THE first leg of the Winter Horse and Pony League kicked off on Sunday (January 12) at Connell Hill, Randalstown, which was judged by Marie Fallon O’Kane over tracks set, designed and beautifully displayed by Course Designer Will Crean.
Marie certainly had her work cut out for her, owing to the high standard of jumping at this very early stage in the year, with horses and ponies travelling up from Dundalk and Letterkenny keeping photographer, Lyndon McKee, on his toes snapping the action.
With membership still valid, this is certainly the ideal opportunity to pick up those priceless points with this league continuing on Sunday, January 19; Saturday, January 25 and Saturdays, February 1 and 8, with horses at 10am and ponies at approximately 3pm. Contact Grace on 07765 884254 or Gillian on 07715 201787 for information – so don’t miss out.
