The TRI Equestrian NI Interschools League, held at the Meadows Equestrian Centre, concluded on Saturday 14th January with a fantastic performance by both Hunterhouse College teams in the Novice 85cm Competition. This event was the culmination of a 5 month league and began with 37 teams competing from all over the Province.
Hunterhouse Red Team(pictured above), Indie Bloomfield Faiers (Millparks Slievenagarragh), Mollie Park (Little Miss Lilly), Alice Kilpatrick (Sam) and Sophia Bloomfiels Faiers (Millparks Slievenagarragh), rode valiantly over a really technical course picking up very few faults and finishing 7th on the day which moved the team from 13th to 11th placing at the close of the league and in the top third.
Hunterhouse Blue Team(pictured below), Lucy Toombs (Kasino), Ella Heron (Riley), Sophie Lister Tinsley (Shannon) and Gillian Grogan (Heaven Sent) finished with a zero Score for the team (one of only 3 teams to achieve this over a very difficult course) which put them into both Second Place on the day and Second Place in the league, just Behind Assumption Grammar and marginally ahead of our closest rivals, Royal School Armagh. The girls were rightly delighted with their achievements (and the £25 vouchers each to spend at the TRI equestrian Store) and as prizewiners, have qualified for the All Irish Final in Kildare, later in the Spring.
