Lusks set to host final Balmoral ‘Star’ qualifier

THE final qualifier for Balmoral’s ‘Star of the Future’ championship takes place on Sunday, April 10th, at Lusk Equestrian while the first of four qualifying rounds for this year’s Stepping Stones To Success League at Wexford Equestrian will be staged on Wednesday next, March 30th. The remaining legs will take place on the following Wednesdays – April 6th, 13th and 20th – with the final scheduled for Tuesday, April 26th.

Each qualifier will follow the usual format of two classes, sponsored by Childeric Saddles, for four and five-year-old young event horses with documented pedigrees. This will be followed by the EquiJump event pony class for 138cms to 148cms ponies aged four to six; adults may ride in this class. The Treo Eile-sponsored thoroughbred class for horses of any age, raced or unraced, will round off each day’s proceedings.
