SARAH Ennis has been a staunch supporter of the Stepping Stones to Success League since it was first established by Orla Roche and Pat Peare at Wexford Equestrian and this year brought six horses to each of the four assessment days from her Stellor Sport Horses yard in Batterstown, Co Meath.

Her efforts paid off handsomely on Thursday when she won both the four-year-old and five-year-old finals and their corresponding Leagues and picked up a number of placings as well. “I had an amazing day and I’m delighted for my owners and the team at home,” said Ennis who has been juggling young horses, competing on the national and home international eventing circuit while also taking part in Horse Sport Ireland’s High Performance squad training.
