Catching up on what’s been happening on our Friday nights

A big thanks to our hosts for recent Friday nights. Not only did they do the organising and look after us very well on the evening — they have also filed the following reports of what everybody got up to: Flatwork at Hazel’s “Four of us were ready willing and kind of able to go for the first sessionContinue reading “Catching up on what’s been happening on our Friday nights”

Friday evening activities continue this week with Kelda in St Johnston

No reports have yet trickled through about our recent Friday evening lessons at Hazel’s arena with Patricia Warren. Surely this information vacuum will soon be filled by one of the club detectives? In the meantime we can look forward to a lesson with Kelda this coming Friday night at Marina and Enda’s home in St Johnston.

Friday evening activities continue apace

While the Northwest League receives all the limelight at this time of year our Friday night activities continue to attract a stalwart following.

It’s time to build on a great start to the Northwest League and reach greater heights this coming Sunday at the second leg. We had a marvelous day at the season-openingContinue reading “Tús maith, leath na hoibre: Now for Round 2 of the Northwest League”

Social year off to a flying start at cracking bowling evening in Arena 7

There was a huge turn-out for our annual dinner and bowling night last Saturday at Arena 7. Along with all the usual suspects, the chattering tables included newer members like Lisa Moore and Micháel McClafferty. These two alone are a wonderful example of the diversity of our membership. We come in all shapes and sizes,Continue reading “Social year off to a flying start at cracking bowling evening in Arena 7”

Plenty to look forward to between now and the derby

With Anne taking over in the Secretary’s hot seat, last Thursday’s club meeting was well attended and very productive. Significant annual events such as the Northwest Team Challenge, Flowerhill, Carrickfinn and our summer Derby & Dressage show were chiseled into their slots, allowing the rest of the calendar to fall into place around them. We have aContinue reading “Plenty to look forward to between now and the derby”

January sees club life rekindled

Our riding club years have a comfortably familiar pattern. We recover slowly from the break over Christmas and New Year (bravely interrupted this time by Inishowen’s show) and gradually start setting the mounted wheels in motion to get us to the first big day of the season, the first leg of the NWL on SundayContinue reading “January sees club life rekindled”
