This was the first year that Mossvale had held the community show and they hope there is plenty more to come. A great day’s fun was had by all.
The car park was filled to the brim with an extra field having to be opened for the cars to park. It was great to see the ‘Old Gymkhana’ style show back.
Mossvale Riding Club would like to thank Dromara Village Festival Committee for giving them the ‘reins’ to run the show which turned out a super success; to Banbridge District Council for part funding on the day; Raymond, Shirley and Nigel Jess; Joe Moore catering; Ambutran Medical; Horseworld NI; Hollys Horse Haven and Pony Paps photography; Malachy and Connor Casement for judging the show classes; and finally a big thank-you to Yvette Truesdale for her fabulous display on her horse ‘Has To Be Fun’ and the club’s own members - without you all they couldn’t have done it!
