Action in the Connolly’s Red Mills Showjumpers Club Spring Tour moved up a notch last weekend as the three main contenders in the league dominated the line-ups in a double bill of the series. Two rounds took place last Sunday at Ballinamona in Waterford and in Portmore in Lurgan.

At Ballinamona Equestrian Centre, the reigning champion, Liam O’Meara made up for lost ground when taking his second win of the series. Riding Helen Sheridan’s nine-year-old, Jacomar-sired, gelding Curraghgraigue Jack Take Flight, the Tipperary rider took the win by just fractions of a second when he clocked the fastest clear of the 10-way jump-off in 26.72s. This combination had led the victory lap two week’s ago in Ravensdale.
