Showjumping enthusiasts who travelled to the Causeway Coast Community Showjumpers opening show of the new season were delighted to avail of the excellent facilities at the Coleraine Riding for the Disabled Centre.
There was a good entry for the earlier classes but no doubt due to the Balmoral Show Qualifier at Cavan the entry in the larger classes was low.
Course designers David and Sylvia Nicholl from Antrim made good use of the excellent range of jumps available at the Centre ensuring that all classes were keenly contested and produced some exciting showjumping.
