FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing Series

Some of the world’s greatest event riders will be heading to the Green Glens Arena and adjoining Drishane Castle Demesne in 2018 as it was announced recently that Millstreet will host the Irish leg of the 2018 FEI Nations Cup™ Eventing Series from August 22nd to August 26th next year. Speaking after the announcement, Millstreet director Thomas Duggan said:

“It is an honour to be bringing international team competition of the highest order back to Millstreet. Having seen the extraordinary level of talent at our recent Pony (2014) and Junior/Young Rider (2016) European Championships, I’m looking forward to seeing what senior riders make of the Mike Etherington-Smith designed Cross Country track and the unique Irish welcome we offer to all visitors.” – read the full article on Millstreet.horse
