DAFM Eventing Studbook Series

  • 27 June 2024, 14:51

Despite the best efforts of the Corrigan family to run the first leg of the DAFM Eventing Studbook Series at Lisgarvan, they were defeated by the weather and eventually had to cancel.  It was the Dulohery family at Kilguilkey who eventually kicked off the series on the 19th of May

Unfortunately, for similar weather-related reasons, this leg had to be abandoned following the EI115 cross country. The 7yr olds running over this course were able to complete, however the five- and six-year-olds only completed the first two phases before the event was discarded.

The winner of the 7yr old class on the day was Jamaica Rose (ISH) ridden by Jack O’Haire. The league points for the five- and six-year-olds were awarded to reflect the results following the dressage and showjumping phases.

The second leg of the series took place at Ballindenisk, and thankfully the weather was on side. This time it was the 2023 6yr old league winner, Strangford (ISH), ridden by Stephen Smith who came out on top of the 7yr old section.
