It’s been a busy and successful 2 weeks for the Oriels. Well done to everyone who competed in Cavan and Barnadown. We had 2 teams qualify for the John Ledingham in Cavan which is fantastic for such a small club! Oriel Angels (Molly, Jane , Victoria & Jessica) were 1st place in Cavan, Wild Runners (Alvin, Megan, Sean & Michael) were 6th!! And well done to The Oreos (Orla, Rachel, Cora & Ciara) who competed in John Ledingham & combined training.
Congratulations to everyone who qualified in the Classic in Cavan. We have qualifiers from the 1m, 1.10m and 1.20m classes consisting of Victoria & Alvin McElwaine, Jane McClean & Sean Bird. Victoria won the 110m & 120m!! I would also like to congratulate Jane McClean who came 1st in the intermediate combined training at Cavan and is going to represent our club and area 7 in the RDS. (Jane rides dressage fri 8th 5-6pm in Ring 1 & sat 9th 7pm show jumping Ring 2. This is a great achievement for our club and we hope to see some of you down there to support her.

Finally at the Barnadown Championship The Oriel Angels were In the ribbons at 6th place & The Wild Runners were 6th in Horsemanship!!! What an amazing Club we have, you should all be very proud of your achievements!!!
A special thank you goes out to Linda Fahey who has trained us all year & was with us in Cavan & Barnadown. Linda is a brilliant coach & all the wins are a credit to her!

It iswonderful to see such a great interest in XC training in Area 7. All riders who applied before the closing date have been accommodated. However, due to high numbers of riders wishing to take part, we have had to extend the training to include Monday 21st May with kind permission from Sally.


Please arrive in plenty of time for your lesson to be ready for you allocated time. Riders must be correctly attired in their club pony club sweatshirts, stock or pony club tie, skull hat (no peaked hats), level 3 body protector and clean horses/ponies and tack. It is not necessary to plait.
