It’s a long haul from Lenamore to Tubberbride but Cormac and Charlotte made the journey together with some Lenamore-based members of the Inishowen club to compete at Benbulben Riding Club’s Spring Show. Although he wasn’t in the ribbons on the day, he successfully qualified for the Masters Final and looks forward to his date with destiny in Mullingar. Congratulations to Patricia Warren of the Gaeltachts who won the qualifier.
Qualification came at a price after Cormac and Charlotte took a nasty fall in front of a jump in the deep going of the warm-up arena. Happily horse and rider survived to tell the tale but both will be nursing sore muscles and bones for a few days to come. Let’s hope they’re fully recovered in time to do themselves justice at our Derby & Dressage show next Sunday!
