Tipperary Racecourse have been in touch to ask the Side Saddle Association to put on a simple display at their ‘Fillies Friday night out’ race night for Action Breast Cancer.
Riders are asked to parade in the ring for this event and GROUND PERMITTING (!) we might also be able to have a canter down the track in front of the stands. It will be a great practice for the noise and excitement that accompanies the Dublin Horse Show less than a week later.
The display will take place immediately after the 6.30 race. All interested riders are asked to phone Ciara immediately on 087 2266 321. Please note you must be a fully paid up member of the SSA to take part.
All of the extra information below is from the Tipperary Racecourse website.
