(to qualify riders had to compete at the final – unfortunately although we had very competitive elementary classes throughout the winter, Cadhla was the only rider in the league who attended the final, The win was well deserved as she won the class on the day)
In this amalgamated league Maeve Deverell scored an equal 1st, winning with Annaharvey Dunowen in the medium and Derravaragh Boy in the FEI Pony Rider (equal points with both rides)
