IPC Announce New Equestrian Executive Chairman
The Irish Pony Club (IPC) are delighted to announce the appointment of Mr. Michael Essame as chairman of the IPC Equestrian Executive Committee.
Mr. Essame was elected by postal ballot in early December. He takes over the position from Mrs. Barbara Micks who held the role for the last six years. Michael is a forestry graduate from Trinity College Dublin. He has acquired a vast knowledge of horses by being a big support to his wife, Celine and her Newstown prefix. He helped his late daughter Jenny, as transporter and groom advisor in pony club and equestrian activities. Michael continues this tradition with his grandson Gordon, who is a keen triathlete and rugby player. Michael was Area 9 Representative for the last 5 years and would have been most seen, taking photographs which he has a passion for.
We would like to wish Michael the very best as he takes up the position in the New Year.
