AFTER a couple of weeks of cancelled events due to Covid restrictions, Hagans Croft was delighted to finally get the third week of their Performance Working Hunter underway on Saturday, December 12. Competitors were in for a real treat, as not only did horses and riders get to warm up in Hagans Croft’s spacious new warm up arena, they also got to jump some new rustic fences, which were on offer within the main arena.
With Performance Working Hunter, competitors were judged over the course of 12 fences out of 100 points. Marks were deducted for poles down and refusals and then marks were given for horses’ manners and performance over each fence, along with riders’ style etc. Everyone involved had a fun and safe day out with the horses.
Thank you to all the competitors who supported this event and thanks are also extended to judge Chloe Thompson and Alistair McDonald and to all the stewards, who make the event run so smoothly.
Hagans Croft is now preparing for their annual Christmas Dressage event being held this Saturday, December 19, which will finish off their calendar of events for the year. All information is available on their website, with entries closing on Thursday at 12 noon prior to Saturday’s event. Times will be posted online late on Thursday evening.
All photography is available to purchase from Black Horse Photography NI.
