Special congratulations to our club members who were placed – Mickey McHugh 1st Intermediate Class, Liz Potter 2nd Adv Primary and Lawrence Smyth 5th Adv Primary.




A great day was had by all at the Regional Qualifiers for the RDS Team Showjumping yesterday at Tubberbride Stables in Sligo.  In a hotly contested competition of 21 teams our club had fielded two teams – a Green Team and a Yellow team,  joining teams from our neighbouring Donegal clubs Letterkenny, Tirconail and Stracomer.

At the half way interval both teams had jumped well over the strong 11 fence track and were both in a strong positions with the Yellow Team, Shaun(Santa Cruz Lady), Ryan(Bud), Emily (Boysie) & Laura(Chloe lass) on a 0 score, and the Green Team Mickey(Simply Mitch), Ryan(Clyde), Cassandra(Bail me out) & Rudy(Boysie) on 4 faults.  Going in to the second half saw eight teams start on a 0 score, our Yellow Team were unlucky and picked up a further 8 faults,  the Green Team were clear and remained on 4 faults.  There were very few clear rounds in the second half  and the arena crew were kept busy lifting poles,  0 scores quickly vanished for five of the Teams leaving only three Teams on 0 and a nailbiting three way jump off quickly ensued between Corrib Grey, Springmount Gold & Corrib White.   Our Green Team on 4 faults took 4th place , followed by Corrib Gold in 5th and neighbours Tirconail Team 2 in 6th, our Yellow Team finishing just outside the placings on 8 faults.  A huge well done to all our 7 riders who did fabulous yesterday over a very testing track.

A huge thank you to all at Benbulben Riding Club for running a flawless event yesterday your hard work is very much appreciated.

Many thanks to all at Letterkenny Riding Club for hosting such a superbly run show yesterday in Eglinton Equestrian Centre.  Our Teams did exceptionally well in both Dressage and Showjumping Competitions, placing as follows-


2nd- ‘Dutch Courage’    Liz, Rudy, Mickey & Cassandra

3rd- ‘Hot 2 Trot’     Ciara, Shaun, Emily, Cassandra


1st- ‘The Half Passables’    Ciara, Cassandra, Trisha & Emily
