Liz Cherry showed the rest how to do it in the Jump Cross at Lisbane Farm.

She took all the direct routes to finish fastest time and clear all the way in the 1m class with Monty Miller. Runner up was Lauren Johnston riding Todd, with a very happy Helen Pearson Murray finishing third with Bambi.

Co Down Hounds Huntsman Ian Donoghue was in fourth place riding an impressive four year old Happy Days, with Peter Murdock finishing fifth on board Dun and Dusted.

Sophie Price was on top form to score yet another win in the 90cm with her super mare Molly. Second place went to Charlotte Smiley on Comet and in third place Evan Hobson riding Promise Me. Helen Pearson Murray was in fourth place with her other horse Mollie, while CAFRE student Caitlin Stuart finished fifth riding Johnny Boom.

The 75cm class was as always, highly competitive and great fun, with the top three places divided by just one second, and all three ponies from the same lorry. In first place this week was Meghan Murray riding Annie, with Leo McGarry and Savannagh in second place and Alex Turley riding Summer to third. Nicola Henderson was delighted to finish fourth with Boski on her first visit with Bartley Murphy finishing fifth on Clarcey.

Organisers wish to thank sponsor Kinsfield Haylage, along with their team of helpers and photographers Anne and Eva.

Last two dates of the current Jump Cross series are 4 March and 18 March.
