It didn’t feel like Summer with the torrential rain and hail stones we experienced early on Sunday morning for the Summer Show Jumping League at Deanes Equestrian Centre. Thankfully it passed and dried up just in time for the competition.
Glen and Vincent Coughlan were in action again this week on Charlie and both went clear much to the delight of mum Finula. The gang from Kay’s Equestrian in Fermanagh were also back with a large group of riders and they all went clear in the starter stakes. Well done to Amy Kelly , Hannah Jones, Amy Leigh Gallagher.
In the 40cms Class Ally McClay on Meenarillagh was unlucky not to go clear with a refusal on the 5th fence while Tracey Alcorn on Valentino was again in the rosettes.
In the 50cms Class Kathie Boyle on Uisce was joined by Anita Kelly on Rocky and the Kay’s Equestrian riders Sara Little on Iban and Melissa Dilworth on Robbie all picking up clear round rosettes.
The 60cms Class was the largest of the day and the clears were not easy the come by. Lauren Bradley on Jayzee picked up another clear round rosette to add to last weeks. She was closely followed by Emma Jane Mitchell on Rebel and Charlie Timony on Sandy. Emily Miller on Twinkle and Georgia Dilworth on Dillen were once again in the rosettes and added to the growing collection for the Kay’s Equestrian Group.
In the 70 cms Class Mona Vial on Rhodie was back in the saddle and had a great round to collect a clear round rosette. Lucy Stewart and the ever steady Dedo also went clear. Sarah Little on Iban completed her fourth class of the day and finished with a super clear round.
In the 80 cms Class brother and sister Aine Hunter on Moonlight Crystal and Patrick Hunter on Eurolady took on the course with a lovely display of riding and took home clear round rosettes. Catherine Gallagher on Dawn and Lucy Stewart on Dedo completed the course with a great display of riding.
In the 90cms Class Patrick Hunter again went clear and was joined by Finula Coughlan on Bambi. Charlie Vial and Aine Hunter were both unlucky with faults around the course.
In the 1m Class Amy McGarvey on Chamonix Supernova were out in the field jumping again after their epic fund raising trek from Malin to Mizen and picked up the only clear in the class.
