2-Phase league comes down to the wire

This Sunday brings us to Liz and Ryan’s Gordons Bay for the final leg of the North West Riding Clubs 2-phase and dressage leagues. With hot weather and hard ground causing the postponement of the second leg from July (who would have ever thought I’d have to put that sentence in a website post!) we enjoyed a badly needed return to the competitive field at Lenamore on the 16th of September. Our own club ran the event in conjunction with Inishowen and I have to say that it seemed to run like clockwork. The weather played ball and, with Mona supplying sustenance in the form of some superb cake, riders enjoyed a great day. Our club had a fairly small mounted turnout on the day but those of us who were there certainly enjoyed ourselves. Results are below…

The fun kicks off at 11.00 this Sunday, with Bruce Vial taking to the dressage arena first. The cross country begins at 2.30 and promises to provide a fitting finale to this fun league. If you haven’t taken the plunge to compete do try to come for the social outing and to cheer everybody on.

Talking of taking the plunge…welcome to our most recent recruits who are returning to the fold. Lorna, Hilary and Kerrie are all past members who have taken the opportunity to rejoin in time for a winter of fun and games. Hopefully they’ll get as much fun from the club as everyone else who turns out to the many events organised.
