Spring News

Now that there is a stretch in the evenings we are looking forward to getting out more and planning some spring Pony Club activities.

Here are some dates for your diary

18th February
Kilkenny Foxhounds Children’s and Newcomer’s meet
12pm Desart Wood, Cuffesgrange
All are welcome and the jumps will be optional.
Any enquiries to Catherine on 087 814 0503

23rd February (and subsequent Fridays)
Showjumping training at Grennan, Thomastown
For those who haven’t come to one of these evenings, why not give it a try?
No matter what your level or ability, Amy will have you making progress from the start!

3rd March
Cross country and Gallops day at Bramblestown, Gowran
A chance to improve your cross country skills over some natural fences and around the all-weather gallop.
We will split into two groups and keep the beginners separate from the more advanced riders so this day is suitable for proven XC performers as well as those making their debuts.

4th March
North Kilkenny Winter Triathlon
An ideal warm up for Minimus competitors and even for those who are looking ahead to next year.
It’s a 2 minute swim and a 1km run – why not give it a go.

30th March
Inter-Branch Team Showjumping at Ballinamona Equestrian Centre
Heights: 50cm-60cm, 70cm-80cm, 90cm and 1 metre
We would love to get some teams of four together but if not, individuals are always welcome to participate. It’s always a great day – hopefully there will be Easter eggs for all again this year!

Cross Country training
We will also be having XC training days at Ballintober and The Field.
Dates for these are yet to be confirmed.

Pony Club sweatshirts
We will be making an order to get some of theses in time for our first rally so please let Claire (claire@goodad.ie or 086 853 5115) know if you need one. There are two sizes: Under 12 and Over 12.
