Orla and some of her henchmen around the Ramelton area have been working away over the winter season in an effort to bring the sport of TREC to Donegal. The fruits of their labour were rewarded recently with a visit from a TREC Ireland technical delegate who discussed plans to initiate TREC Donegal.
TREC is an international equestrian discipline which originally tested the competency of trekking guides. There are three phases to the competition: Orienteering, Control of Paces, and Obstacles. The sport is special in that adults and children can compete together. Horses and ponies over 13hh are eligible to compete. See the TREC Ireland website for further information on the sport.
TREC Donegal will kick off on the Friday 18 March with an information session in the Milford Inn. If you would like to know more about TREC, come along. On Saturday 19 March there will be a training day in Milford with orienteering followed by obstacle training.
If you would like more information on either of these events please contact Orla on 087 643 2458.
