THE second and final of Ecclesville’s Show jumping Leagues for 2021 was held on Friday, December 17 and it was a great night of jumping, as not only the League prizes were up for grabs, but beautiful perpetual trophies were also being awarded.
The Ecclesville Team were pleased to be able to run this League, which was to bring to a climax the Super League for 2021. Due to Covid restrictions, for the second year it was a subdued Final with no podium presentations, but the qualified competitors were fantastic on the night and it resulted in some nail-biting jump offs!
Cara Garrity was on fine form throughout the Final and picked up her first red ribbon by winning the 60cm class on ‘Grace’. Sarah Fleming and the very careful ‘Sahara’ picked up the red rosette in the 70cm class and then her friend, Ruby Moore riding ‘Izzy’ had a super round to take the 80cm class.
Cara Garrity and ‘Goldilocks’ then dominated the 90cm and 1m classes and this also ensured her maximum Super League points.
With some the new combinations picking up valuable Super League points, it left the final tally on the league table very interesting! The first of the riders to receive a beautiful cup was Cara Garrity and ‘Grace’, winner of the RD Equestrian 60cm class.
The Eugene Donnelly Memorial Cup for the 70cm class was awarded to a delighted Sarah Fleming and ‘Sahara’, with two League wins in this class. The 80cm Boyd Perpetual Cup was shared by Amanda Magee riding ‘Spencer’ and Cara Garrity riding ‘Tinkerbelle’.
Cara Garrity and ‘Goldilocks’ were also awarded the cups for both the AJS Promotions 90cm class and the Farmfeeds 1m class.
The organisers would like to take this opportunity thank all the many competitors who supported this league and the Super League. Also sincere thanks to Seamus McCaffrey, Course Builder and to Jennifer Leonard, who assisted in the Judge’s box.
The annual Christmas Cracker Show is still scheduled for Monday, December 27, but please check social media in case organiser have to cancel due to Covid restrictions. The team at Ecclesville would like to thank the equestrian community for their continued support and they wish everyone a healthy and happy Christmas.
