ELITE showjumper Portia Howard will be demonstrating her riding skills at a Yarmouth equestrian centre this week.

A European championship silver medallist Portia, from Cantley, is holding a showjumping clinic at Humberstone Farm on Thursday.

The event is a chance for aspiring showjumpers to learn and develop new skills, whether riding their own horses or watching the action from the spectator area.

The equestrian centre opened almost a year ago and has recently been featured in a double-page spread in Horse and Hound magazine.

Hosting showjumping, dressage and dog agility events, it includes a floodlit indoor arena and outdoor warm-up area.

Humberstone Farm is reached off the A12 next to Broadland-Great Yarmouth Rugby Club.

The showjumping clinic starts at 4pm followed by a demonstration by Portia from 6pm.

Tickets cost £15 for participants or £5 for spectators. Under-18s are to receive one free adult spectator pass. To book a place or for more information, call Sue on 07836 276290.
