Cathal has represented his country on numerous occasions at international level and has four gold medals under his belt.
In 2008, he took over the ride of the family’s pony, Master Murrose, previously ridden by his older sister Regina.
In 2012, the pair made the Irish Pony Eventing Team which travelled to the European Eventing Championships in Fontainebleau in France, where they had an excellent performance, bringing home both Individual and Team Gold.
The 2013 season brought lots of new owners and horses including the very talented young mare, Rioghan Rua, owned by Margaret and Frank Kinsella. Cathal and Rua had a very successful year, winning her first ever two star competition at only six years old.
Later that year, Cathal and Rioghan Rua were selected for the Junior Eventing European Championships where they won Team Gold.
