GAA clubs have various ways of generating much need income and the Carlanstown-based St. Michaels GFC have taken the less orthodox route.
Following up on last year’s highly successful hunter trials the club will stage a similar event on a professionally-designed course at Carlanstown on Sunday, 10.0.
The course includes 30 varied fences including five water jumps and the competition is divided into five main events - Kiernan’s Bar open singles, the Carlanstown Cross Country open pairs, Garry’s Bar novice singles, Centra Carlanstown novice doubles and the Kells Equestrian Centre pre-novice pairs.
Total prize fund on offer is 2,000 euro with prizes for the first three finishers and rosettes for the first six finishers in all the events.
The younger generation will also be catered for as they can enter the pre-novice pairs with a parent or adult and go round the entire course over the novice jumps. There is also a clear-round showjumping event as well as musical rides. Hot food, snacks, tea, coffee and refreshments will be available on site.
