SUNDAY December 30 saw Lime Park Equestrian hold their Annual Christmas Show. As Lime Park had been working on the refurbishment of their outdoor arena they had no show jumping league in November, but with completion of work just before Christmas, it was in time to do a show over the Christmas Holidays.
Everyone was impressed with the outdoor and its new all weather, fibre surface, with new fencing, lights, etc. The indoor arena has also has had the fibre treatment, much to the delight of the riders, and even more to the horses and ponies who glided over the fences.
Courses were designed and built by Mickey McCann and his side kick Katy Connor. Thanks to them both for their hard work.
The next Show Jumping date is the start of the League on Sunday January 13, following on with Sunday 20th & 27th with the final on Sunday 3rd February. Competitions are Beginners / Warm up (which is suitable for lead rein or beginners or a warm up round) followed by 50cms, 65cms, 80cms and 90cms Ponies. Horses start at approx 2.30pm (depending on pony entries) with 70cms, 80cms, 90cms, 1.00mtr, 1.10mtr and higher if the demand is there.
