly.   If you have a thoroughbred and it is not showing please contact head office or nominate their combination to hello@treoeile.com.
