Massive congratulations to the six Irish riders who successfully completed the TREC GB Championships 2015 in Scotland. All six riders passed vetting, finished the POR and competed in the MA and PTV phases. A fantastic weekend was had by all with huge laughs, lessons learnt and plenty of wine and cheese provided by the wonderful support group who came over on the blue mini bus.
The riders were part of the first ever TREC GB Championships and were rewarded with a straight-forward POR route but which included challenging tickets alongside some wonderful scenery which involved steep inclines through forest, long bridges across motorways and scenic roads around reservoirs. The grassy MA rpoved a challenge for some as it curved around a show jumping course and some horses had never experienced the 'buzz' of a starter machine! Finally, the thrill of the PTV: a 4.2km course up and down some steep inclines and around acres of corn fields. Ridden and in-hand obstacles presented themselves to eager riders, and even an in-hand low branches!
All in all a fabulous weekend, excellently organised and executed by the GB group and safe, fun and challenging for all involved. Until next year....!!!!
