THE Pony Show held at Kernan Equestrian Centre, Crossmaglen on Saturday, July 27 incorporated the Michael Morrisey National Pony League, the Gateau Stables Young Pony Series and the SJI Future Champions Series.
The show kicked off with the 60cm and 70cm classes. A special mention must go to a double winner in these two classes – Jocelyn Hutchinson and ‘Flight of Earls Alo’. Jocelyn divided first in the 60cm class and produced the only double clear in the 70cm class.
The first jump off class, the 128 85cm class, was won by Johan Fitzpatrick Burns and ‘Lisnagades Limited Edition’. Second and third places went to Cillian Torrens with ‘Tyrrells Pass Madamoiselle’ and ‘Tynan Petal’ respectively.
First place in the 138 1m class went to the only double clear, Karen McFadden and ‘Orfelia VD Bisschop’. McFadden Equine took both first and second places in the 138 1.10m class, with ‘Curragh Dawn’, ridden by Cara McFadden and ‘Stocai Baine’, ridden by Cormac Taggart.
The 148 1.10m and 148 1.20m classes were dominated by the McEntee and McEvoy young riders. Katie McEntee and ‘Barravalley’ were first in the 148 1.10m class, with John McEntee second and third on ‘Wrenwood Bambalino’ and ‘Johnny Jinx’ respectively.
Moving on to the last class of the day, the 148 1.20m, John was in the ribbons again, finishing up first and fourth. Niamh McEvoy ended a successful day with her placings of second on ‘Sparkling Boomerangs Clover’, third on ‘Sparkling Mr Boombastic’ and fifth on ‘Milchem Shes A Keeper’.
