Well done to all those who competed and congratulations to the winners of each class.
Young Fermanagh Harriers Pony Club member, Molly Lee and ‘Teddy’ had a very successful show, winning both the 60cm and 70cm classes. Strule Valley Riding Club member, Jenna Coote and Riley won the 70cm class and another Strule Valley member, Heather Beattie and ‘Diamond Milly’ won the 80cm class. The very nice partnership of Zara Smith and ‘Pepper’ took first place in both the 90cm and 1 metre classes.
Members continue their busy schedule with flatwork/ polework training during October with Penny Sangster and moving into November will see Toni Donnelly return for a working hunter session, then Kyle Hayes will take members for three weeks of gridwork and show jumping training at both Ecclesville and Necarne.
