Summer show jumping underway at Ardnacashel

ARDNACASHEL’S Summer Show Jumping League kicked off wonderfully on Sunday! This was the first of nine dates that form this league, hosted by Ardnacashel Equestrian, Comber. It was held in the main arena, where everyone enjoyed the Spain-like temperatures. All horses were on form, with many completing clear rounds. All those who placed first to sixth received gorgeous rosettes, with the final prizes at the end of the league being Ardnacashel branded rugs and numnahs, thanks to the fantastic sponsors!

There was a great variety of competitors with different riders winning each class. Ellie Hynds received first on ‘Willow’ and second on ‘Home Alone’ in the 80cm Junior class, which was well deserved! It was nice to see so many in the 50cm and 60cm classes, with more than 10 competitors in each class. It really is a day out for the family, with something for the little ones!

There are also home-baked goods, hot and cold food available to purchase on-site, so there’s no need to pack any sandwiches or flasks! The next summer show jumping date is this Sunday, July 4, with entries closing on Friday at 10pm. To qualify for the final, competitors must compete in six out of the nine shows to qualify (including the final). A Young Event Horse Championship Qualifier is taking place on Tuesday, July 6 at 9am, with entries closing on Sunday evening. All details and entries via the website: www.ardnacashel
