IT was a busy weekend for the Napiers of Hazeldene, Ballynahinch, competing at the Eventing Ireland event at Necarne on Saturday, then straight in at the deep end first thing on Sunday morning to run a two-phase competition, where 96 competitors took part!
The rain held off and everyone enjoyed a good day’s sport. Huge thanks are extended to everyone who helped in the running of event.
Riders enjoyed a full length track similar to that of the Eventing Ireland competition two weeks previous.
The three classes were well supported and the 75cm proved popular with 45 runners!
