A total of 29 tests were ridden in this competition, the first leg of our Winter League 2016/2017. Some of the riders had never ridden in a 20x60 arena before, for some this was their first ever dressage test, and for some this was their first ever experience of D-TREC where obstacles had to be negotiated during the dressage test. We would like to thank Cashelane Stud for the use of this beautiful venue overlooking Dunmanus Bay, and we hope we shall be able to return again for another competition at a future date. We would also like to thank dressage judge Pam Franklin and her scribe Angelique; Bastian, Adèle and Ian for judging the TREC obstacles; Nicky for reading so many tests; Tom for photos; Claudia for taking control of the signing in sheets and collecting fees; and all the other helpers and spectators. Last but not least, a big thank you to the riders and their horses who made this event a wonderful one to watch.
Three grades of test were available, Novice, Intermediate and Open. A rider entering one level could choose to ride a lower or higher level out of competition, and a number of our members chose to do so. Our congratulations to the well deserved winners for some riding lovely tests:
NOVICE 1st Maria Mahony (Rocky) 2nd Sheila Winters (Nugget) 3rd Elaine Dolan Crowley (Molly)
INTERMEDIATE 1st Zora Feurer (Lily) 2nd Shirley Squire (Grace) 3rd Margaret Manning (Apachi)
OPEN 1st Gretta O'Mahony (Robin) 2nd Bastian (Flower) 3rd Johanna Connor (Dippy)

We have not yet set a date for the next league event, but we shall update the calendar once a date has been finalised.
