Border Districts Showjumping Club stages pop-up event

It may have been a last-minute idea but it didn’t stop keen riders jumping at the chance to get some competition practise.

Border Districts Showjumping Club held a pop-up show on Saturday, October 8 after a string of cancelled showjumping classes at agricultural shows due to continued wet weather.

The “no frills” event – minus ribbons but with prize money up for grabs – was well-supported with 46 riders and more than 100 horses.

Spokesperson Jess Bertram said the last-minute event’s popularity showed the importance of shows for riders. Results included:
