SUNDAY, November 10 saw the first show of Lime Park’s annual winter horse and pony show jumping League being held. The dry, sunny but chilly morning had everyone out bright and early for the 11am start. It was great to see a lot of old faces, along with new faces.
Courses were built and designed by Sylvia and David Nicholl, with all the newly painted fences.
This Sunday sees the second show in the League, which will be run over four Sundays with the final on the fifth week. Remaining dates are Sundays, November 17 and 24 and December 1, with the final on December 8. Shows start with Beginner/ Warm up round, with cross-poles on the ground and follow on with 50cm cross-poles, 60cm, 70cm, 80cm, 90cm, 1m and 1.10m. To qualify for the final, competitors will have to have jumped in three out of the four shows, with same horse/ pony rider combination and the same competitions each week.
For the final, prizes are mounting up thanks to the sponsors, who are: Stonebridge Equestrian Feeds, K_M Equine Jewellery, Nathan O’Neill Shavings, Michael McAvoy Straw, Kevin McNally Farrier Services, Mackeys Equestrian and Lime Park Tack Shop and Equestrian Centre.
