Search All Trial Reports



What a super trial this is. Anne Collen, Trials Manager and all her helpers made sure the trial ran smoothly. Thank you for your hospitality Anne which made our stay in Ireland so enjoyable. .Marjorie (caterer extraordinaire) does a grand job creating lovely food in a horse trailer which is used as the base. To Anne, Miriam, Marjorie and Janet many thanks for the evening meals and to the Society for the treat on Saturday night. .We were really spoilt.

Each afternoon when the trial ended we had to go to the pub across the road for a “yarn” where I was also introduced to “hot port”

Tracking for all the stakes was on good pasture land. We were fortunate to have some sunshine during the days after frosty nights.
