The first of the Calgow Equestrian Summer Show Jumping was held on Tuesday evening.

There was a good turnout and a big welcome to lots of new ponies, horses and riders taking part as well as our regular competitors. This season there will be a league for the ponies and a 45cm class has been added which can be assisted but not lead rein which is a mix of X-poles and straights. Each week there will be a one-off medal for something different. This week it was for the best turned out horse or pony and rider. The winner was Jade Stewart on Shooting Star. She narrowly beat several others but the plaited and ribboned mane clinched the win. Atlanta Hill was a very close second. Other medals throughout the season will be for the oldest rider or even for the parent of a child competing,

In addition there will be two draws, each for £100 at the end of the season. Competitors who have entered on eight different evenings over the season (whether they are placed or not!) will have their names put in a hat. Enter 10 evenings and your name goes into the hat twice!
