Show Jumping5th Year Kate Derwin travelled to Belgium at the start of September to represent Ireland at the Show Jumping FEI Youth Nations’ Cup World Finals. This event features riders between the ages of 16 and 18. Kate commented that the course proved tricky when compared to others throughout the year. However, her horse; Rocky was in very good form over the whole week. This combined with the support given by her family, teammates and trainer resulted in Kate putting in a fantastic performance and coming away with individual 1st. Her success combined with her teammates’ resulted in Ireland claiming Team 2nd. This year’s jumping season is now over which will allow Kate and Rocky some well-deserved R&R. Next season sees Kate taking a big step up when she will be aiming to compete at the senior level at the Sunshine Tour in Portugal. We wish her every success in the future and congratulate her on her stellar performance to date.
