THERE was much excitement at the Coláiste Bhride Inter-schools Showjumping in Barnadown in the run up to the mid-term break.

Principal Linda Dunne said that the school was delighted to host this leg of the Equestrian Inter-schools League and that schools’ show jumping is continuing to go from strength to strength.

“The strength of inter-schools show jumping was very evident in Barnadown Equestrian Centre with 70 teams competing in the open, novice and primary competitions. It was refreshing to see so many young competitors back out again after the lengthy pandemic restrictions.

“Well done to all and congratulations to those who were in the ribbons,” she said.
