Showjumping Event Training

Our over 12 members were back in Belline last Friday night (14th March) for showjumping training with Mark Davern. These training nights are of great benefit to all the members, as they prepare for the event season. Great fun was had and all the members can’t wait for next weeks training on 29th March starting at 6.00pm. Special thanks to Richie Wall for organising these training nights.

Trip To McKee Barracks

Our trip to McKee Barracks on Wednesday was a great success. A 7.00pm start on the school Easter holidays is never easy but our members were excited to get going to Dublin and they all really enjoyed the day. The members were given a guided tour of the barracks and then got to see some of Ireland’s top riders in action. A stop over in McDonalds on the way home went down well. A very special thanks from all the members to John Brennan, who organised such a great trip.

Inter Club Showjumping

Well done to all members who took part in last Fridays inter club showjumping competition in Ballinmona.
