TWO young local riders from the Iveagh branch of the Pony Club enjoyed success at the recent Irish Pony Club eventing championships staged at Tattersalls in Dublin.

Held over two days, Kathy McGaffin from Gilford finished second overall in the intermediate class while team-mate, William Tougher from Blackskull finished third.

Both young riders were absolutely delighted with the placings in what was a very strong field.

“I am particularly delighted as this was only my second outing at intermediate level where the jumps are now up to one metre in height,” explained Kathy who was competing on her pony, Mojo.

William competed on Silver Fox 3.

Both Kathy and William are hoping to build on this success and are looking forward to participating in future events.
