Kilkeel Riding Club starts activities after a long, quiet winter

IT has been a strange year for Kilkeel and District Riding Club due to the covid-19 pandemic. The club missed out on social events, prize givings, training events, fun rides and their annual Silver Show. However, all that aside, it made the first few outings of the year all the more enjoyable.

On Saturday, June 12, members of Kilkeel and District Riding Club met up in Castlewellan Forest Park, had a beautiful two-hour ride, then sat down to a socially distanced picnic for a long overdue catchup with riders and non-riders.

With club activities recommenced, the club then held a show jumping training show at Mourne Equestrian Centre, Kilkeel on Saturday, June 26. The training show was well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Upcoming events

Show jumping Silver Show – Saturday, July 24.

Working Hunter Clinic with Toni Donnelly – Thursday, July 29.

Showing and Working Hunter Silver Show – Saturday, July 31.
