Strule Valley Riding Club held an indoor two-phase show recently in Ecclesville, Fintona.

Emily Hopton-Brown and My Lucky Day were the winners of the 60cm class. Melissa Dilworth and Poppy claimed the 70cm crown while Mandy McQuade and Rosie took the honours over 80cm.

There was double delight for Enda Friel and Bob as they had a successful show winning both the 90cm and 1 metre classes.

Organisers would like to thank all those who came along to compete.

The club would also like to thank Raymond Caldwell for building a flowing course, Chris Bogle for judging, Sean Molloy for providing refreshments and to anyone else who helped in any way.

Thanks also to the sponsors Bailey’s Horse Feeds, The Village Inn Killyclogher and Craigantlet House Stables for the prizes for first place.
