5 teams through to Connolly’s Red Mills Team Dressage Championship

Five teams are through to the Connolly’s Red Mills Team Dressage Championship final in August.

Three teams qualified from the South West region where 10 teams took part in the qualifier at Skevanish Equestrian Centre, Co. Cork.

Kerry based clubs were at the fore taking the top two places with the Kerry Riding Club team of Mary Bradley (Bootilicious), Pat Sheehan (LVS Buzz Lightyear), Jacqueline Higgins (Marks Pride) and Caroline Songhurst Stiles (Carriglea Chieftain), claimed the spoils on a total of 416.53%.

Killarney Riding Club was next best on 403.74% to secure a place at the final in second place while Glengarriff took third place on 403.73%.

Elsewhere, two teams will qualify from the West Leinster region after 8 teams took part in their decider last Sunday.

Greenhills made it a double success for the club, as earlier this month they won the team show jumping qualifier, added the team dressage qualifier to their list of wins after the quartet of Finonuala O’ Connor (Mighty Clever), Helena Alexander (Chatsworth Lux), Lorna Keogh (Killmac Z) and Lianne O’ Shea (Bento Van De Noordheuvel) amassed a total of 219.33% to claim the spoils.

It was a very close affair, however, as second placed Killcarrick Riding Club, finished on a total of 218.2% to secure the other remaining place at the championship final in August.
