Treo Eile supporting Irish Pony Club 2024


Treo Eile has partnered with the Irish Pony Club again in 2024, to reward members riding thoroughbreds.  The organisation with the mission to ‘connect’, ‘support’ and ‘promote’ the retraining of racehorses, has seen an increase in the number of thoroughbreds participating in Pony Club activities.   Treo Eile’s Executive Officer Anne O’Connor explains, “With the versatility and quick learning of the thoroughbred, the second career option of Pony Club activities is on a positive trajectory.  We are pleased to continue our support of Irish Pony Club members on their competition journey with their thoroughbreds.  Our sponsorship of Training Bursaries, rewards the thoroughbred in its own right and supports the members with their retraining and competition goals”.

Killinick member Lily-Mai Berry and the ex point-to-pointer Skylanna Scatman won the Treo Eile Eventing League in 2023, with Tekka Whelan and Fortunate Max representing the Bray branch taking the Highest Placed Thoroughbred award at the Eventing Championships.  Berry also won the latter award at the 2022 Championships and will campaign a new thoroughbred in 2024, Coburg, 7yo gelding by Sageburg, that had the last of his five runs last August.  The ex Henry de Bromhead trained Changing Course and Sadhbh Finlay (Meath) completed the Highest Placed Thoroughbred double at the IPC Dressage Day and the Showjumping Classic.
