Busy week of competition at Connell Hill

A very busy week at Connell Hill, Randalstown started off with the continuation of the SJI Summer Horse League on Thursday, July 1. All competitors enjoyed the weather and the course, but the highlight of the week definitely had to be the Youngster and Five-Star Tour two-day show on Saturday and Sunday, July 3 and 4.

The Youngster and Five-Star show started with an 80cm class on Saturday and continued with Qualifiers for the Four, Five, Six and Seven/ Eight-year-old classes for the final, which is due to be held in Mullingar Equestrian Centre in August. Terrific numbers in all the classes made for a very exciting show, giving all horses of every age and experience the chance to qualify. All show details and entries can be found on the website:
