Treo Eile Partnering with the Irish Pony Club

We are very excited to partner with the Irish Pony Club to reward the participation of thoroughbreds across the different disciplines.  Our inaugural sponsorship at the Eventing Championships last year, saw Killinick member Lilymai Berry and the ex point-to-pointer Skylanna Scatman win the Into Intermediate class and our Training Bursary.  More and more we are coming across members riding racehorses that have transitioned to a second career within the Irish Pony Club, which highlights their versatility and suitability.

Larry O’Keeffe (DC Killinick Branch) with member Jessie Bates & Guns For Hire, Anne O’Connor (Treo Eile), Alice Mernagh (Area 4 Rep), Ivan Hatton (Chairman, Eventing Committee), Lilymai Berry & Skylanna Scatman, Jacinta Reville (Area 4 Eventing Rep)
