Well done to all EAPC competitors who competed at the Irish Pony Club Championships.
Charlotte D competed in the Open Championship lying first after dressage with a terriffic score of 17.2 and finishing 1st overall in the Open class.
The novice Team of Louise, Rachael C, Jessica and William finished a very credible 9th out of over 50 Novice Teams, with all four riders clear over the Tattersalls course. Louise was third in her arena after dressage and Rachael C was first equal after dressage. Rachael was also first equal overall in her area Special mention must be made of Jessica who was the youngest rider out of almost 200 novice competitors and was clear in both showjumping and cross-country
Rachael Coulter was 4th in the Irish PC Combined Training Intermediate competition in Dublin
Well done to everyone who took part in the Home Championships at Tullymurray this year. A wonderful 27 riders represented our club this year. All of which were turned out to a very high standard and rode in a professional manner with on the whole a good team spirit. A special mention should be made for our winning 75cm team of Tara, Sam, Rachel McC and Charlie and our 2nd placed 50cm team of Kerri, Alex, Rory and Katelyn. Individually we had two winners. Tara won her class by over 7 marks and Emma B won the assisted 50cm class on PJ managing to navigate a tricky course.
