MICHAEL Hennessy, Munster regional chairman and a member of the SJI’s executive committee, has organised a special fund-raising event for Cobh Rescue Horses at the White’s Cross Charity Show on Sunday, September 3rd.

The event, a speed challenge over a Derby track of eight fences, will see some well-known local jockeys team up with a 128cms show jumper. The pony rider will head off first against the clock and, upon his or her return to the pocket, the jockey will kick on with their round. The teams, which will be sponsored, will be drawn on the day.
