All of the shows that our club is running this year are legs in various Western Region leagues. Our derby show this weekend and our hunter trials in September are legs of the annual Cross Country & Derby League. Our Spring Show was part of the Spring Show Jumping League and the annual Dressage League. Our Autumn Show will be part of the Autumn Show Jumping League. Some or all of the shows in the North West League are legs of the Spring Show Jumping League.
Given the level of our club’s participation at these events, a good number of our members will have racked up the requisite five attendances which make you eligible to compete for the prizes at the Final of the Western Region Spring Show Jumping League on Sunday 24 July at Tubberbride Equestrian Centre in Sligo. Even if you haven’t qualified, you’re welcome to participate but won’t be eligible for prizes.
The same show hosts the team qualifier for the AIRC National Dressage Championships. While it would be lovely to field a team for the qualifier, most people would find it difficult to imagine travelling to Fethard in Tipperary for the Championships in August.
