C Test

(For members turning 12 this year or older)


This is an important test because, as well as improving skills and knowledge, it allows members ride the over 12's courses at IPC events.


Training will commence on Friday 6 March at Lucey E. C. Aherla with instructor Norma Lucey.


Training and test will take approximately 8 weeks.


We aim to keep all training sessions to €15/20 but the xc sessions may cost a little more.


Names to Maire on 086 8050831 asap please.




C+ Training and Test

Members must have their C Test and Riding and Road Safety Test in order to undertake their C+ Test.. 


Members wishing to to take the C+ test this year need to give their names to Anne (0868361933)

Members must have their C Test and Riding and Road Safety Test in order to undertake their C+ Test..
We will ask members for €100 at the start of the training sessions to cover the first five weeks (approx). This is to ensure the co-ordinator does not have to collect money each week. 
The C+ test is a significant commitment from trainer, club, members and parents and we ask that members who put themselves forward commit to complete the training. This is to avoid excessive losses for the club.
The C+ training offers members a great opportunity to improve their riding skills as well their stable management skills and great friendships are forged!!
Members wishing to to take the C+ test this year need to give their names to Anne (0868361933).
