SUNDAY morning, December 20 saw the prize giving of the TRI Equestrian sponsored Autumn Pony Tour taking place. This very well run, socially distanced event was held at the Meadows Equestrian Centre, Lurgan, with the kind permission of the McCusker family, for which the Ulster Region Pony Committee were very grateful.
The Autumn Tour was again fabulously well supported – a big thank you must go to all athletes and parents for their continued support. The Ulster Region Pony Committee would also like to extend thanks to all the venues for their support in what was an unprecedented year. They also extend their thanks to Gareth McCombe of TRI Equestrian for continued sponsorship of these tours in the Ulster Region.
Each leg of the tour provided some fabulous jumping at all venues.
Congratulations to all the novice tour winners, who shared first place, as well as having the chance to draw for the TRI rug, sash or cup – well done all!
In the open tour, there were joint winners in the 128 1m class with Zara-Jane Kelly and Charlotte McCracken sharing the title. In the 138 1.10m tour, Oliver Doherty came out on top, with Lucy Morton winning the 148 1.10m tour.
Beth Thompson was the winner in the 148 Six/ Seven-year-old tour, while Yiayan Evans won the 148 1.20m tour.
Ben Maybin did the double when winning the 1m COH/ Junior and 1.10m/1.20m Junior tour and Maeve Clarke was the winner of the COH 1.10m/1.20m tour.
Once again, many thanks to Gareth McCombe of TRI Equestrian for their continued kind sponsorship. Wishing everyone a successful 2021!
