AS the weather played havoc with fixtures over recent weekends, the Equijump Ltd Pony Spring Tour 2020 was delayed by a week, with the first round taking place at Banner Equestrian in Ennis last Saturday. A popular league on the national calendar, competitors were out in force and to support new sponsors, Equijump.

In the 128cm 1m division, last year’s winner Senan Reape got his season off to a good start as he secured the opening win. Riding Mickybo, he galloped home with a clean sheet in 29.83 seconds. Also demonstrating similar form exhibited in her 2019 season was Alanna Fagan who delivered a clear with Kiltormer Ruby in 31.91 for the runner-up place. Taking third place was Ruben Foley who crossed the line with nothing to add with the Silver Legend in 32.79. A clear round from Harry Rush and Tower View Lady in 33.31 saw them take fourth. Senan Reape put in another clear round with Brookshill Orla in 34.55 for fifth ahead of Galway’s David Egan who recorded one-time fault with Dromore Hill Boy when clocking 37.05.
