Irish Eventing Senior High Performance Director Sally Corscadden will guide the team through to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics

Irish Eventing Senior High Performance Director Sally Corscadden will guide the team through to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics after her contracted was extended by Horse Sport Ireland.

Corscadden was appointed Irish Eventing Senior High Performance Director (incorporating the role of Team Manager/Chef d’Equipe) by Horse Sport Ireland in February 2017 – having gained more than 25 years experience as a medal-winning Eventing rider and coach.

At the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon, she guided the Irish Eventing team to the Silver medal – a result which secured Olympic qualification for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Speaking after signing a new two-year contract which takes her up to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Corscadden said: “I would like to thank Horse Sport Ireland for the fantastic support I have had since my appointment in 2017, particularly in the preparations for our successful campaign for the World Equestrian Games this year. Of course, our great results would not have been possible without the huge team effort from all involved including our generous owners, sponsors, the members of Eventing Ireland and the backing of Sport Ireland. It is a great honour to be representing Team Ireland and leading our world class team of coaches, support staff and riders towards Tokyo 2020. Preparations are already underway and we are looking forward to the exciting challenges ahead on the journey towards podium success for Ireland.”
