THIS year’s edition of L’Année Hippique has been late arriving due to a change in publisher, but it has now landed and is available through Dermot Forde, the exclusive distributor for Ireland.
The new book retains its traditional high quality standards, as it records all the memorable international equestrian occasions of 2019.
From an Irish perspective, there is coverage of the many and varied events in which Team Ireland has been so successful this year, including the European Championships in all three Olympic disciplines and the World Championships for Young Horses.
As a result, there are pictures of and comments from the Irish riders involved and there is also an interesting interview with Irishman, Seán Vard, groom and right hand man to European Show Jumping Champion, Martin Fuchs.
As usual, there are comprehensive reviews of the Longines FEI Nations Cup Series, including the final at Barcelona, where Ireland was victorious; the World Cup finals in Jumping and Eventing and there is an interesting article on the origins of Point to Point racing. The annual l’Année Hippique awards for Best Shows and Best Rider/ Driver are also announced.
