Congratulations to everyone who competed at the Irish Pony Club Festival in both Pure Dressage and Combined Training. The wet weather conditions on Saturday morning could not dampen the spirits of our competitors. The results from Friday and Saturday are now available to download. We hope you all had a very enjoyable weekend.
Congratulations to Warrington Branch, the 2017 winners of the Vivienne Hilary Cup. The branch were deserving winners and their musical ride to the soundtrack from Beauty and the Beast was brilliant. Louth Hunt Branch followed in second place with Laois Hunt Branch in third.
The 2017 Irish Pony Club Jockey Skills Training Course concluded on Sunday 14th September with the Exhibition Race at Naas Racecourse. The race finished in a dead heat with Robbie Jackson from Shillelagh and District Hunt Branch and Brandon Wilkie from East Donegal Branch inseparable on the line. What better way to end the 2017 RACE Jockey Skills Training programme. Well done to Robbie and Brandon.
