Northern Ireland Working Hunter AssociationAims Of The Association

In 1980 a group of keen pony exhibitors met at Millbrook Lodge, Ballynahinch to form the Northern Ireland Working Hunter Committee with the idea of encouraging the production and showing of working hunter ponies in Northern Ireland.
The first committee was under the chairmanship of Jim Lilley, with Jan Joyce as Secretary and Sidney McIvor as Treasurer
Our ponies took part in national and international competitions, representing Northern Ireland in England, Scotland, Wales and Republic of Ireland and were always successful
In 1985 the group became the Northern Ireland Working Hunter Association with 150 members and a full winter and summer programme for both ponies and horses. Recognising that dressage was an essential part of good horsemanship, in 1989 the Association introduced the Blue Ribbon Dressage League which still continues to this day. We celebrated our 20th anniversary in the year 2000, a lively group with a membership of over 400 and a horse and pony registration of 630
Today the Association is one of the most active equestrian organisations in Northern Ireland, providing a full calendar of events all year round and our three day Championship Show at the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society Showgrounds, Balmoral in July is the highlight of the year
