This weekend sees many of us head to Eglinton Equestrian Centre to face the challenges of the Inishowen Riding Club summer show, which incorporates the regional dressage qualifier. We have a great entry from the club, with two dressage teams and a number of individual dressage entries. In addition to the dressage there are the usual range of jumping classes AND a training class at each height category. If this show doesn’t cater for you then none ever will! Lets see a big turnout of supporters from Letterkenny as well as the actual competitors. Our dressage teams are as follows:
Vera, Rachel (Merlin), Cliff (Shadow) and Tanya
Francis, Rachel (Sally Clover Supreme), Kellie
Our individual dressage riders are Lorna, Jayne, Eimear, Suzanne, Leo and Marina. Who would have thought we’d be fielding two teams and six individual riders for dressage?!
The following weekend, the 19th of May, sees us field a team for the team show-jumping qualifier at Tubberbride Equestrian Centre in Collooney, Co. Sligo. The final of the team show-jumping is held at the RDS as part of the Dublin Horse Show, and is one of the most hotly contested competitions of the year. Our team this year is comprised of Rachel, Cliff, Francis and Shauna (Boyle, for those of you who don’t know her!!). The qualifier is always a really good days sport and the more supporters present on the day the better. We really need to get Letterkenny Riding Club flags made….
But let’s not jump the guns and let us enjoy this weekends fun and games, where all our club/team mates will be out supporting the neighbors at their summer show (and hopefully whipping their asses, though if we don’t it’s only cause we don’t want to peak too soon!)
See y’all on Sunday
