Young riders battle it out for prizes at finale of Ecclesville Showjumping League

Thursday, 5 July 2018

THE final of the third of Ecclesville's Showjumping Leagues for 2018 was held on Friday night and it was again very competitive as the qualified combinations battled it out for the prizes.
With the Super League underway, the top six in each class could also win valuable points as at the end of 2018 in each class from 60cm through to 1.10cm a Perpetual Trophy will be awarded to rider and horse combination with the most points.
The spectators were treated to great jump-offs against the clock, as competitors twisted and flew round Raymond Caldwell's tricky courses.
Omagh Equestrian and Countrywear had also kindly sponsored the turnout prizes for the final - so this was an added bonus for the riders and grooms.
The 40cm class had two young riders, Cara Garrity and Scarlett Knox, eligible to take joint first place. Scarlett riding 'Chester' also won the first of the turnout prizes of the evening.
The winner of the 60cm was a delighted Sarah-Jane Sloane riding 'Lilley' and she also added another 10 points to her Super League tally, as she has now posted her third win in this class.
Tiana-Grace Abbott and 'Samsun' had a flawless and speedy round and claimed the winning rosette in the 70cm class.
