It’s a wrap

The annual grand finale of the region’s riding club calender is the dinner dance and this years offering did not disappoint. Organised by Hazel, Louise and Mona, and held in the central location of the Villa Rose in Ballybofey, the meal was good, the awards ceremony ran like a well schooled horse and the music kept the die-hard dancers on the floor till the wee hours. Congratulations to the Inishowen club on winning Club Of The Year…next year we’ll just have to pull out all the stops to get our hands on the shield (again).

There aren’t a lot of photos from the night but Marina was good enough to grab a few…


While we’re on the subject of wrapping up a year in pictures I’ll take the chance to reiterate congratulations to our own club member of the year, Francis McNicholl and club horse of the year, Sally Clover Supreme (aka Shyla). Both worthy winners. As you can see from the photos Shyla was unable to attend the awards ceremony but her sidekick, Cliff, was willing to do the honors and assured us the trophy would live on Shyla’s mantelpiece for the coming year.
