Busy weekend at Portmore

IT was a busy weekend at Portmore Equestrian Centre, Aghalee as they held another leg of the popular Bluegrass Summer League on Saturday, followed by Balmoral Show Qualifiers on Sunday.

There was a great turnout on both days and a high standard of jumping meant some competitive classes!
