The final of another very successful Ecclesville’s Showjumping Leagues was held on 6 March and it was again very competitive, as the numerous qualified combinations battled it out for the prizes.

The spectators were treated to great displays of showjumping as the competitors twisted and flew round Raymond Caldwell’s courses.

Omagh Equestrian and Countrywear had sponsored the Turnout Prizes for the final, so this was an added bonus for the riders and grooms.

The 40cm class had seven young riders sharing first place and Caitlin Kelly and Zack won the first of the Turnout Prizes of the evening.

The winner of the 60cm was Nadia Donnelly with her lovely pony, Belle. The 70cm red ribbon winner was Joseph Owens riding Annie Mac, they had an amazing double clear with extremely tight turns.

The 80cm class was won by the very consistent Caoimhe Hegarty and Buster. Roisin Donnelly and Bracken Dancer had a great jump off to secure the 90cm class.

Jeni Lyons and Venus took the top spot in the 1m, while Roisin Donnelly picked up her second win of the evening in the 1.10 class riding Ria to round off a very entertaining evening of jumping.

The organisers would like to take this opportunity thank all the many competitors who supported this league. Also thanks to Raymond Caldwell, course builder, assisted by Malvern Moore, to Rachel Magee who assisted in the judges’ box and to Omagh Equestrian and Countrywear for sponsoring the Turnout prizes.

The next events for the Ecclesville team will be Cashjumping Ireland Shows on Sunday 22 March and Sunday 29 March starting at 10am, and the next League is scheduled to start on 27 March. For further details please contact Sandra on 07990541966 or Ecclesville on 028 82840591.
