148 1.20M MINI GRAND PRIX: Niamh McEvoy and ‘iFlex’ won the 148 1.20m Mini Grand Prix class at Kernan’s Pony Show and were presented with their prize by proprietor, James Kernan. (FW30-562NN)

THE Pony Show held at Kernan Equestrian Centre, Crossmaglen on Saturday, July 18 and Sunday, July 19 was part of the SJI Ulster Region Pony Summer Tour, sponsored by TRI Equestrian (NI).

Saturday dawned a brisk, sunny day with an excellent day’s jumping by the 128cm ponies and riders. With 150 entries to get through, everything ran smoothly.

128 85CM U10 YRS: Elizabeth McCracken and ‘Sweet Lily’ won the 128 85cm U10 Yrs class at Kernan’s Pony Show and received their prize from proprietor, James Kernan. (FW30-561NN)

The first timed class of the day was the 128 U10 yrs 85cm. Eight of the 15 starters jumped double clears, but it was Elizabeth McCracken and ‘Sweet Lily’s’ excellent time of 24.38 seconds that gave them first place and the winning rosette.

The main class of the 128s was the 128 1m Mini Grand Prix, which was run as a jump off class. Six combinations went through to the jump off, but Charlotte McCracken and ‘Uquam d ‘Emery’s’ fast time of 35.69 seconds proved unbeatable, so a second win of the day was clocked up for the McCracken girls!

Sunday’s jumping kicked off with the 148cm classes. The 148 1.20m Mini GP class produced a high standard of jumping. With five of the combinations jumping clear in the first round, it was second to go in the jump off, Niamh McEvoy and ‘Iflex’, whose time of 44.30 seconds was untouchable, ensuring her the first prize and red rosette.

The 138 classes followed, with the 138 1.10m Mini GP the main class. Again the standard of jumping was high, with 11 proceeding to the jump off. Going in first was Jenny Dunlop and ‘Rockin Roxie’, who set the pace in a fast time of 37.68 seconds. It looked like all was going Jenny’s way, but second last to jump, Cara McFadden and ‘Cullagh Dawn’ were not to be outdone. Picking up the challenge, they sped round in just 35.36 seconds and took pole position.

The Children on Horses 1m class was won by Che Flanagan on ‘Premier Domino’ (21.18 seconds). First in the COH 1.10m/ 1.20m class went to Niamh McEvoy on ‘LMD Douglas Swatch’ (23.57 seconds) placing Niamh in the ribbons again.

With 350 entries over the two days’ jumping, Kernan Equestrian Centre wish to extend their sincere thanks to all those competitors taking part, parents, judges, arena party, café staff and helpers, who all contributed to make this Ulster Region Pony Tour Series a very successful fixture in the pony calendar.
