Festive fun with Kilkeel Riding Club

KILKEEL Riding Club held a fun day of pony games and show jumping recently at the Gamekeepers Lodge Equestrian and Activity Centre. Great fun was had by everyone and it was the perfect way to start the Christmas holidays.

Two teams participated in the Mini games with the Santa Devils (Ellie Mae McGinn, Ruby Mulvenna and Abigail Grant) pipping the Snow Flakes (Amelia Grant, Jackson Burns and Ellie Steenson) at the post to take first place, while in the senior games, the Reckless Rudolphs (Tierna Harper, Chloe Flynn, Erin McCullough and Emma McDowell) came out first against the Bouncy Baubles (Katie Niblock, Lily Rose McGinn, Millie Mulvenna and Molly McGinn).

The club are also hosting a New Year Show jumping League, which will commence on Friday, January 7 also at The Gamekeepers Lodge, kindly sponsored by ENE Conveyor Systems in Banbridge.

The five-week league will run on a point-based system – the same rider/ horse combination must complete at four of the five weeks to be eligible for prizes.

This league is pre-entry and entries must be texted to 07783 683478 by 12 noon on Friday, January 7 for the first leg.

For further details, contact the club via Facebook.
