Murphy complete St Patrick's endurance ride

Murphy complete St Patrick's endurance ride

Last week end saw Mr Murphy and his Irish sports horse BIG BENNY take part in the 2017 St Patricks endurance ride run by ILDRA at Downpatrick's race course.

This year we entered the 16 km pleasure ride, as we are new to each other and still forming a partnership.  So we adopted a safety first approach to this ride out.

As one of Northern Ireland's premier off road hacking opportunities this was an event not to be missed.

We got to ride through part of a race course, gallops, open country, fields filled with crops, a local estates grounds, forrest and a few hazards on the way ( a field of PIGS ).

As fan of all things equine we would like to take the committee of ILDRA running this event and will hopefully see you next year.
