The Dressage night is first on the agenda and is planned for Thursday 23rd February. It will be held at our usual Thursday night haunt at Cavallo.

As well as competitors, we will need some help on the night such as - scribing, adding up the Dressage sheets, working out the results, making teas & coffees and any other little chores needing done to ensure the night runs smoothly! So, if you aren’t wishing to take part, please do come and help and, at the same time, do a spot of socialising.

This is a great opportunity for a bit of fun with another club and getting to know others outside of our own Club.

On Sunday 16 October Club members, Julie, Laura B, Leanne, Alison, Louise and Nanette braved the elements to compete at the NIRC Autumn Championships at Laurelview Equestrian Centre.  Although it wasn’t a successful day as in previous years in terms of placings, everyone did extremely well and had a good day’s craic regardless of the weather and placings.  A Special mention to Louise who did get placed in two very competitive classes - 4th in the Novice class and 3rd in the Elementary class.

Also a BIG thanks to our helpers on the day Stephanie and Paul and supporters Frankie, Anne, Robin and Leonard.
