JESSICA KURTEN will be the sole Irish competitor at the FEI World Cup Show Jumping Final in Gothenburg, which begins on April 13 and finishes on Easter Monday (April 16).

Currently ranked as the World No.2 female rider, Jessica, from Cullybackey in Co. Antrim, will carry the Irish flag on her own, following the decision by Ireland¹s other World Cup qualifying rider, Peter Charles, to pull out of the Gothenburg Final.

Due to Foot and Mouth restrictions, Charles was stranded in the Netherlands when the disease broke out there, and was unable to prepare his horses for the gruelling demands of the Final.

Jessica Kurten (formerly Chesney) is one of just 28 top riders from around the world who qualified for Gothenburg.

The Final will be televised live on Eurosport at 4.30 p.m., Irish time, on April 16, and results will be available from the following websites:
