Showjumping sensation Bertram Allen was honoured yesterday at the prestigious The Irish Field Awards at the K Club in Straffan, Co Kildare. Allen was named The Irish Field Show Jumper of the Year after an incredible 2014 which included five star Grand Prix wins in Dublin and Lummen, finishing best of the Irish (seventh individually) at the World Equestrian Games and also winning the World Cup qualifier in Verona.
Accepting his award, the Wexford native said: "I am delighted to win this award, it is due to a massive team effort that I can do what I do. My sister is a great help to me in Germany, my parents are at home but are always at the shows. It takes a big effort from everyone in the family and in the team to achieve success. My next focus will be the World Cup final in Las Vegas, followed by the European Championships in Aachen where the goal is Olympic qualification for Ireland for Rio in 2016."
