We are running C Test training across the month of June and are hoping to join a neighbouring club for the the test in early July. If you are interested in the C test please get your names to Anne by Friday June 4th.

The C test is important as it allows members compete at IPC cross country competitions. 

C Test - Riding confidently with a secure seat. Can be taken in the year the rider turns 12 years or later.

C+ Training & Test

Later in the summer we may consider running our C+ Training and test. As we ran a C+ test in the Autumn of 2020 it is possible that we will wait until Spring 2022 to run our next C+ training and test.

C+ Test - Confident riding with leg yeilding and turns on the forehand. Can be taken in the year the rider turns 14 or later.

B Test upwards

B, B+, H, and A tests are co-ordinated either regionally or nationally. Muskerry have put forward a number of candidates for the senior tests (B, B+ and H). We wish all the candidates the best of luck with their preparation over the coming months.

Summer Camp

We are planning to run our summer camp from June 30th to July 2nd this year. We would like to thank Eddie McDonagh and his family for hosting this year's camp at their farm in Bealnamorrive.

Registration for our 3 day Summer Camp June 30th - July 2nd is now open on It's Plain Sailing. As the number of members attending camp decides so much for us, we kindly ask for registration to be completed no later than Monday 14th June.

Summer camp is such an important time for members to make new friends and receive expert tuition from IPC registered Instructors. Costs are €160 for 1st child, €155 for second child and €150 for third child. Price includes lunch and refreshments each day.
