At just 24, Kildare based rider Camilla Speirs has represented Ireland at 6 European Championships, 4 World Breeder Championships, a World Equestrian Games and was also the youngest event rider to compete at the Olympic Games in London in 2012 – with a horse she produced herself – Portersize Just a Jif.
Camilla’s passion is producing young horses from the early stages of their career, with the hope of competing them on the Irish team at European, World and Olympic championships level in the future.
Camilla not only has the talent to succeed in the sport of eventing, but is also motivated, dedicated and extremely driven. Keeping her horses in peak condition and at the top of their game is extremely expensive and Camilla must rely entirely on sponsors and external funding to pay for training, travelling and general costs to keep the show on the road. Despite the high costs involved with running a yard of event horses, Camilla is eager to put in place the foundations to build and sustain a successful career in the sport. She has 2 extremely exciting young prospects, Lowhill Village at Lyons and BT Border Bandit, both are moving swiftly and successfully through the ranks and she has high hopes that they will compete together at the next Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro 2016.
Over the next two years, Camilla will compete at some of the biggest events in Europe such as Badminton Horse Trials, Blenheim Palace and also hopes to compete for Team Ireland in the Nations Cup series. These events attract high levels of exposure and any potential financial backer who is keen to get behind her and help her succeed on this exciting journey will benefit from this – it’s the Road to Rio!
