Fernhill Winners in Ballendenisk International

The International classes provided some great entertainment for the many spectators who chose to come to Ballendenisk to see the stars in action.
A great but long day of cross country on the Saturday provided plenty of thrills and spills for these spectators with some of the top riders coming to grief, leaving some of our Irish riders well in the shout for the prizes, especially when overnight rain made the show jumping arena very testing.
It was in fact Declan Cullen on his beloved stallion that took the top honours in the CCi 3 star class, it was great to see Tonto back in action after a lay off due to injury.
Zara was a popular winner in the CIC 3 star class and I am sure she accounted for many of the mass of young spectators over the weekend.
But in the Two Star sections the Fernhills were unbeatable!!
Mathew Wright took the CCI 2 star with the talented but quirky Fernhill Express, he ploughed on through the mud in the show jumping arena which caught out many competitors in every class, to finish on his dressage score.
I think everyone present was delighted for young Brian Morrison and Fernhill By Night when they Won the CIC 2 star class. Brian was standing in for regular jockey Julie O’Neill and I am sure she was not disappointed with his job. He meant business from day one posting a dressage score of 42.9 which got lots of oohs and ahhs from the crowd of spectators. Just a three time cross country and a great clear in the show jumping secured the class.
Luke Drea won the CCI 1 star class with his lovely mare Goreshill Pearl. No one begrudged Luke his win and it had been coming for sometime with this mare that is destined for greater things.
