CARRYDUFF Equestrian Centre, based at Primrose Farm, Upper Mealough Road, ran their annual six-week show jumping league throughout July and August, culminating with the final on August 22. Each week a wonderful flowing course was built by Raymond Jess, with the stunning backdrop of the Belfast Black Mountain. With one round for £10 or two for £16, it was a good value competition or more practice for competitor’s next round!
The league was a very competitive one, with many tight turns and gallops with a few thrills and spills to see who would win the wonderful prizes, with some close finishes for the top spots.
