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”
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”
This Friday, the 14th of November, will see us return to Tir Chonaill Equestrian Centre for a replay of the fun that Francis had lined up two weeks ago. This time its Rachel who is setting the challenges but you may rest assured that it will still be suitable for all levels of rider andContinue reading “Fun and some challenges on a Friday evening”
It’s always nice when Hallowe’en falls on a weekend. This time it conveniently ties in with our Friday evening calendar so Francis and Damien are organising an evening of fun and games at Gallaghers arena in Ballybofey. It’s bound to be highly competitive and you have hopefully been in training for the past six months. EvenContinue reading “Hallowe’en Fun Night, Friday 31 October”
The infamous “spoons”, documented by Nadine on Saturday night. See the Gallery for the rest of her collection.
As a club we may not excel at dressage, showjumping or any of the conventional riding club disciplines but our weekend excursion to Bundoran proved yet again that we are world beaters when it comes to the fine art of enjoying ourselves. Louise and Libby delayed the start of the action but Fenway arrived sportingContinue reading “A short trip to a different world”
Two slightly conflicting views on the weather for this weekend. I think we’d happily settle for either, given our recent luck with weekends away!
There are very few positives to be drawn from the shortening days, start of school and deterioration of the weather. There is at least advantage to the onset of autumn however: Our weekend away in Bundoran is just three weeks away! This year’s expedition follows the same format as last year. Damien has booked a self-cateringContinue reading “Bundoran!!”
It’s time for one of our summer evening highlights — a trip to Marina and Enda’s homeplace for some cross country riding and some Hamilton hospitality. Not to be missed! Please let Marina know in advance, if you plan to attend, so that she can plan her catering. You’d hate to be the only oneContinue reading “Cross country evening at Marina & Enda’s, Friday 20 June”
Plenty of members enjoyed a great night out at last year’s Trec fundraiser for the young riders who headed for Belgium to represent their country at the European Junior Championships. Well this year you have a further opportunity to pit your knowledge against the best at Arena 7 on Wednesday 16 April. The young ridersContinue reading “Table Quiz for Trec time again, Wednesday 16 April”
