Horse Sport Ireland (HSI) will get an independent review of Ireland’s failure to qualify a showjumping team for the Olympics. This was reported by The Irish Examiner earlier this month. Ireland’s showjumping team failed twice to qualify for the Olympics; first at the WEG in Kentucky last year and then again during the European Championships in Madrid.
The Irish Examiner writes that the review of the Senior Show Jumping High Performance Programme "will be tasked with identifying the key factors that contributed to the Irish team’s non-qualification for the Olympic Games and will make recommendations for changes in the programme for the future".
It is expected that the report will be ready for the first HSI board meeting in January. As part of their brief, the reviewer will speak individually with riders and team management as well as HSI and Irish Sports Council personnel.
