The inclement weather may have closed the airports at Shannon and Cork on Tuesday 17 November but the Half Bred Horse Breeders Society were very pleased to welcome those who made their way to the second qualifier for the Loose Jumping Championship at Kernans Equestrian Centre.
Once again a wide variety of interesting breeding lines were on display for the spectators who were treated to displays of excellent jumping.
The Society would like to thank the judge Norman Allen, Knockrath Stud, who generously gave up his time to support this event.
