The final of the second of Ecclesville’s Showjumping Leagues for 2018 was held on 27 April and it was again very competitive, as the qualified combinations battled it out for the prizes.
With the 2018 Super League underway, the top six in each class also won valuable points, as at the end of 2018, in each class from 60cm through to 1.10cm, a perpetual trophy will be awarded to rider and horse combination with the most points.
The spectators were treated to great displays of showjumping as the competitors twisted and flew round Raymond Caldwell’s tricky courses! Omagh Equestrian and Countrywear had also kindly sponsored the Turnout Prizes for the Final, so this was an added bonus for the riders and grooms.
The winner of the 60cm was Sarah-Jane Sloane riding Lilley and she was also awarded the Turnout Prize for her beautifully groomed pony.
The 70cm class was won by Lucie-Anne Abbott riding the very speedy Louie. Zara Keys and Buster then won the 80cm class with a very impressive jump-off round.
Enda Friel and Bob picked up the red ribbon in the 90 cm class, with Nadia Donnelly and Fonya a very close second.
Emma Mooney and Barney had a very successful evening picking up first place in both the 1m and 1.10m classes and also gained valuable Super League points in both these classes.
The Super League for 2018 is looking very interesting after 2 Leagues! But with three more leagues scheduled for 2018, the race for the podium finishers is still “game on”!!
The organisers would like to take this opportunity thank all the many competitors who supported this league. Also sincere thanks to Raymond Caldwell, Course Builder, assisted by Malvern Moore, to Jennifer Leonard who assisted in the Judges box and to Omagh Equestrian and Countrywear for sponsoring the Turnout prizes.
