Interclub Dressage - Capall RC v Gransha RC

We had a fantastic night at our first Interclub dressage competition. Many thanks to Gransha RC for coming and taking part, great fun was had by all. Massive thanks to Judge Vanda Robinson for all your positive feedback and to scribe Jim. Thanks to all who organised the night and to all helpers who made the night run so smoothly, without you it just would not be possible to run such nights. Well done to all riders and horses who were perfectly turned out for the occasion. Congratulations to Capall team 'The Half Past Its' for winning the Prelim section and to team Gransha 'The Half Pass-ables' for winning the Novice Section.

Capall RC Visit to Thompsons Feeding Innovation Mill

On Thursday 26 January 2017 our Club Members took the rare opportunity to leave the horses at home and take a tour round the Thompsons Feeding Innovation Mill.  A massive thank you to Raymond Bready, Alli Matthews and Declan Cullen for the invite and the vast amount of knowledge we received.   It was a fantastic opportunity to see behind the scenes and was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
