Big, big well done to members Mickey McHugh (Raferagh Shealainn Nua), John McDaid (Sionnach), Laura Schneider (Chloe Lass) and Trish Warren (Colourado Kid) on their win today at the Team Show Jumping Qualifier at Upper Mace Equestrian Centre in Mayo. They are now through to the Team Show Jumping Championships at the Dublin Horse Show in August. Team reserves are Rachael McCrossan (Batteries Not Included) and Stephen Greene (Indian Puzzle).
The team are ecstatic! They were one of three teams who completed the first round on zero faults and one of two teams who completed the second round on zero faults. That meant a jump-off for team captains Trish Warren and Benbulben’s Fiona Tansey, and Trish clinched it for the club. Brilliant result!

There were fifteen teams in the competition, from eight out of nineteen clubs in the massive Western Region. Travelling costs, it seems, played a big part in the level of entries.
