Tattersalls International Horse Trials to Host FEI Nations Cup

 

The Tattersalls International Horse Trials and Country Fair 2017 has been awarded the Irish leg of the FEI Nations Cup™. Taking place from the 31st May – 4th June, Tatts 2017 will once again host 8 competitions including the George Mernagh Memorial CIC03* - NC Class.

2017 will be the 6th running of the FEI Nations Cup™.  Teams compete in 10 events across 10 countries. 2016 saw Germany take the title with the UK in second. Ireland has yet to win the series.

Roger Casey, Managing Director, Tattersalls Ireland said “We are honoured to have been awarded the Irish leg of the FEI Nations Cup ™.  In 2016 53% of Tattersalls competitors were from overseas and 127 countries watched the competition on our live streaming. We hope hosting the FEI Nations Cup ™ will encourage more overseas entries making it an exciting spectacle for visitors while boosting the profile of the event internationally.”
