Rain drowned the chances of a cross country go as you please on Sunday 12th April, but thankfully the indoor facilities at Laurel View meant that the Easter Show was able to run unhindered.
A great crowd of competitors turned out to have a go at the show jumping and obstacle courses. All the competitors enjoyed the little Easter treats from the overflowing Easter basket. While those that earned themselves a top three spot in their class went home with a shiny trophy to remind them of the Easter Show 2015.
The Spring Pounds for Points Show Jumping League comes to its finale on Wednesday 29th April, with the next show jumping event on the calendar scheduled for Sunday 31st May. This competition simply titled “Just Jumping” offers cashback for clear, winner goes free! Terms and conditions apply. More details available on www.laurelview.co.uk or ring 028 9083 0649.
