Sunday, April 19, saw a very good turnout for the first round of the Jump Challenge League 2015 at Mill Yard Equestrian Centre, Anahilt, Hillsborough.

A combination of showjumping, working hunter and cross country fences provided a challenging but enjoyable course which everyone rode very well.

Mill Yard would like to thank everyone who competed at and supported the event.

The Jump Challenge League continues on Sundays 17th May, 21st June, 19th July and 16th August.

Other upcoming events at Mill Yard include the Mini League Showjumping on Friday evenings throughout the summer, starting at 6pm sharp with cross poles followed by the 50cm, 60, 70 and 80cm League classes (allow half hour per class for start times), then 90cm+ anyone wishing to jump higher. (Please note there is no jumping on Friday 15th May).

The cross country course is open for schooling by appointment. There is a discounted rate of just £8 per horse for anyone wishing to school cross country on a Friday evening after their showjumping round.
