Excitement at Wexford Equestrian Centre as Annabel Shields Clinches Victory in 135 TRM®️ | SJC Spring Tour

On March 2nd, we headed down to Wexford Equestrian Centre for the fourth leg of the TRM®️ | SJC Spring Tour. With a generous prize purse of €3000 up for grabs, anticipation was high as 28 riders geared up to tackle the  course. The first round, comprising of fences 1 to 12, proved to be a test with a tight time allowed of 81 seconds. 12 combinations managed to produce a clear first round but 5 of these clear rounds incurred one time penalty , narrowing the jump off down to 7 combinations.

First to go was Annabel Shields riding Creevagh Carisma delivering a clear round in 34.35 seconds. This proved to be unbeatable and she took first position. Creevagh Carisma is by Camino de Haar Z out of Creevagh Duca Di Clover and is owned by Annabel. This was the pairs second time winning a leg of the TRM®️ | SJC Spring Tour having previously won it in Jag Equestrian Centre.
