WEEK four of the Summer Show jumping League at Ardnacashel, Comber was hotly contested and, despite the showers, spirits were high. Home-made hot food and buns were once again available from Ella’s Kitchen, with safety procedures and social distancing in place for all competitors.
A huge contingent of young riders turned out for the cross-pole class, giving great hope for the future of show jumping!
The afternoon saw some highly competitive sport, with well produced horses and ponies showing their increased fitness after a quiet Spring season.
Online entries for week five of the league are now open at Ardnacashelequestrian.co.uk/ enter-online.
