The very first qualifier for Dublin horse show was held 2 weeks ago at Scarteen in county Limerick.
It was the very first event for the newly amended Young Event Horse Series but everything ran really smoothly with the dressage followed straight away with a round of 8 showjumps and onto a derby track. For the 4 year olds it was 1metre in height and the 5 year olds were 1.10cm and the derby had ditches, skinnys, up and off a bank, a sunken road and a jump into a water splash followed by a gallop to finish. Then they were walked and trotted up in hand around a triangle to be judged on their type, conformation and paces.
And guess what our beautiful 4 year old the chestnut gelding by Newmarket Venture ridden by Emily Corbett stole the show and came 1st!
And Smokie our amazing 5 year old also ridden by Emily came in 2nd just behind last years dublin winner of the 4 year olds.
We are so excited to have such lovely horses and to be showing them at Dublin, the biggest horse show in the calendar!!!!
