Good Friday Easter Egg Hunt

Even though the weather could have been better all 40 members who attended the Easter Egg hunt at Archallagan Plantation had a fabulous time. Cheryl Curphey organised the hunt and all enjoyed it from senior members right down to our youngest members. Everyone brought a packed lunch and ate it at the picnic/play area in the plantation which is a lovely spot – really sheltered and lots for the children to do.

Mounted Rally 19th March – Garran Beg at the Glebe and Seniors at GGH

Rally 190317 2 Rally 1903171

There was an excellent entry for this rally both at the Glebe and at GGH. Cheryl Curphey instructed at the Glebe where the younger members all tried a bit of ‘synchronised’ riding which they all enjoyed. Senior members all looking very smart,  thoroughly enjoyed a show jumping rally with Suzanne Corlett where they  received excellent instruction over a simple but demanding exercise involving just five fences but requiring skill and positive riding to complete.
