Balmoral Success at Young Event Horse Qualifier in Meadows EC

The Meadows Equestrian Centre  played host to the second qualifier for Young Event Horses.  With the class divided into two sections for four and five year olds respectively, the competition is run in the same format as the equivalent classes in Dublin, under the watchful eye of judges in dressage (flatwork), Showjumping and confirmation phases. 


In the 4 year old section, it was Colin Halliday that led the way with 'GHS Calexico' by Van Gogh, followed closely by Emma Jackson with the OBOS Quality 004 gelding 'Mr Quality Cruz'.  Judges in the 5 year old section had a tough decision with some many nicely produced horses on display, after totting up the scores David O'Connor with 'Kylestone Carrick Prince' by Carrick Diamond Lad.


Riders looking to qualify should note that the next qualifier, will now be held in Gransha Equestrian on Tuesday 16th April 2019 , entry  must be made online via
