ARDNACASHEL Equestrian’s Autumn Dressage League got off to a fantastic start on Sunday, October 3. The first of a six-week league, there were two rings in action, kindly judged by Lucinda Webb and Fiona Morrow.
Classes ranged from Intro Junior right up to Elementary and included a class for Four- and Five-year-old horses and ponies, so there was something for everyone and the judges had their work cut out, with the high standard of competition being shown.
This league runs until the final on Sunday, November 7, where a range of prizes including rugs and numnahs will be up for grabs to league winners. To qualify for this, all competitors need to do is compete at four out of the six weeks to include the final and prizes will be won on a points basis. Entries online via the Ardnacashel website and further details will be on the Facebook page.
