Riders step up to the mark in Ards league

Wednesday, March 4, saw the penultimate round of the winter league Show Jumping at Ards Riding Club.

Although the senior open riders were absent, the standard was high as the course becomes progressively more technical as the league nears the final.

All the participants enjoyed the challenge set by course builder Simon Jackson.

Lessons with Carolyn Mellor on 28th February were well attended and very benefical to both horse and rider. The club offers its thanks to Carolyn.

Tonight (Wednesday 11th March) is the second round of the Dressage, followed by the third round of the Working Hunter on 18th March.
