THE summer show jumping season kicked off last weekend, with The Meadows Equestrian in Co Armagh playing host to the SJI National Grand Prix and the TRM/ HSI New Heights Champions Premier Series.

On Saturday, Donegal native Kenneth Graham claimed victory in the Henry Murray & Co sponsored SJI National Grand Prix. Riding George, Graham lodged the winning clear round in 38.41 seconds. Graham has only recently returned from a successful jumping tour in Oliva, Spain where he was competing in the three-star and the young horse classes.
