ON behalf of the EFI, Col. Ned Campion, Chef d'Equipe of the Irish Olympic and Samsung Super League show jumping teams, today (Friday) appointed Eddie Macken as trainer for these teams. Col. Campion made the appointment in line with the wishes of the senior riders, and it has now been ratified.

Col. Campion said: <<Eddie Macken, with his outstanding record and long experience, will contribute a lot to the team effort. He has been working with the riders since early in the year, and is familiar with the current form.

<<Eddie’s record almost speaks for itself. He is one of the great names in world show jumping,>> he concluded.

He was also Chief Instructor at the Irish Army Equitation School, Dublin and later Commanding Officer. During this period he was Chef d'Equipe to the senior Irish show jumping teams.
