Equestrian teams benefit from FBD fund

IRELAND’s three equestrian teams, who have secured their qualification for the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer, will receive a share of the €50,000 FBD ‘Make a Difference’ Fund, allocated by the Olympic Federation of Ireland this week. The fund will be divided between 16 recipients from different Olympic sports. The funds allocated to the equestrian teams will go towards 25 GPS monitors for the long-listed horses in each of the disciplines.
