“Today has been a remarkable achievement,” commented Walsh, “especially as this was the first year that Ireland had qualified a dressage team for the Paralympics. My congratulations go to everyone involved in this wonderful success.”

PARALYMPIC GAMES : WICKLOW’S HELEN Kearney won the silver medal in the Grade 1a individual competition at Greenwich Park yesterday when riding her Irish Sport Horse gelding Mister Cool to a personal best score of 76.700 per cent.

The 23-year-old from Dunlavin has been competing in para dressage since 2004 and last year claimed bronze at the European Championships on Mister Cool, a 12-year-old grey by Coolcorran Cool Diamond.

Gold in the Grade 1s class went to Britain’s Sophie Christiansen, who achieved a score of 82.750 with Janeiro, while the bronze went to Singapore’s Laurentia Tan on Ruben James 2 (73.650). Ireland’s Geraldine Savage recorded a PB when finishing seventh on Blue Tip Top Too (68.800).

Horse Sport Ireland chairman Joe Walsh said: “I’d like to congratulate Helen Kearney for her fantastic achievement at Greenwich Park today, which was well deserved. It’s another great day for Irish equestrian sport.”

Kearney’s silver medal-winning performance saw Ireland claim team bronze behind Britain and Germany. “Today has been a remarkable achievement,” commented Walsh, “especially as this was the first year that Ireland had qualified a dressage team for the Paralympics. My congratulations go to everyone involved in this wonderful success.”

Yesterday morning, Kilkenny-born James Dwyer, riding Orlando, claimed sixth place in the Grade IV championships on 68.516, while Co Louth’s Eilish Byrne, with her chestnut gelding Youri, returned a score of 73.429 to place fifth in Saturday’s Grade II competition.

The Davidsons aren’t a dynasty yet, but they might become one if Buck Davidson makes history at the Kentucky Horse Park the way his father did 32 years ago.

Bruce Davidson Sr. won the 1978 eventing world championship aboard Might Tango at the fledgling facility in Lexington, four years after taking the title for the first time in Burghley, England, on Irish Cap in 1974. That gave the U.S. the right to stage the next edition of the competition, and it put the Horse Park on the international map.

This month, a greatly expanded and upgraded Horse Park is at the center of that international map as it becomes the first site outside Europe to host the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, a compilation of eight world championships that began in 1990. A statue of the senior Davidson on one of his legendary mounts, Eagle Lion, is prominently positioned just outside the park’s new stadium, where opening ceremonies will be held Saturday.

Bruce Davidson Jr., better known as Buck, last week was named to the U.S. team for the competition, achieving a goal toward which he has been working practically all his life. The 34-year-old athlete will be aboard BallyNoe Castle RM, an Irish Sport Horse gelding owned by Carl and Cassandra Segal of Pottersville, who are happy to be along for the ride.
