WITH the days already becoming shorter, it is clear that the winter months are not far away, so it was no surprise that Connell Hill (Randalstown) saw the start of their SJI Autumn Horse League commence last Thursday, September 2.
With the weather saying dry, another good turnout ensured great jumping throughout the classes. This league is set to run weekly throughout the months of September and October, and all entries can be placed through the SJI Live app.
