Eventing Ireland for Amateurs

The club has recently received information about Amateur Eventing Classes at Eventing Ireland events. The Amateur classes are suitable for riding club members of Intermediate standard and higher. The three classes are:

Amateur EI90 – suitable for Intermediate Riders
Amateur EI100 – suitable for Advanced Intermediate Riders
Amateur 1 Star – suitable for Open and Advanced Open Riders

You do not have to be a member of Eventing Ireland to compete — you can simply purchase a day-ticket. Full information in the Eventing Ireland flyer: Amateur Eventing

Entries open for Border Counties ODE qualifier

There are very few one-day events within reasonable range of our club’s territory so the  Border Counties Riding Club’s qualifier for the AIRC National Horse Trials Championship — a comparatively short drive away in Monaghan — always proves popular with our members.

The schedule has now been published and entries close on Friday 29 June for the event which takes place on Sunday 8 July.

Travel to Tattersalls

Lack of interest has led the Pony Club to shelve their plans to run a bus to the cross country day at Tattersalls on Saturday 2 June. Don’t despair though — luckily for us, Roisin McGee’s family are running a 30-seater bus to the event and  you can book with them instead. The cost is €10 a head and the pick-up is in Letterkenny.

Contact Roisin on 087 918 0008, if you’d like to book a seat.

Tattersalls opportunity

East Donegal Pony Club are organising a group visit to Tattersalls on Saturday 2 June, the exciting cross country day in this international eventing fixture. Luckily for all of us, the trip is open to non-pony-club-members. Here’s the deal:

Ticket prices will be no more than €12.00 for an adult or €5.00 for kids aged 13–17. Kids under 12 enter for free. Tatts have said that they will give us a reduced price for a group – possibly a 2-for-1 offer – so I can’t give you a final quote yet. Coach prices vary according to numbers but will be no more than €18.00 per person. The trip is open to non-club members, so if you have friends or family you want to bring let them know, but priority will be given to our own members and their families. Please let Rachel (086 161 7087) or Stella (085 828 4306) know if you are interested and roughly how many of each age group would be with you.
