After five weeks of lessons at Holy Well Stables in Kilnaspic, Mooncoin with instructor Liz Frayling a competition was held to see all the new skills learned put to the test. Each member did a test of their choosing and were scored by Liz and her scribe Cindy. All of the trainees had improved massively over the course of the 5 weeks thanks to the fantastic instructing and the lovely venue to practice in. First place went to Ellie Mathias (first time dressage rider) with her pony Angel, 2nd Kelly Croke on Delta, 3rd to Keelan Lynch on her new pony Legend, 4th Hazel Barden and Lilly and 5th and best turned out to Amelia Coughlan on Storm. There were some fab prizes sponsored by William Hayes saddlery (numnah), Cindy and Jason of Holy Well Stables (arena hire), Jackie Barden (grooming bag and kit), Sharon Lynch and the Equine Warehouse (grooming equipment, pony treats and baseball caps. The evening was finished off with a lovely windy BBQ and treats provided by all the parents. Thanks to all that attended. A special word of thanks goes to Jason Dunphy and Cindy Wagner for the use of the facilities and for the lovely treats, teas and coffees provided every week and the use of stables for ponies waiting turns. Your kindness was greatly appreciated.
