If you like horses, you won’t want to miss the biggest equestrian event of the year, which is once again taking place at the RDS in Dublin. Featuring the best in national and international equestrian competitions, along with live music, entertainment, art, fashion, shopping, and gourmet food, this is an event that has something for everyone. It promises to be fun for all the family, with a Kids’ Zone to keep children busy with pony rides, inflatables, face painting, magic shows, and Billy Bubbles.
The Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show is centred around the show-jumping competitions, with €940,000 up for grabs in prize money across the five days at races such as the Longines International Grand Prix, the Land Rover Puissance, and the Furusiyya FEI Nations’ Cup. It’s an event worth dressing up for, especially on Ladies Day on Thursday August 7th, where prizes will be given out for ‘best dressed lady’, ‘most creative hat’, and ‘most colourful outfit’, while the gentlemen also get a look-in with a prize for the ‘best dressed man’.
