Stranraer & District Riding Club’s Showjumping Points League gathers pace as the season continues. The event was blessed with good weather and a fantastic team of helpers with Gillian and Caitlin taking on judging and commentating duties for the first time, ably assisted by Sheila, Rachael, Marie, Rachel, Debs, Joyce and Daniel all helping as the arena party.

Thanks to all who came along to compete, spectate and help - it was an enjoyable day.

The next event will be Combined Training including Dressage and Showjumping Points Leagues on 26th July followed by the Team Showjumping competition on 9th August.
