Great turnout for
Portmore Arena Eventing
HERE was another great turnout for the Bluegrass
Arena Eventing at Portmore Equestrian Centre,
Aghalee on Sunday. Portmore welcomed two
foreign competitors - Anne Sophie Naz from
Switzerland and Pauline Stenz from Germany,
based with Hannah Patterson.
The course set by Rafael Suarez was very educational
for the younger horses, with plenty of help in the arena to
make sure everyone completed their course and, for the
more advanced, it was a definitely a great way to kick start
the eventing season.
The league continues for another two weeks, then the
final - competitors need to compete in three out of the five
rounds to qualify for the £1,000 prize fund in the final.
Jumping continues at Portmore with Horse and Pony
Training Shows on Saturdays and Arena Eventing on
Sundays and also the weekly Tuesday night training shows
continue starting at 7pm with 70cm.

WE at Old Mill Saddlery are proud
and excited to be a part of The
Complete Clinic (a biomechanical
assessment clinic for riders).
This will be held on Thursday,
February 7 at Old Mill Saddlery,
110 Larne Road, Ballycarry,
Carrickfergus, BT38 9JN.
The Clinic will be run by Jill
Crawford of Vet Physio N.I., who
is a Chartered Human, Horse
and Canine Physiotherapist, who
specialises in the treatment and
rehabilitation of human, equine
and canine patient’s across
Northern Ireland. She will be
joined by our very own Robert
Patton, who has over 30 years’
experience as a saddle fitter and
who is fully qualified with the
Society of Master Saddlers. Also
joining her will be Carolyn Mellor
from Vision Sport Horses, who is
a well renowned dressage coach
and competitor, having a number
of national championships
under her belt and producer
of international level dressage
This clinic is the ultimate
equestrian experience in which
the one-day event allows the
chance for horse riders to have
many assessments conducted
by the top in the industry using
the newest technology available,
in order to improve their riding
skills. Participants will take part
in a biomechanical assessment
using new on board sensor
software with Jill, a lesson with
leading coach Carolyn Mellor, and
a saddle fitting assessment with
The clinic’s aim is to review
the participant’s saddle fit,
which is carried out by Robert,
by reviewing the rider position
and performance when in the
saddle (using the new software
programme for on board
analysis). Participants will also
be provided with feedback during
the session from Jill and Carolyn
on how to implement changes
effectively, they will then be
provided with a tailored groundbased core exercise programme
to complete at home.
This is the first time this software
programme has been offered in
Ireland, it displays and records
real time posture readings, which
can then be used to correct
balance issues and achieve the
ideal riding position. This is the
perfect day for all equestrians
who are looking to improve their
riding and horse’s performance
before the competition season
The day will cost £90 per person,
with places being confirmed
on payment. There are limited
spaces available for this one-day
clinic, so get your space booked
as soon as possible for this
unmissable day.
