News from our latest Events
There's no denying 2020 was a different and difficult year for the club but as soon as restrictions allowed we were out there training and learning with our ponies. Here's hoping 2021 will give us plenty of opportunity to do the same.
Funday / Sunday Rally
Another great training rally with Elena FitzGerald in Mid-November. One a miserable November day we all managed to get out and about, learning and having fun with our ponies.
Halloween Spooktacular Rally
Over Halloween some of our members got into the spirit of the season but also learnt lots at a rally with Elena FitzGerald.
C Test Success for our Members
After a false start with our C Test Training in the spring our members came at it again in the Autumn. Across September the members trained hard and they successfully completed their test in early October. Many thanks to our trainer Norma Lucey and examiners. Well done to all of them.
We also had members who worked hard toward and successfully completed the C+ test. Some of these members had also started the training in the spring but were determined to complete. Training took place in September and all the Muskerry members including one from Carbery were successful. Many thanks to their trainer Ellen Beardsley and their examiners Mary Allen and Marie Hennessey (who also kindly hosted us). Well done all.
B Test Success
Despite Covid and intermitant lockdowns our member Nicola Kiernan managed to complete her B test training over the summer and successfully completed her test in early September. Well Done Nicola (and Marty!) - What a great achievement
3 Day Clinic
All our club members were so disappointed when our annual Pony Club Camp could not happen in early July. It is the highlight of our club year and was sorely missed. We did however manage to have fun at our three day clinic later in July. We trained across two days and did a practice one day event on the final day. Lots of learning and fun and many thanks to Lucey Equine Centre who hosted us.
Clare Pony Club Winter Triathlon
Congrats to Diarmuid O'Halloran for coming 5th in the Clare Pony Club Winter Triathlon. Well done also to Ciarán and Siobhán who also both flew the flag for Muskerry.
E, D and D+ Test
Everyone's pony club journey begins with their D test (our even younger members begin with their E test). Our 2020 candidates are happy to pass their test in early March. Well done everyone.
