The AIRC National Horse Trials Championships take place this year in Carlow — a highly unlikely destination for our cash-strapped members. That won’t prevent competitors travelling to the nearest qualifying event at Cloncaw Equestrian Centre in Monaghan. Over the years the Border Counties ODE has proved a most enjoyable competition over a great cross country course. Tales are still being told of Nadine’s experience with the Giant’s Teeth and Tanya’s encounter with the water jump!
Entries close on Monday 15 July.
