Autumn Dressage League sees high standards at Ardnacashel

ARDNACASHEL Equestrian, Comber were pleased to host week three of their Autumn Dressage League on Sunday, October 17. Judges Lucinda Webb and Fiona Young took charge of busy classes across the two arenas and a high level of competition.

A large Intro Junior class started off competition in Ring 1, judged by Fiona Young.

The class was won by Jackson Laing on his lovely pony ‘Prada’, with a score of 72.4%. Intro Senior followed on from the juniors, with the class being won by Karina McVeigh on the lovely ‘Coco’, with a score of 72.39%.

Prelim Junior was next on the schedule, with this class being won by Niamh Rooney on ‘Toffee’ with 76.15% in a test that highly impressed the judge. A huge Prelim Senior I class came next, with Louise McMinn on ‘Lisbane Wizard’ scoring 78.65% in a beautifully relaxed and accurate test.

Over in Ring 2, Lucinda Webb started her judging with the Prelim Senior II class, which was won by Robyn Catterall showing off her side saddle expertise on ‘Arctic Eclipse’, with a score of 74.2%.

The Newcomers class was next on the list and Lucy Donnan took the lead by an impressive 10%, scoring 74.8% with her ‘Killoughter Nugget’.

In the Novice class, Reese Hogg took the honours with her lovely bay ‘Smythy’. The Four and Five-year-old class, always exciting to watch for new and upcoming talent, was won by Dale Roberts with ‘Bellini’.

Finishing the day was the Elementary class, which was won by Victoria McCandless with ‘Koolstyle’.

Many thanks to the judges, Lucinda Webb and Fiona Young for their expertise; special thanks also to the scribes and, of course, the scorers, who work tirelessly to ensure all competitors get their score sheets promptly.
