The County Galway Hunt, the Blazer’s Branch of the Irish Pony Club held its Summer Camp in Kilskeagh, Athenry last week. Most of the members attended and while fun and enjoyment were the order of the day the instruction on riding and horsemanship and of the proper care of their animals was also a very important part of the week.

Test were taken on the final day. All who were invited to do their tests were successful:

D Test: Lydia Ryan and Jonathan Mclnerney.

D+ Test: Lisa Holland, Conor Hynes, Pierse Mclnerney, Lorna O’Regan and Jason Ryan.

C. Test: Rose Barrett, Geraldine Gannon, Sarah Gavin, Paula Hynes, Vanessa Sheridan and Sarah O’Regan.

Felicity McGrath, aged 6, had the distinction of being the youngest member to attend camp for some time.

Sarah O’Regan and Sarah Gavin were honoured to be chosen to represent the Branch at Euro Camp which will be held this year in Gurteen Agricultural College near Roscrea, in Co. Tipperary.

Our thanks to all who helped to make the camp a great success, especially our instructors Helen Nolan and Paula Crowe, Treasurer Veronica Mclnerney, Secretary, Lavina Dempsey, District Commissioner Finbarr O’Regan, on whose land we held the camp and for the many helpers who were on hand.
