Young riders having a blast in the summer camps at Blennerville Equestrian Centre
Kerry will always be more prone to a break in the weather than most patches, but we've had a few sunny stretches this season, serving as vivid, welcome reminders that our Kingdom's peerless when a scorcher pays us a visit .
Making the most of those days is made easier when you've a selection of equestrian centres to avail of, and there was no shortage of riding helmets and teal jackets seen zipping around the verdant, flower-speckled foothills of Slieve Mish this week as aspiring young jockeys kitted out and mounted to take part in the afternoon pony camps at Blennerville Equestrian Centre in Tonevane.
The camps have been going for over 20 years, and will run throughout the summer from 11am to 3pm, Monday to Friday, with the safest of horses and ponies used in lessons to allow riders to acquire confidence as they start out at the oldest of games.
Anyone interested in joining the fun can direct their enquiries to Tim Hurley at (087) 257 9574. Alternatively, you can check our Blennerville Equestrian Centre's Facebook and web pages.
