The one recurring comment at Greenacres today was “Isn’t it great to get back out again?” Everyone was delighted to get the season up and going again, though for some of us the long interval between this show and our last time over coloured poles exacted a penalty. Letterkenny was represented by Rachel, Francis, Cliff and Marina, with Jenny and Enda supporting on the sidelines and capturing valuable video footage of some interesting riding techniques. Full results will follow but as a synopsis I can tell you that Cliff rode Shyla into second place in the advanced intermediate, beating Rachel and Merlin but having to bow to Stephen Greene’s superiority on the day as he clinched first spot for Tirconaill. In the intermediate class Francis and Bonzo were very unlucky to have the final fence down in the first round, denying them a spot in a very competitive jump-off. Marina made up for many weeks out of the saddle by clinching third spot on London Jen. With two weeks to the league final, and double points available on the day, the whole league table will be completely open for the taking.
Watch Rachel, Marina and Francis jumping in the following videos. Sorry Cliff…no video evidence available of your super jump-off on Shyla.
