THE Drumhowan Stud Dressage League at Ardnacashel, Comber wrapped up on Sunday, with a fantastic final after dedicated participants had attended for six weeks. There was a great turnout and it was a lovely summer-like day, without a cloud in the sky.
Congratulations to all those in the final, who received Ardnacashel saddle pad, fleece rug, gorgeous rosettes and some tasty treats from Baileys, whose hard work paid off. Hannah Blakely got the highest score of the day on ‘Ardgaineen Sparrow’ in the Four and Five-year-old.
Consistently high scores in Intro Seniors made it a close call for Cathryn McCarroll on ‘Maggi May’ and Kerry Dickson on ‘A Stolen Star’!
Next weekend, Ardnacashel will be hosting ridden, in-hand and working hunter classes for all. Ponies will be on Saturday, June 5 and horses will be on Sunday, June 6.
Ardnacashel always put on fantastic working hunter shows and this will be no exception. There are traditional in-hand cob classes, which will bring in a wide variety of gorgeous feathered cobs! There are even a few miniature horse classes, which will be a delight to see! There is definitely something for everyone this weekend, with part-bred classes, veteran and Dales classes all on the Saturday!
Ardnacashel have all bases covered, with an on-site café serving home-made goodies! Another great thing about this upcoming show is £5 from each entry will be donated to Air Ambulance N.I, so the equestrian community can show their appreciation for this worthwhile cause. Entries open via www.ardnacashelequestrian.co.uk/ enter-online and will close on Friday 5pm!
