A Pony Club Success Story
Irish Pony Club member Bertram Allen & Misty competing for the Island Branch at the All Ireland Pony Club Mounted Games in 2005.
"My sister Grace and I had great times with the Island Pony Club . The games were very competitive but great fun. We all learnt so much about the importance of team work." - Bertram Allen
Bertram followed his passion for riding and pursued a career in show jumping. He soon became one of Ireland's top riders and he is currently ranked number 7 in the world - a fantastic achievement.
The photo above shows Bertram competing on Molly Malone V at the World Equestrian Games 2014 in Caen, France.
Misty continues successfully competing in Pony Club competitions. This photo shows Misty in 2014 with Freddie Ronan (Killinick Harriers Hunt Branch) show-casing their winning Musical Ride display at the Curragh Racecourse. Freddie has cerebral palsy and Misty has been a great help to him.
