Ravensdale Lodge Latest Results- August 7th

Week five of Ravensdale Lodge's grass dressage league continued on Tuesday 2nd August with a great turn out for the competition which started in bright sunshine and continued until near dark.

There were four grandstand tickets on offer for Friday's Nations Cup (Aga Khan Trophy) at the RDS in Dublin courtesy of LONGINES. A draw for the tickets was held after each class with young rider Kelly Smith from Mullaghban Newry winning the ticket for class 1 (Intro A), Dundalk rider Mary Cosgrove was drawn out of the hat for the ticket for class 2 (Prelim 12) while another local rider, Eithne O' Hanrahan picked up the ticket for class 3 (Prelim 14) & the final ticket of the evening went to Newry rider Clare Toal for class 4 (Novice 28). It was a very even and fair spread with two tickets going north of the boarder and two tickets staying south which is a fair reflection of the support for the league at Ravensdale Lodge which nestles the boarder.

The competition on the evening was fierce as usual with class three, the prelim 14 class being particularly close with five of the nine entries getting a score of in excess of 70% and only being separated by a couple of percentage points. Young rider Sophie Buller from Scarvagh came out on top in the class on a great score of 77.08% which was the highest score on the night, winner of class 2, Karina Mc Veigh from Holywood Co. Down was second in the class on a score of 75.83% while third place went to Claire Martin who finished up with 75.41%. Full results below.
