Sarahjane age 15 was competing in the 148cm competition where she won the Tony Carroll Snr. Cup. Sarah Jane was also placed 2nd on her second pony "Dylan". Her younger sister Julieann who is only ten years of age had a very successful day and was placed 1st and 3rd in the 128cm competition on her ponies "Red Apple" and "Flying Flash " Julieann was also placed in the 138cm competition on "Lady Loughlum". This was a great achievement as Julieann only took over the ride on this pony earlier in the year from her sister Sarah Jane. It was a real family affair as all training was supervised by their older sister, Lily who holds a B.H.S. teaching certification.
