Horse Show vic­tim of hor­rific weather

Bray People - - Loreto (bray) Debs Ball -

OR­GAN­IS­ERS AND show jump­ing com­peti­tors were left bit­terly dis­ap­pointed last week­end as the New­cas­tle Horse Show was can­celled.

The de­ci­sion was made last Wed­nes­day when or­gan­is­ers be­gan to stake the field in or­der to rope the arena’s and found that the ground was too wa­ter­logged for the show jump­ing spec­ta­cle to take place.

The ad­verse weather con­di­tions that have hit Wick­low have been blamed for the can­cel­la­tion with the field at Bal­ly­money Park Stud in Kil­bride al­ready wa­ter-logged and fear of more heavy down­pours over the week­end.

Or­gan­is­ers of the event hope to hold a Golf Clas­sic as soon as pos­si­ble as an­other way to raise funds for the char­ity.

The New­cas­tle Show has been run­ning for 52 years and this year’s event was to be tele­vised on Sky Sports.
