As the Ulster Region TRI Equestrian Spring Pony Series reached the half way stages recently, a very successful weekend was had by many Ulster Region competitions with the same riders winning both the top height classes of their respective pony categories.
Commencing the ‘doubles’ Cavan Equestrian Centre’s Camryn Clarke took the 128 Under 10 classes by storm. On board PARC Crème Brûlée, Clarke was the runaway winner being the only rider to have recorded a time under the 30 second mark in the William Brown designed course. The Cavan schoolboy then travelled to Randalstown Co. Antrim where he also took the honours with Pepsi Mac.
It was a successful weekend for Omagh rider, Niamh McEvoy. Celebrating her recent sponsorship with TRI Equestrian NI and the Meadows Equestrian Centre, the talented 12 year old not only took two top classes over the weekend, but four! Winning both 128 1m with her mother’s Sparkling Majestic Caeser and the RDA Coleraine 138 1.10m with Edentrillick Jazz, whilst winning the Connellhill leg onboard Glenford Clausa.
To add to her back-to-back 148 1.20m wins, Eve Donnelly went one better by making sure she achieved the double with the same pony Dr Spot. The Tyrone rider maintained her consistency in the competition to be the only rider to make it through the Nigel Jess and Colm Quinn designed course faultlessly with her second pony also.
Not to be beaten by the girls, Donegal rider Donal O’Connor continued his domination of the Children on Horses by winning both 1.10 and 1.20 at both venues. Ensuring he takes maximum points forward in the series O’Connor won both classes with ‘Claggan Dark Warrior’ in the Causeway Coast Arena, Coleraine and ‘Ben’s Beauty’ in the Connellhill leg.
