Well done to Our Lady’s equestrian team who won the hotly-contested first leg of the Interschool’s competition in Killossery Lodge Swords on Sunday 30th September. Of the thirteen teams to start, only 4 teams completed the first two rounds on a score of zero faults. This resulted in a 4 way jump-off against the clock with the fastest clear round to win the prize. Two riders were nominated for each remaining team.  For Our Lady’s, we had Sophie Moore on Cindy who jumped a fabulous clear in the fastest time of the day, followed by Grainne Lacey on Silver Lacey who was the last rider to jump and dealt with the pressure to give us a clear round, which resulted in Our Lady’s winning the competition.

Many thanks to all who travelled to support the team, and thanks too, to James Kernan who trains the team on Monday evenings in Crossmaglen. As we look forward to the next competition in the same league, we are now the team to beat!
