Thanks are extended to everyone who went along and supported both the dressage final and Christmas show – it is safe to say that the weather was definitely not on side, but it didn’t dampen the festive spirits and, just in time for Santa’s arrival, the rain stopped!

Thank you to Ann King of Equine Awards NI for sponsoring the stunning Christmas carriage which was turned out to perfection by L & M Carriage Driving, an absolute treat for everyone to watch and ride.

Ann also sponsored and wrapped all the gifts for the children.

Another huge hit among the young and older competitors was the ‘rodeo reindeer’, which was very kindly sponsored by John Healy from HealysHaylage. John was also Santa’s head elf for the day!

The fancy dress class was an absolute delight, very kindly judged by Lyn Hanvey. The effort that was put into the costumes was unbelievable. The winner received a beautiful sash kindly sponsored by Awardboard Rosettes and Trophies - Ireland.

Thank you to everyone who made the day possible by helping, dressage judge Emma Hobson, showjumping judge Heather Camlin and scribe Lara Camlin, arena party Lesley and Greg Wilson, photographers Ellie and Dean from Ellie Johnston photography, fantasy face painting, helpers Adele Huddleson, Charlotte Welsh, Kelly Kidd, Lyn Hanvey, John Healy, Lisa Rooney, James Wilson and, of course, Scott who kept everyone well fed! The organisers hope everyone had a great day!
