Message from Area 17 Rep, Liz Lowry:

We have had an invitation for our members to visit the Equine College at Enniskillen and spend a day there.

This will take place on 13 April and will be open to members 14 years and over.

This will be an active visit and members will be shown Racing, Breeding, Sport Horse sections. There is a new gallop

There are 2 simulators, one for race riding and one for position, balance etc.,
which corrects riders position, hands etc., on a screen and it a very advanced training tool. So it should be of interest to members.

Ideally 10 members would be sufficient and lunch provided.

This would be a real eye opener to what we in N.Ireland have to offer students interested in careers and horses in general.

It will be on a first come, first served basis and will be a very worthwhile day.

Please contact Liz on the numbers below to register your interest.

Regards

Liz
