Cassandra & ‘Gone with the Fairies’ at the water jump

Many thanks to Inishowen RC for running the most recent leg of our Two Phase League at Lenamore EC.  All reports are that although the weather was abissmal for the Advanced Primary cross country phase the day was very enjoyable and the show was run extremely efficiently by Inishowen RC.  Many thanks to all the members from the other clubs who all helped out with fence stewarding on the day and to Trisha Warren for assisting with the results.

Unfortuantely due to the persistently damp weather over the past few weeks Tirconail RC have made the tough decision to cancel their leg of the league for this coming Sunday (28th August) they hope to run another event at the course during October.  The final leg  will be run by Letterkenny RC and will take place in just over two weeks time on Saturday 10th September at Deelside Cross Country just outside Drumkeen – Look forward to seeing you all there and fingers crossed for lots of sunshine !!

  • The Final which was to take place in Deelside on Sunday 18th September has now been re-scheduled for Saturday 10th September due to it clashing with the AIRC National Hunter Trials on the 18th September.

Yesterday saw the start of our Two Phase League in splendid Gordons Bay Equestrian in Carrigart. Dressage was well attended in the newly built sand arena with stunning views overlooking Mulroy Bay . The cross country course was beautifully designed and enjoyed by all the riders on the day .  Well done to all the riders who took part and who completed the course, placings were extremely close in the Advanced Primary and the Intermediate with only one second separating 1st and 2nd places!!

Particular thanks to all the volunteers who came and helped on the day especially the non riders who helped with fence stewarding, entries, dressage scribing etc etc we could not have run the show without you all.

The next leg of the League takes place in just over a month on Sunday 7th August at Mona & Charlies course in Killybegs. Please remember to keep your bib numbers for the next event as this will be your number for the duration of the league.
