All-Ireland Hunter Trials

Lisgarvan House, Co. Carlow provided the picturesque setting for this year’s All-Ireland Hunter Trials Inter-schools competition. Yet again D.C.C. Equestrian Team were in the ribbons with a fantastic fifth place from Sophie O’Connor in the senior individuals, on her horse TJ. This is a huge achievement as the class had over 150 competitors.  Bathed in sunshine, the D.C.C. Equestrian Team arrived in style armed with their new school numnahs. Their six horses were immaculately turned out-so much so that the announcer complimented some of our competitors over the PA system. After a very early start, our senior team was first to take to the course at break-neck speed with Colm Kiernan in front on his beloved Patch, Patrick Lally in the middle on new steed Lily and Clare Meehan on her trusty mount Buster. The team were very unfortunate to have an elimination at the third last fence but all horses and riders returned safely to fight another day.  Both Colm and Patrick had fantastic times in the individuals but a few penalties robbed them of a place. Georgie Benson had a very stylish round on the beautiful Otto to go clear, while last but by no means least, Reece O’Connor gave a fantastic display of determination and courage on Charlie in the Junior Individuals.  A fantastic day was had by all and Ms. Solan and Ms. Curran would like to acknowledge the support and commitment shown by both students and parents involved in the D.C.C. Equestrian Team.
