The recent leg of the Meadows SJI Horse Series took place during a very busy day on Saturday (May 25).

Playing host to Eventing Ireland, Pony Club and their regular unregistered jumping, all five arenas were in operation at the Embankment Road complex.

Recording a win in the 1.30m class, regular attender Tracey Gallagher had a busy day at the Meadows. Onboard her own ‘Autumn Air’, Gallagher stopped the clock in 48.76 ahead of her closest rival Chalotte Harding, who was just 0.06 seconds behind to settle for second place.

Show Jumping continues with the eagerly awaited three day Grand Prix Show running from 14-16 June.
