The autumn league drew to an exciting finale at Templemore Equestrian Centre where, as you can see from the results below, the Inishowen and Tirconail clubs shared the red ribbons between them. A smaller than usual band of riders and supporters were treated to some superb jump-off rounds and a highly entertaining couple of novelty classes. Ryan McBride showcased his new course designing skills to perfection and reports from the show were very favourable. Things are looking good for the spring league. Congratulations to all the successful riders. As usual the prize giving for the autumn league will take place at the annual dinner dance, which is in the Villa Rose hotel this Saturday, the 30th of November. Tickets are available from Hazel or Louise so give them a bell if you haven’t snagged yours yet. There will be a great range of spot prizes on the night as well as the regular equestrian awards.
For those of you who like a little motivation over the festive season I have the dates of the spring league. With four initial legs at which to earn points, and a final at which double points are available, it gives us all a welcome goal to aim for. Entry fees are being held at the extremely good value rate of E15 per horse for the days jumping. In order to be eligible for prizes you must take part on three of the five days, and your best four scores will count. In other words you have a discard score if you take part every day. Any rider who competes on all five days will be entered in a draw for a fuel voucher in recognition of their club spirit and the effort it takes to drag one’s own and ones’s horses ass out of bed on a Sunday morning!
