Meath and Tara Point to Point

It’s that time of year again – we would like to welcome members of the Irish Pony Club to participate in the Meath and Tara Point to Point’ Pony Club race at Dowth Hall on Sunday 29th October 2017. The races are kindly sponsored by Redmills.

Ideally we will have two races – 14HH and under and over 14HH to 15.2HH, with 10 runners in each race. If we do not have enough entries, we will combine entries to one race only.

Names of jockeys, ponies, heights and colours would be required two weeks before the race – by 5pm Friday 13th October 2017.

The entry fee is €20 per race per entrant.Races will be run 20 mins after the last race on the race card. Runners will need to make their declarations before the last official race on the race card.

Jockeys will then be called to the parade ring as soon as Winner Alright has been announced for the last race. Jockeys will parade before the race. It would be nice if you could provide a snippet of the jockey / pony’s achievements for the commentary.

I have attached the details of the race for them to read – re colours etc. There will be tack inspection before the race.

It was a great success once again last year, and we hope to build on it for this year.

Any queries, please call Sarah Love on 086 2352055 or email.

Dressage

The pure dressage team of Lexi Kilfeather , Susie Shackleton, Niamh Farrell and Iona Pollock competed at th the British Pony Championship in Cheshire on Sat 19th August. They achieved a great result placing 8th out of 28 teams with Niamh and Iexi both 5th in their arenas. The standard was very high and the result they achieved was all the more credible given that 3 of the 4 sat their leaving cert this year. Well done to the back up team who were so efficient and to Maureen Dwyer for her help. The team did the Irish pony club proud so onwards and upwards. Well done to all
