WHAT a thrilling end of year Friday Night Final onlookers were treated to at Kernan Equestrian Centre, Crossmaglen last Friday evening! For 12 weeks, riders battled it out for TRI vouchers, prizes and points to see who would be the Leading Riders of the season.
On behalf of Kernan Equestrian, organisers would like to express their gratitude to TRI for co-sponsoring the weekly vouchers and prizes.
Special thanks must go to all of the wonderful parents, who loaded up their ponies and children; hail, rain or snow to make it to the shows every Friday evening.
Congratulations to all te competitiors, especially the finalists and organisers wish you every success in the future.
Finally, thank you to Mary McAlister, Mary Mahon, Gerry Thompson and James, the judges; Jimmy, the Course Builder and Lindsay, Eammon and Nora, the chefs and entertainers!
