On Wednesday, November 15, Mossvale Equestrian Centre saw the second qualifying round of the Half Bred Horse Breeders Society’s Three Year Old Loose Jumping Championship.

The judge was Lucy Buchanon and the society would like to thank Lucy and is most appreciative of her generousity and the time she gave up in supporting this event.

An interesting list of stallions and breeding lines were on show.

The HBHBS is a non-profit making society whose objective is to improve the knowledge of all aspects of horse breeding and to promote the success of Sport Horses in Northern Ireland with a band of volunteers without whom this occasion would not be possible.

Also thanks to John Gibson of Sporting Image NI for his photographic coverage of the event and also to Dromhowen Stud for the donation of the rugs to the winners.

The final qualifying round is scheduled to take place at Connell Hill Equestrian Centre on Wednesday, November 29, with the final at Portmore on Wednesday, December 13.
