Highly enjoyable day at Inishowen’s show

With weather a great deal better than forecast the odds were already good that Inishowen Riding Club’s show at Lenamore would prove successful. The event was well supported by Letterkenny members and they departed with their fair share of ribbons.

Particularly in dressage, our riders did us proud. Vera took AP honours and Nadine and Cormac dominated the Advance Intermediate division, while Hazel and Louise placed at primary level. These two novice riders also flew the flag with honour in the jumping arena with Hazel finishing in the top spot and Louise taking the green ribbon.

Reports tell that Francis and Zak had an enjoyable day although they had a pole or two down, while Leo took third in a great jump-off for the Intermediate competition. That class was taken by newly-returned Erica on Britney, now of course riding for Inishowen. There’s no final report of the higher level classes in yet but doubtless Nadine, Damien and Cormac represented us with their usual standard of performance.

Thanks to everybody in the Inishowen club for providing such a good day’s sport. Well done to everybody who competed or who turned up on the day to support our riders.
