Fantastic results from M&W Region members at the 2016 National Winter Finals
Well done to our M&W Region members who all performed brilliantly at the 2016 National Winter Finals at Cavan on the 9th /10th April. Our members were particularly successful in the Preliminary Category 1 Championship taking 4 out of the top 5 placings, with Sille Van der Wijk riding the lovely Kinvara Tan winning the ride off to claim the Championship title - huge congratulations! Cassandra Morris and Redpark Magic were Reserve Champions, Padraig Flannagan riding An Dullahan claimed 3rd and young Finn Curran with Southeast Starlight was 5th (Finn additionally won his section of BD Preliminary 19 on Saturday). Also representing the region in Preliminary Category 1 we had Faye McGrath with Cahernablauhy Girl, Lauren Fahy and Twinfort Guardian, Leah Treacy riding Ringwood Guinness, Caoimhe Curran with Erne Valley Sucellos, Sadhbh O’Toole on Clochanard Lily, Sophie Browne with Wish Upon a Star, and Sinead Heffernan with Liskillen Grey Mist. Well done to you all!
In the Preliminary Category 2 Championship committee member Sinead Donnellan and Eastwood Symphony performed very well to claim 5th place.
Cassandra Morris continued her excellent form over the weekend to take 3rd place in the Novice category 1 Championship, with Padraig Flannagan riding Barnaboy Freeman and Sadhbh O’Toole and Clochanard Lily also performing well.
In a strong Novice Category 2 Championship committee members Nina Reinbold, riding the eye-catching stallion Sandro K owned by David Gray, and Sinead Donnellan riding Eastwood Symphony took 5th and 8th places respectively.
Junior member Caitriona Curran performed excellently with her consistent grey Charlie of Blakehill to take 5th place in the Elementary category 2 Championship. Caitriona’s younger brother Finn also took 7th place in the U25 Championship which was a very large class of 35 competitors.
The atsmosphere at the show was fantastic and members enjoyed being stabled together this year in order to support/help one another. Really well done to all and let’s look forward to the Summer season and Championship! Hope to see everyone at our big show in Mullingar on the 24th where we have outstanding prizes (eg one winner will claim a gorgeous pair of breeches worth 139 euro kindly sponsored by Montar!). Superb prizes to winners of ALL classes, generously sponsored by The Saddle Room, Montar, Toorala Equine Performance, William Hayes Saddle fitter, Horseworld, Kingsborough Horses, CMCC Financial Solutions and Cummins HomeValu.
