Continuing on from the success of the largest ever inter-schools showjumping league, The Meadows Equestrian Centre has launched the annual St Patrick’s Inter Schools Show on Friday, March 17.

This year’s inter-Schools show is going to be even bigger than ever with the continued sponsorship from TRI Equestrian and Baileys Horse feeds as well as having Lisburn Bowl on board as a brand new sponsor of the Tack & Turn out competitions treating the winners to vouchers to go bowling at their fantastic facility.

This annual inter-schools competition will see both teams and individuals from Primary and Secondary Schools taking part in this exciting schools event with the winners of this years open team class qualifying to compete in the main arena at the Balmoral show in May.

The show will kick off on Friday, March 17, in Arena 1 with the ever popular novice team class (85cm), followed by the open team and individual events (1m) and then the Premiere Individual class (1.10m) immediately after the open classes.

Arena 2 will start at 9am with the primary individual 50cm class followed by the primary team competition (70cm), the Primary individual (70cm) and then the novice individual competition (85cm).

As well as prizes on the day for each class there will also be prizes awarded by Lisburn Bowl for the best turned out and there will be spot prizes kindly sponsored by Baileys Horse feeds. Entries will close at 5pm on Tuesday, March 14.

All entries MUST be completed and prepaid online before the deadline.
