Newsletter – Springing into March

As we (hopefully!) bid farewell to the wet and wild weather of March, I’m sure many of us are eagerly anticipating the days when we can trade in our raincoats and wellies for shorts and t-shirts. Ah, the joys of Irish weather and horse ownership – a match made in… well, let’s just say, it’s certainly character-building!

Speaking of March, it was an action-packed month here at Treo Eile, with our sponsored events keeping us all on our toes. Let’s take a quick trot down memory lane, shall we?

Eventing Ireland Western Region Starter Series Finale: Easter weekend brought with it the final showdown of the Eventing Ireland Western Region Starter Series. Congratulations to Black Field and Evita Thomsen for clinching the win with their consistently stellar performances throughout the series. Here’s to many more victories in the future!

Ward Union Hunt Antler Challenge: In early March, the Ward Union Hunt Antler Challenge had us all on the edge of our saddles. A huge shoutout to Cobb and Co, partnered by Ailbhe Tormey, for being the first thoroughbred home. What an impressive feat!

Interschools Showjumping Bursaries: We were delighted to sponsor two Training Bursaries at interschools showjumping competitions. Lady Maureen, ridden by Harley Mc Ceag, soared to victory at the Meadows Equestrian Centre, while Kayla Ryan and her thoroughbred Lily Trotter claimed the prize at Coilog Equestrian Centre. Well done to both riders!

Kildare Hunt Performance Day: Our involvement continued at the Kildare Hunt Performance Day, where we sponsored a prize for the Highest Placed Thoroughbred in the “Seasoned Hunter 1m” class. Congratulations to Mick Manning and his mount Swanley for their well-deserved win!

With Tomás Ryan at the helm, our members enjoyed a day filled with learning and laughter, and thankfully, a bit of sunshine too! Check out our clinic recap here

Looking Ahead to April: As we gallop into April, it seems that our calendar is once again filling up with exciting events and opportunities. With the promise of brighter evenings on the horizon, let’s keep our fingers crossed that the weather-gods smile upon us! Our Cross country clinic with Sally Corscadden will take place on the 20th April and is fully booked. We also will be keeping an eye on the Stepping Stones to Success league as it wraps up at the end of the month.

Stay Connected: Don’t forget to stay connected with us on social media! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for all the latest updates, behind-the-scenes glimpses, and more. Our “Behind the Bridle” series is still going strong, and we’re always on the lookout for more stories about your thoroughbreds! If you haven’t already, share your tale with us through this link.

Merchandise: We have merchandise available on Itsplainsailing, we will be doing a small restock soon so keep an eye out for that too.

Here’s to another fantastic month ahead, filled with unforgettable moments and plenty of horsing around!

Until next time, happy riding!
