Leinster Dressage - Summer Season Concludes

Published 10/09/2018

From the end of April through until the beginning of September, nearly 800 tests were ridden at Leinster Dressage shows, from Mini Trailblazers right up to Grand Prix.

With the final show of the summer season on 2nd September, the Summer League has concluded with very worthy winners at each level. Competition was hot and riders showed great determination and dedication right through to the last centre lines. Leinster Chairperson Marguerite McSweeney was kept busy through the day of the final show presenting the league prizes after the conclusion of each level.

We would like to express our gratitude to The Curragh Equine Hydrotherapy Spa run by Fiona and William Hayes for generously donating vouchers for our league final. This is a great facility to refresh horses’ legs after a tough period of competition or for rehabilitation purposes. The Hayes’ expert care leaves horse owners confident that their horse is in the very best hands.

Massive thanks also go to everyone who rows in to make everything work:- the riders, volunteers, Judges and Committee members, all working together to ensure successful shows.

Thanks also to Aisling O’Hanlon of Equestrian Antics for supporting everyone with fantastic photos from every show.
