IT certainly has been a busy time for pony riders, with major championships in Dublin and Millstreet, but their summer season came to a close as Mullingar Equestrian played host to the TRI Equestrian National Pony Championships last week. Following four tough days of competition, championship titles were awarded.

Juliette McIntosh and Twin Cam were crowned the under 10 National Champion while Senan Reape and Mickeybo were crowned the 128cm National Champions. Claiming the 138cm National Championship title was Oliver Doherty with Springhill Copper Beach, while Niamh McEvoy and Fireman were crowned the 148cm National Champions.
