Monday social media roundup … that sounds a little funny, eh? Ah well, we did it! We made it! Unlike some other sports (RIP dressage freestyle) WEG eventing is complete! Let’s take a one more peek around social media on this final day of competition as we celebrate the teams that found themselves victorious.
Forty years after John Watson won individual silver at the World #Eventing Championships in Lexington in 1978 his son @watsoneventing wins a team silver medal @tryon2018. A first in Irish eventing, never achieved before. @FEI_Global @TeamIRLEq #equestrian #Tryon2018 #Ireland pic.twitter.com/CnwWp7fTRa

🇬🇧🇮🇹🇫🇷 Great Britain, Ireland, France. Fitting that my two countries of citizenship should come first and second, and that France, my mother's place of residence, should also be in the medals! A great day for European eventers! Stupid emojis don't include an Irish flag, so I got as close as possible.
