It was a busy week in the Craig household as between them, mum Victoria and daughter Sarah competed, with great success on no less than four occasions over four disciplines at Ravensdale Lodge.

It was a busy week in the Craig household as between them, mum Victoria and daughter Sarah competed, with great success on no less than four occasions over four disciplines at Ravensdale Lodge.

It all started on Thursday morning when Victoria partnered Rocky clear over the unregistered 70cm class prior to the eight SJI registered classes at Ravensdale Lodge.

On Friday evening it was the turn of seven year old Sarah who went clear over the cross poles track in the Botanica International sponsored indoor horse and pony training league. Victoria was back for more with Rocky as the combination were only one of three combinations to go clear over the 85cm track at the Horse First sponsored indoor arena eventing league on Saturday.

Not content with that the partnership then went on to win Class 3 in the O’Reilly’s Wholesalers Newry indoor dressage league on Sunday finishing on a great score of 66.36%.

Show organisers put Rocky’s good run of form down to the time he spent stabled at Ravensdale Lodge as Victoria commuted daily from her base in Rathfriland, mind you Victoria would have probably bunked down beside Rocky given half a chance! Competitions continue this week with SJI registered show jumping on Thursday.

The Botanica International indoor horse and pony training league continues on Friday while arena eventing takes centre stage on Saturday with the Horse First sponsored indoor arena eventing league.
