Yet another large crowd descended on Connell Hill Equestrian Centre on Monday 24 November to view the twenty eight horses who turned up to take part in the third qualifying round of the Half Bred Horse Breeders Society three year old loose jumping championship.

The society is of course indebted to Eamon Rice who had the difficult task of judging these talented three year olds.

Marks were close and resulted in 14 horses going through to join the other two qualified groups in the final which will take place at Portmore Equestrian Centre, Aghalee on Wednesday 3rd December commencing at 7.30pm.

These talented horses represent a broad section of interesting top breeding lines and should provide a showcase not to be missed by buyers and spectators.

The society wishes good luck to all the finalists taking part.
