The first of three one-day was the Killinick qualifier on Wednesday, July 16th at Sleedagh Farm, where the host branch got off the mark in the open where Patrick Whelan recorded his first 2014 win on Footfall. Whelan (18), who rides for Patrick Peare and Orla Roche of Wexford EC, completed on his winning dressage score of 24 penalties.

The Killinicks won both intermediate classes, starting with Paddy Hamilton and Write Off, whose task was eased when clubmates Rachel Rowe and The Artists Apprentice, joint leaders on 19.2 after dressage, had problems across the country while they recorded a double clear.
