SUNDAY, September 2 saw the final round of the Jump Challenge League 2018 take place at Mill Yard Equestrian Centre, Anahilt, Hillsborough. The combination of show jumping, working hunter and cross-country fences provided an enjoyable course, with a few challenges, which everyone rode very well!

Mill Yard would like to thank everyone who competed at and supported the events – especially the NFU Mutual, Lisburn and Botanica International for once again sponsoring the 2018 League and also thanks to Nomad Photography NI and Happy Chef for covering the events.
