Manx Harness Club recently hosted the Manx Horse Council Carriage Driving Challenge under glorious sunshine at Ballacallin Mooar by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Gilbey.

The successful event provided an opportunity for MHC members to try a new equine discipline.

A field of eight teams competed: Isle of Man Pony Club, Kennaa Riding Club, West Coast Riding Club, TREC (two teams), Conrhenny Equestrian Centre (also two) and Manx Harness Club.

The event saw the individuals navigate their way through cones under the guidance of drivers Jean McKaig, Suzanne Colquitt, Sharon Maternaghan and Libby Priest.

Afterwards, Manx Harness Club chairwoman Priest thanked those who contributed and supported the event; Barbara and Kendra for time keeping, Suzanne, Jean and Sharon for the use of their ponies AND caterers Jean, Margot and Linda.

Thanks also go to Milan Veterinary Practice for sponsoring the event, Manx Horse Council for letting Manx Harness Club run the event and also the various club scorers.

Rosettes and prizes were awarded to the top five individuals and teams.
