Good luck to all the South Munster Dressage members at the National Championships!
What a fantastic turnout for SMD! This year we will have 15 members competing at the National Championship – nearly a third of the region’s membership! This is a new record for us and a great reflection on the hard work and dedication of the members.
Our sole representatives at advanced level will be Angela Lyons with Latino J. No shortage of experience there - Latino J won the Preliminary Championship as a 6 year old back in 1999!
This pair will also compete at advanced medium level, where they will be joined by long-time members Elaine Potter (Winnes Hit II) and Wolfgang Frank (Castletown Jaro), as well as recent arrival to South Munster (although by no means new to dressage!) Simone Howarth (Dino de Laurentis).
At medium level we have Anna Dangerfield (Tintoretto S) and Maebh Hennessy (Snoop Dogg).
Maebh, Elaine and Susi will also be competing at Elementary level, the former with the same mount and the latter two with L.B and Welt Crusador respectively. They’ll be joined by Laura Lyons (Cuffesgrange Almost), Charlotte Butler (Ashenwood Jute) and Jacqueline Walsh (Kilkeany Sea Mist).
Charlotte, Susi and Jacqueline will also ride at Novice level, the former two with the same mounts and Jacqueline with Kilkeany Druid. They’ll be joined at the level by Vanessa O’ Sullivan (Comograaf), returning to the National Championships after a number of years absence.
Comograaf and Vanessa will contest the preliminary level too, along with Elizabeth Furney (Suir Cavaletto) and National Championships first-timers Stephanie Marwood (Dicey Reilly), Isobel O’ Mahoney (Ballingowan Freedom) and Eimear White (Whatever Next). Eimear will also contest the Young Dressage Horse Championship.
In the under 25s Championship, Charlotte Butler and Isobel O’ Mahoney will carry the mantle for South Munster.
I hope you will all join with the SMD committee in wishing all our members the very best of luck and maybe even consider going along to support. The National Championships take place at Cavan Equestrian Centre from 7 to 9 September – see programme and times.
And for those who cannot make it this year – we hope you’ll be inspired by the example of our valiant competitors and aim to be there next year!
