Donegal Trec Autumn Training Series


Donegal Training League Continues under Blue Skies.


The week started off with dark sky filled with rain but by the time

Sunday came around we were treated to a fine autumn day for the PTV

and CoP training competition at Templemore Equestrian Centre.


The youngest riders were first to tackle the course of 16 obstacles.

Twins Jade and Kelly McClafferty must have been practicing since their

introduction to the obstacles a week earlier at our event at

Ballinacross Farm. Kelly and her pony Lady scored an excellent 110

points to secure first place in the section while Jade and Monty came

second on 89 points. New riders for Donegal TREC were Lucy Boal and

Luke Porter. Lucy and Foxy rode a steady round in good style to

secure third place while Luke and Snowy who were not far behind in the

points and took fourth place. The under 15 riders are full of talent

and no doubt their names will be coming up in the reports of many

future competitions.


In the adult novice section the first place honours went to Ciara

Atcheson riding Bama with a score of 104 points. Rosemary Fisher and

Marina Hamilton tied on 96 points to share second place with their

respective mounts Maryann and Comical Errors. Just 2 points behind,

Aileen Fullerton claimed third prize while Georgie McDaid and Blue

followed in fourth place.


The young riders (aged 16-21) once again provided very high scores

with Lisa Moore and Jo Dazzler clenching first place on 154 points.

Clodagh Barry and Mervyn rode a great round to finish on 147 points

and second place. Barry also introduced her younger pony, Dusty, to

the obstacles with some skillful riding and securing third place with

a score of 94 points.
