TREC Ireland looking for Young Riders!

TREC Ireland is looking for young riders who would like to train with us with a view to representing Ireland at international competitions. The next competition is the EUROPEAN YOUNG RIDERS OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS which is taking place in Belgium in September 2013. A young rider for international competitions must be between the ages of 16 and 21.

TREC is a three phase sport, consisting of orienteering (32kms for Young Riders), control of paces (150m corridor for walk and canter) and obstacles (cross country course between 1 and 5kms in length, consisting of a mixture of jumping obstacles and TREC obstacles). This means that TREC is truly a multi-disciplinary sport which has elements of dressage, cross-country, endurance and western trail riding.

Assessment and training days will be organised and all Young Riders are welcome to try out TREC and subsequently be placed on a long list of riders, who will receive further training with a view to picking a team in 2013. Experience in TREC is not necessary.

Contact Chef d’Equipe Gwen Bastian, at or 087-6578307 for more details or to put your name forward for selection.
