Glenlola Collegiate School (Bangor) is, once again, pleased to announce that the 6th Ulster Schools’ Derby competition will take place on Thursday 21 June 2018 at Gransha Equestrian Centre, Bangor.
Open to all full-time students, under the age of 19, entries are welcome from primary schools, post-primary schools and further education colleges. Four classes will be held: Primary Individual, Newcomer, Novice and Open. Both the Novice and Open classes will have individual and team competitions. Prizes will also be awarded for Individual turn out in each of the four classes.
The course will consist of show jumps, working hunter fences and portable/solid cross country obstacles. It will mostly be contained within an outdoor, all-weather arena although some of the course may require obstacles to be jumped in an adjoining grass paddock.
We are once again delighted to have several local sponsors on board. These include Autokleen, Noble Restaurant (Holywood), finance firm Brewin Dolphin (Belfast) and U-Hire (NI). Rosettes will once again be sponsored by Jim Devonport butchers (Donaghadee).
As this event is a fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support, an Apple ipod Shuffle (or similar) will be awarded to the competitor who raises the most sponsorship money.
Catering will be available.
Entry forms are being sent to Schools but if you do not receive one and would like to compete, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Further details can also be found on the School’s website www.glenlola.net. The closing date for entries is Friday 15 June 2017. Follow us on Twitter @UlsterSchDerby.
