Ballendenisk International

Well the Fell family certainly excelled themselves this time!!
The placed looked amazing and the course could not have been better.
There was a star studded field of competitors and I am sure they were not disappointed with the event and facilities in Ballendenisk.
William Fox-Pitt, Zara Phillips, Gary Parsonage, Matthew Wright and Karin Donkers were amongst the overseas riders who chose to make the long trip over.
The Michael Leonard Memorial 5/6 year old championships were incorporated into the weekend which gave this class a real Championship feel and a great chance for these young horses to have a taste of an international atmosphere. It was our own Fernhill Ultimate that took the spoils in this class leading from the start with his stunning dressage test. He is a class act and just gets better with each outing. Infact three Fernhill residents were in the top placings with Deidre Lannigans Sea Top Boy just been pushed into third place by Louise Codd on the consistant Ballycree Milord. This was a great result for Deidre’s talented young horse who is really maturing now. Spirit In The Sky came in fourth and as we recently purchased him from Michael Leonards daughter Mary this was especially fitting.
