Five-Star and Youngster Tour talent at the Meadows

WITH the overnight deluges experienced in the Lurgan area, a quick decision by the team at the Meadows on Saturday morning resulted in the running of amalgamated classes in one arena, as athletes from all over Ireland came to the Meadows Equestrian Centre, for the final running of the Five Star and Youngster Tour in the venue for 2021.

Starting off the day in Arena 1 was the One-Star Qualifier, which was merged with the Four-Year-Old Youngster Tour. In the arena, Course Designers, Aaron McCusker and Derrick Gillen were on duty to test the ability of these horses and riders.

Following this, a large entry in the Three- and Four-Star competitions, as well as the Five-Year-Old and Six-Year-Old Youngster Tour classes, made for some exciting, timed phases, with at times only hundredths of a second separating first and second placings!

Rounding off a remarkably busy day in the Main Arena was the 1.25-1.30m Five-Star class. The fastest combination to make it through the two rounds without penalty was John Higgins with Gerard McMullan’s ‘Val De Mazeroy’, the bay gelding by ‘Felton Du Mont’, who kept all the rails in the cups to claim the top spot.
