Congratulations to everyone who competed and participated at the Mackey National Hunter Trial Championships on Saturday in Moorefield Kennels.
A wet morning did not deter our hardy Irish Pony Club members or the many volunteers who turned out to ensure that we had a safe and smooth Hunter Trial Championships. More than three hundred competitors competed on Saturday at Moorefield Kennels representing Irish Pony Club Branches from across the country. Congratulations to one and all on another successful Irish Pony Club National Championships.
The Eventing Committee would like to express their sincere thanks to John Roberts and Wexford Hunt Club for the use of their fantastic grounds and for all of their support and assistance over the last few weeks. A huge thank you must also go to Jacinta Reville and Wexford Hunt Branch for all of the hours of work that they put in to ensure that everything was in top class condition for our National Championships. These championships could not proceed without the participation and assistance of all of the volunteers who give up their free time to help. Thank you to all of the tack inspectors, call up stewards, zone stewards, fence judges, starters, parking stewards and to everyone who played a part in this successful championship. Finally, we would like to thank all of the catering volunteers who ensured that all stewards were looked after during the day.
Dr. Marina Brennan and the Eventing Committee would also like to express their gratitude to Mackey for their longstanding support of the Hunter Trial Championships and the Irish Pony Club. Thank you to Rosalind and all of the Mackey team for all of the assistance over the years.
