ON December 15, the Holestone Farmers Bloodhounds gathered for the inaugural Tannaghmore hunt which was hosted by Bruce, Marie and Alex Henry McCool.
Despite the cool conditions all riders and horses were rearing to go and were treated to a warming beverage before the horn was blown.
The first challenge was a fence jump into the sand paddock and riders were then greeted by a series of hurdle jumps. Next up was a laneway with a row of natural jumps which pleased everyone. After a quick hot drinks stop both riders and horses were refreshed and ready for more natural jumps, laneways and ditches.
A special challenge was waiting in the form of a steep drop which proved exciting for even the most experienced of hunters.
Upon return there was a welcome spread of hot food and further refreshment at the Henry McCool home.
The first Tannaghmore Hunt was a roaring success and the Holestone Farmers Bloodhounds wish to thank all farmers and landowners for their support.
