On the 15th August, Armoy Community Association hosted the 11th Armoy Horse Show.
Due to the wet weather our normal venue was not suitable so it gave us great pleasure to support another worthy charity by holding the show at the RDA Coleraine.
With only a passing shower we had one of the best days in August and the many who attended had an enjoyable day and were rewarded by a high standard of showing and jumping. The judges were Chris Aikin and Michael McAfee.
Armoy Community Association would like to sincerely thank the judges, first aider Sheila Clark, the show jumping team Fiona Watt, Caroline Wharry and Melanie and Trevor Moorhead.
A spokesperson said: “We are also indebted to Jacqui McKinney and Ann Morrison and all the other volunteer helpers who ensured that everything ran so smoothly. A special word of thanks goes to the competitors who supported us and helped to make this event such a success. Photographs were kindly taken by Lyndon McKee from Relative Photography.
“This event is only possible with the kind support of our sponsors and Armoy Community Association are greatly indebted to Sheans Horse Farm, Richmond Agricultural Supplies, the Stokesbury Family, John Kilgore and Limepark Cottages.”
