Huntchase goes down a storm at Mossvale

MOSSVALE Riding Club’s annual huntchase was held on Saturday April 2 at Mossvale Equestrian Centre Dromara.

The event was very kindly sponsored by Hazeldene Farm Feeds in Saintfield. Five teams took up the challenge and the competitors had some craic with fences with dogs ,pigs, monkeys, sound effects and, of course, the big water jump.

A few riders were very close to getting wet, but young Shannon Clingan showed them all how it was done. She did all she could to hold on but ended up very wet!

Teams 1-3 each received a prize of a bag of feed, as did those placed first to third in the individual competition thanks to Hazeldene Farm Feeds.

Many thanks go to everyone that gave up their time to build the course, provide materials etc. and to the Jess family for all their support in running the event.
