Winding down as we all gear up for Christmas

Anyone who didn’t make the dinner dance in the Villa Rose is to be pitied. It was a great night, with top class entertainment laid on, a belly full of laughs provided, great food, excellent DJ and fabulous prizes for all the deserving winners. Top marks to the entertainment committee for a great night.

As always the riding club scene is a little quieter over the coming month as people concentrate on other festivities, but there are a couple of dates to put in your diaries. Firstly Trish Warren is running a charity fundraising show on Saturday 29th (so you get time to recover after your over-indulgence on the 25th) in Twin Towns Equestrian Centre. The monies raised will be going directly to the ISPCA’s Donegal Animal Rehabilitation Centre in Ballyare and your support would be greatly appreciated.

The second opportunity for you is in January, when the Stracomer RC is holding a working hunter clinic in Greenacres Equestrian Centre in Convoy. The clinic will see Antonia Donnelly help riders become acquainted with or improve in the growing sport of working hunter. Details of both events are on the posters below.

At the recent inter-club AGM there was some talk of a possible rideout being organised over the Christmas period by John McDaid and Mickey McHugh. If this comes to fruition I’ll let you know.
