Mid Term Mayhem!

Road SafetyGreat to see so many members out and about this past week taking part in such a diverse range of activities. We had several in action at Tinahely RC’s Hunter Trials at Coolboy where Sean McN and Millie O’L did very well to place in the novice and open singles classes respectively. There was strong interest from the younger female members in our side saddle demonstration session at Ballyvolan featuring Shona C in full habit, top hat and veil. Also at Ballyvolan this week 9 of our C test holders, Emily, Cliodhna, Caoimhe, Jane, Eleanor, Lucy, Mollie, Robert and Sean passed their road safety test – well done to you all. Army Equitation 1On Thursday we brought a mini bus load for a very informative visit to the Army Equitation School, a bit of shopping in TRI and later to the Irish National Stud.
