Dirraw Farm 7th July 2018

Set in the beautiful rolling countryside of Finvoy near Ballymoney sits Dirraw Farm the setting for an open performance event organised by the Irish Draught Horse Society NI. And what a setting it turned out to be. On a glorious sunny day there were 3 rings set out to the highest standard, ring 1 was for the ridden class, ring 2 working hunter and ring 3 the jump cross. Full credit and a slap on the back must go to Alan Campbell ( owner of Dirraw Farm ) and Paddy Treanor ( committee member IDHSNI ) on their imagination and skill on designing such a delightful course. To anyone who couldn't attend ,you missed a really good day out for both horse and rider.
A big cheer for committee members and volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure the smooth running of this wonderful event.
A very special thanks to our sponsors.
