H Trials head


A Hunter Trial is a competition to test the ability of the horse and rider to negotiate a course of typical natural fences at a fair hunting pace. Riders compete in pairs or teams of three and there are various levels of competition to suit all ages and levels of ability.

Dr. Marina Brennan, IPC Eventing Chairman and her committee would like to express their sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the 2019 Mackey Hunter Trial Championships.

An event such as this could not take place without the efforts of many volunteers.  Many thanks must be given to Jacinta Reville, Wexford Hunt Branch, Wexford Hunt Club and the Branches of Area 4 for their assistance and extraordinary work in organising and supporting these championships.  Thanks must also be given to our Chief Steward, Peter Ponsonby, Safety Officer, Sam McGuire, the Order of Malta, Rob O' Brien and his team, Mary Keogh, John Roberts, all of our tack inspectors, call up stewards, zone stewards, starters, scorers and fence stewards.  There are too many to name but your efforts did not go unnoticed.  Thank you for continuing to volunteer and give your time freely to assist us with our competitions.  We sincerely appreciate everything that you do.

Finally, we would like to express our thanks to Mackey, who continue to support the Irish Pony Club with the generous sponsorship of wonderful prizes.  The Irish Pony Club has had a long and successful relationship with Mackey and we look forward to continuing to support one another into the future.

A feedback form has been created to gather your thoughts and suggestions for the future.  This is a valuable exercise which we use to evaluate the event, to identify improvements.  We would appreciate it if you could take a moment to complete this very short form.
