Eighteen-year-old Cathal Daniels scored a notable second place in the main feature class at Camphire International Horse Trials in Co Waterford last Sunday.

Daniels, who has already been selected for the GAIN Horse Feeds young rider eventing squad that will compete for Ireland in the 2015 European Championships in Poland next month, finished on his dressage score of 49.00 after going clear in the show jumping and cross country phases. Riding Margaret Kinsella’s Irish Sport Horse (ISH) mare Rioghan Rua (Jack of Diamonds X Flagmount King), Daniels finished less than two penalty points off the score of Australia’s Christopher Burton and Nobilis 18.
