Megan and Jocelyn reign supreme at Hagans Croft WH League

Saturday 5th November saw the final leg of Hagans Crofts working hunter league.

This was a well supported four week league where competitors got the opportunity to ride the challenging course of rustic fences which was built slightly more challenging each week, and asked plenty of questions for horse and rider. This league has been great for those who are wishing to take part in the NIF at Cavan, with the horse and pony classes being qualifiers for this prestigious event in 2023.

The final week was dominated by those who had qualified for the league placings. Judge Conor O'Hare had a few hard decisions to make within the horse championship. However out on top with Horse League Champion was Megan Norton and Hathaway. Horse league reserve champion was awarded to Amy Griffith and Carrie. Both competitors have been supporting the league throughout and therefore have been working hard towards gaining points and forging their place within this league to earn their league sashes and trophies. A delighted Jocelyn Hutchinson and her pocket rocket 'Minion' were consistently brilliant throughout the four week league, coming home with the pony champion rosette week after week. With a foot perfect championship show finished off with a fabulous gallop down the long side Jocelyn and 'Minion' took home the league champion pony sash and trophy.Along side Kerry McGrady on her striking dun gelding, Fonzie were delighted with their pony league reserve champion sash and trophy.

Hagans Croft would like to thank everyone who supported the final week of their four week working hunter league and NIF qualifiers. Thanks are extended to judge Conor O'Hare, scribe Kristina and all the stewards and arena party for making the event run so smoothly.
