Since Killusty staged the first working hunter class to be held at a show in this country some thirty years ago, the working hunter division has become one of the most popular classes. There were large entries in both rings with courses designed by Tony Ennis.

The Londis Foodstore Starter Stake Championship was then judged in this ring with Claire Crawford's Ardfry Sarabi with reserve going to Martha McNamara's Warleigh Wishful Thinking.
