A fitting finale to Ecclesville league

THE final of the Ecclesville Spring Showjumping League was held on Friday 2 March and with 105 competitors jumping from 6.15pm to the wee small hours.

As anticipated, the qualified combinations twisted and flew round Raymond Caldwell’s course.

The deserving winner in the 60cm class was Naomi Connell riding Firefly. The red ribbon in the 70cm class was awarded to Rebecca McClean and Penny.

One of the most hotly contested classes was 80cm and with Katie Conlon riding Sharon’s Choice and Aoife Owens riding Indian Spirit stopping the clock in exactly the same time of 23.20 they shared the top spot. Aoife was delighted as this was her last competition on her coloured pony, Indian Spirit.

Katie Conlon and Sharon’s Choice continued their fine form and won the 90cm class. Local girl, Justine Lyons, was the very popular winner of the 1m class riding Ever So Clever.

The final class of the day, the 1.10, went to Stephen Grieve riding Herbie.

All the qualified combinations received prizes at the final, courtesy of sponsors Drumnakilly Supplies.

The organisers would like to thank the many competitors who supported this league. Also sincere thanks to Malvern Moore and Pamela Caldwell, who assisted Raymond Caldwell with the course building, and to Joan Blair who assisted in the judge’s box.
