The Meadows Equestrian Centre

Working Hunter Qualification Success at Meadows EC

Having avoided the snowfall that blanketed several other parts of the province, the Meadows Equestrian Centre hosted their first unregistered Showjumping and working hunter days following the success of the 2019 Flexi Eventing Series.

A beautiful morning welcomed those who made the trip to the Meadows Equestrian complex.  The unregistered had a busy day with almost 100 entries passing through the arena, whereas up in arena 3, riders from all areas attended to the Working Hunter competition on a quest to pick up those all important qualifications for the Northern Ireland Festival held in Cavan Equestrian Centre in the coming months. 

Under the watchful eye of judge Noeleen Mayberry, riders were tested over a variety of fences designed by in house designer Aaron McCusker. 

Gearing up for busy few weeks ahead, the Meadows will play host to a variety of competitions over the next few weeks. This coming weekend will see the the annual St Patrick’s Interschools with RUAS Interschools Qualifier take place on 16th March, this is followed by the third leg of the TRI Equestrian Pony Spring Tour on Saturday 23rd, this will be joined with Unregistered jumping in Arena 3.  Saturday 30th March sees the  start of the SJI Horse Spring Series and unregistered , with the National Pony Spring Tour on Sunday 31st March.
