Talented Askeaton Rider Wins Prestigious TRM Spring Tour 2022
Askeaton’s HIGHLY RATED young rider Robyn Moran kicked off the season in style to win the prestigious 2022 TRM Spring Tour.
The tour began in February with 20 stops across the country. Robyn teamed up with 8-year-old gelding Cushlas Friday, owned by Vera Griffin, of Athlacca, throughout the tour and together, week after week, they delivered consistent results securing them the overall victory.
In a fierce final in Kildare last weekend, the result was played on the last poles jumped to decide the winner.
Limerick rider Robyn also had success on the tour with her other mount Coolminga Inspector Royal taking two wins along the way.
Not only did they win Best Horse/Rider Combination, but Robyn also won Best Rider and Best Young Rider. As part of her award, she will now work with TRM, Europe’s largest manufacturer and distributor of nutritional feeds, supplements and general care products for horses, as their brand ambassador for the next 12 months.
As a brand ambassador, she joins highly accomplished riders such as Cian O’Connor and Greg Broderick.
Robyn is based in Askeaton and produces horses with her father Brian who was a very accomplished jockey himself before hanging up his boots.
Show jumping has been in the Moran family for generations, with his grandmother Jill having competed nationally and internationally, his late grandfather Michael also being well known for producing horses and competing himself.
