Fine weather was the order of the day at Ecclesville’s Annual Summer Show on Sunday, July 28 and the courses built by Raymond Caldwell resulted in very exciting jump-offs, as the pony and horse riders competed to win the red ribbons.
The first jump-off of the day in the 128 Open Class was won by local girl Scarlett Knox riding Annie, they executed some great turns and won the class in style! The 148 Open Class was won Nadia Donnelly and Fainne who posted a time which could not be caught.
The Horse Open Class was won by Freya Sayle and Melissa, with Sandra Somerville and Chilled Magners taking the second place rosette.
The organisers would like to thank the competitors for supporting the show.
Thanks also go to Raymond Caldwell, course builder and to Jennifer Leonard who assisted in the judges’ box.
