Big entry for Bray Hunt hunter trials competition
ANNUAL EVENT IN KILRUDDERY A HUGE SUCCESS
THE BRAY Hunt annual Hunter Trial Competition took place last week in Kilruddery, with over 60 participants jumping their horses and ponies around the course.
Organiser Oliver Leonard explained that they do not use a live animal to hunt, rather marking the course out themselves with a scent which the hounds follow.
' We are very grateful to David Brabazon for his kind permission to use the land,' added Oliver, who said that as well as participants, plenty of keen observers came along to walk the course on Saturday and have a look at the magnificent horses.
A number of competitions took place on the day, ranging from experienced to novice and junior.
As well as chairman Oliver, Bill Sullivan helped to organise the day. While Oliver was too busy to participate, he and his horse Bebeing, something of a legend in the hunting world, enjoyed a jump of the course on their own the following day.
