Jumping into second year for club thumbnailRobyn McMurray on Royanna winner in the Xpole class.

MOSSVALE Riding Club is now into their second year of running Mossvale Equestrian Centre, many thanks to everyone out there who have been supporting us.

We are still taking on new members so if you'd like to join, come along any night we're on and collect a form, our instructors are running every week. Our instructors are Toni Donnelly, Clare Steele, Graham McIntyre and Claire Sedgeman.

These are open to members at 12 and non-members at 15, every Thursday evening we have horse and pony jumping from 50/60cms up starting at 7.30pm.

This week 19 January we are having a Jump-Mix which consists of working hunter type fences/cross-country and showjumps, Fridays are Pony Jumping from Xpoles -80/90cms.

Our Botanica Adult League which is due to run this Saturday, 21 January and Baileys Junior League on Saturday, 28 January are being postponed due to an outbreak of strangles in the Newry and Mourne areas, which most of our teams come from, next dates for both are adults 18 February and Juniors 25 February, so we hope to see everyone back then, sorry for any inconvenience caused.

On Saturday, 21 January we are having a working hunter course built, so anyone wishing to get their young horses out are welcome to come along. There will be lots of greenery/water jump etc and it starts at 1pm and is open to all. Doors open at 12.30pm and this will run for three weeks. Double clears mean points, points mean prizes hope to see you all there, canteen facilities available.

Dates for your diary -

Dressage league 12 March, 26 March and the final on 9 April.

Huntchase on Saturday, 1 April at 7pm, Easter Monday on 17 April - the working hunter show, horses and ponies.
