Report on Leinster Members successes at The National Championships

Published 08/09/2015

Leinster members came out in force to compete at The National Championships in Cavan at the weekend. All combinations had to have attained a qualifying score to compete, so to be eligible to compete was an accomplishment in its self. It was a first time for some members and as such a huge learning curve not only for the riders but also for their horses, and even though some riders may feel they didnít perform to their best or achieve the percentage they would have liked, remember that the Nationals do bring with it, a big party atmosphere which undoubtedly effects our horses and ourselves as riders. Classes had record entries and standards were high, whatever your thoughts on the championships: you and your horse will have learned from the experience and as such will come out again next year better armed by that experience. Congratulations to all who competed regardless of your results but in particular the following National Championship Winners:

Elementary Category 1 Champion Tara Hayes
Elementary Category 2 Champion Marguerite MC Sweeney
Medium Champion Heike Holstein
Advanced Medium Champion Heike Holstein
PSG Champion Judy Reynolds ( over seas rider )
