Fingal Harriers Side Saddle Meet


The Fingal Harriers will host a side saddle lawn meet at Master Brian Beggar’s house at Fieldstown bridge, Oldtown on Saturday 4th of February. This meet is next door to the famous Dreaper stables where Arkle was trained and only 15 mins from Dublin Airport. There will be plenty of jumping for those who want it and ways around everything for riders that are not so confident. Hirelings can be arranged for overseas visitors, all ladies must supply their own side saddle. After the meet there will be refreshments served in the local pub followed by music and dancing that night. Stabling is available locally for anyone bringing their own horse and there will be a beach ride the following day Sunday 5th of February. Please phone Michael McGrath on 00353862225611 for any further information.
