Today the Irish Pony Club have announced that Connolly’s RED MILLS will once again be sponsoring the Irish Pony Club Connolly’s RED MILLS Eventing Championships. This year sees the addition of two exciting new classes, U12 individual and Intro-Intermediate.

Intro-Intermediate is for intermediate riders who feel unsure or unready to progress from Junior to Intermediate level. This class will enable the member to become comfortable riding the 90cm Show jumping and Cross-country tracks, but while still completing the intermediate level Dressage Test.

The U12 individual competition will enable members from smaller branches and who may not have the numbers to compete as a team to compete as individuals at the championships.

The first Connolly’s RED MILLS Eventing Championships qualifier takes place this Sunday 27th June in Rosanna, hosted by Wicklow Hunt Branch Pony Club.

Mr Richard Kehoe, Irish Pony Club Chairman of Eventing said:

“The Irish Pony Club Eventing Committee are delighted to be continuing our long-standing association with RED MILLS. We would like to thank RED MILLS for their continued support and sponsorship of our Eventing qualifiers and championship for 2021”.

Jane Davis, Equine Brand Manager, Connolly’s RED MILLS said: “We are delighted to be continuing our sponsorship of the Connolly’s RED MILLS Irish Pony Club Eventing Championships which now include the new Under 12 individual and Intro Intermediate Eventing Championships. It is a partnership that we are very proud of and we are delighted to be able to show our support and thanks to the members nationwide.”

“Once again we are looking forward to a very competitive and exciting season. We wish all competitors the very best of luck and we look forward to meeting many of them over the course of the summer,”
