There was a lot of calendar planning at our recent club meeting — a well-attended and sociable gathering at Tir na nOg. This Friday we go to Ramelton for a bowls evening with Cecil and Tanya. Two days later, one of the highlights of the coming quarter is undoubtedly the Audrey Jacob Northwest Team Challenge on Sunday, 24Continue reading “Calendar in a nutshell”
This time two weeks from now, let’s hope we still have two glorious cups safely locked in the Letterkenny trophy cabinet!

So near and yet so far… Our gallant team riders finished a memorable third in the RDS qualifier in Sligo this afternoon while our Donegal Gaeltacht neighbours again set sail for Dublin in August. Congratulations everybody on a very, very fine effort. We’re proud of you. Go Donegal!
Better late than never: The very, very best of luck to Anne, Damien, Shauna, Leo, Cormack, Marina, Lisa and Keary in Sligo today. It’s the annual tilt for a spot at the RDS team show jumping championships in August. Fingers crossed…
Despite a cracking effort from Leo, Anne, Cormac and Damien, a few rolled poles and unlucky time faults kept us out of the running at today’s team qualifier at Tubberbride. Fielding their usual horde of teams, Benbulben were the only club with a team to finish on a zero score. Tynagh took the wildcard spot andContinue reading “No joy at qualifier as Benbulben head for RDS”

Last week’s club meeting painted a very rich picture of competitive and non-competitive activity for members — most of it on our doorstep. It’s difficult to find space for our regular Friday activities in a calendar over-flowing with shows and events. In summery, this is what we have to look forward to: National Hunter Trials,Continue reading “Non-stop riding club activity for coming months”
