THE final of the fourth of Ecclesville’s Show jumping Leagues for 2018 was held on September 21 and it was again very competitive. With the Super League well underway, the top six in each class also won valuable points, as at the end of 2018, in each class from 60cm through to 1.10cm, a perpetual trophy will be awarded to rider and horse combination with the most points.

The many spectators were treated to great displays of show jumping, as the competitors had to be both careful and speedy to negotiate Raymond Caldwell’s challenging courses! Omagh Equestrian and Countrywear had also kindly sponsored the Turnout Prizes for the final, so this was an added bonus for the riders and grooms.

The 60cm class was won by the very competitive Cara Garrity and ‘Sweetie Pie’. The winner of the 70cm class was Emma Quigley on the very speedy, ‘Perfect Promise’.

The 80cm and 90cm classes were dominated by the talented, Jordana Mitchell and her lovely pony, ‘Hillrose’.

The outright winner of both the 1m and 1.10m classes was the very consistent Amy Noble riding ‘Storm’.

The Super League for 2018 is looking very interesting after four Leagues. With several new combinations in the mix, the leader-board has again been given a good shake up!

Going into the final League for 2018, Sarah-Jane Sloane and ‘Lilley’ still lead the 60cm class. The very consistent, Lucie-Ann Abbott and ‘Louie’ lead both the 70cm and 80cm classes. Jordana Mitchell and Hillrose lead the 90cm class. There is no outright leader in either the 1m or 1.10 classes, so still all to play for! The classes are all very competitive and all can change on the final night of League 5 on December 6, when the Super League Cups and Sashes will be awarded!

The organisers would like to take this opportunity thank all the competitors who supported this league. Also sincere thanks to Raymond Caldwell, Course Builder, assisted by Malvern Moore, to Rachel Parker who assisted in the Judges box and to Omagh Equestrian and Countrywear for sponsoring the Turnout prizes.

The Ecclesville Team are running a Halloween Show on Sunday, October 28 and this will be an ideal opportunity for a warm-up before Omagh High Schools Inter-schools Show on Friday, November 2. The final league for 2018 is then scheduled to start on Friday, November 9. For further details, please contact Sandra on 07990 541966 or Ecclesville on 028 8284 0591.
