The College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE), along with The Irish Draught Horse Society Ltd of Northern Ireland are holding a demonstration evening to guide people through the upcoming Working Hunter process with some emphasis on the Irish Draught Performance class at Balmoral show.
The evening will cover all aspects of working hunter classes and will educate people on how to prepare their horses for the show ring in the weeks prior to the show, what is expected on the day of the show including what to wear, how to present your horse and what the judge is looking for.
The demonstration will include both the ridden and in hand phase and there will be a number of demonstration riders and horses. The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions throughout the session.
The evening will take place in the Antwerp arena at Gransha Equestrian Centre, Bangor on Tuesday, February 23, where Adrienne Stuart will provide the training.
The demonstration is open to everyone and is free to attend. Doors open at 7pm and the demonstration will start at 7.30pm. Refreshments will be available to purchase. Please bring a chair to sit in the arena. Everyone welcome.
