KELLS man Gary Marshall has guided the GAIN Irish Under-16 Pony Show Jumping team to GOLD in the recent European Championships in Hungary!
In against the best from GB, the Netherlands, France, Sweden and Germany, the Chef d' Equipe's trusty team fought back to win in dramatic fashion in Kaposvar.
It was a performance Horse Sport Ireland Level 3 coach Gary will never forget.
“These kids were unbelievable. I told them at the start of this week that their name was on this Gold Medal," Gary told Guardian Sport.
“This was their time but they had to fight for it to make it happen. It was very tight throughout the competition but they stuck to their guns."
The ace High Performance Coach said he always knew they were mentally strong.
“I told them they were the best five riders in Europe and they believed in themselves," he said.
