Get booted and suited. The season is kicking off.

At a very productive meeting of the North West riding clubs the dates and format of the Autumn league were nailed down, as well as the (almost certain) date for our annual awards night and dinner dance.

The autumn league will consist of just three legs, so no chance of it getting stale this year, with the points from all three legs counting in the final reckoning. The final will not have double points, meaning that anyone who can’t make the final for any reason is still in with the same chance as those who miss one of the first two legs. Obviously the aim of the game is not to miss a leg at all but life does have a tendency to get in the way at times. There will be rosettes presented for first to third at each leg, with the rosettes and prizes for the overall league placings being presented at our dinner dance. The first leg will be in Templemore on the 21st Oct, followed by the second leg in Twin Towns Equestrian Centre on the 11th Nov and returning to Templemore for the final leg on the 25th Nov.

Strip off your boots and get on your suits for the 1st Dec. Mona, ably assisted by Liz, Hazel and Louise, are undertaking to organise the event and details will follow shortly.
