2nd Week South Leinster Combined Training

Sunday saw the second leg ot the SL Combined Training League at Raheen Na Gun. Entries were well up and an early start was helped by the fact we live so close!!
Our horses were all so much better for the outing last week and excelled them selves by all winning a class or in Vipers case two!!
It was a first outing for Deidre Lannigans Fernhill Sea top and with Carol onboard he won the Pure Dressage Test14, though green his Potential was obvious and the Judge Poala Geiger was suitably impressed.
He went on to do a super Test in the Combined Training but a silly knock in the Show jumping just put him out of the placings.
Fernhill Cascade with Sophie Richards on board placed 4th in the Test 7 and WON his combined training, he really is coming into his own now and is on track to win the League in this section.
Shane Power our Junior rider was making his debut on the recent Fernhill purchase Killossery Kassandra. They showed how quickly a partnership has formed between them and placed 3rd in both the Pure Dressage test 32 and the 1.10 combined training. Shane now heads to Portugal with the mare to the Sunshine Tour eventing and hopes this will give him further experience with her before he returns home and appears before the selectors. Competition for a place on the Junior European team this year will be fierce so this trip should give him a head start.
Again Viper showed just how much she has matured over the winter and could not be beaten, winning both her classes by a comfortable margin she is really set up now for the trip to portugal.
Again well done to the Team at Raheen Na Gun, well organised and great facilities made for a good days competition.
