HUGE congratulations to our ultra-talented young pony show jumping team who won team gold in Poland just as went to press yesterday evening - what an achievement to crown a brilliant week after our eventing riders earlier won team silver and bronze at the hugely competitive FEI European Championships. We are so proud of you all!

Many congratulations to all the medal winners, their families, coaches, and Horse Sport Ireland. We will have full reports in next week’s issue on yesterday’s thriller (see also international pages 72-73 for eventing medal reports).

Also achieving new heights was Kildare’s Mikey Pender who rode HHS Los Angeles to become the new National Champions (see show jumping pages 80-81).

It’s all go on the busy equestrian circuit as we look forward to the action from the World Championships in Denmark and here at home, at Millstreet International Horse Show and the CPBS Annual Show in Clifden.

Dublin Horse Show preview issue

Next Saturday (August 13th), we publish our popular 40-page pullout 2022 Dublin Horse Show Guide, which will be FREE inside The Irish Field.

It’s packed with interviews, advertising, and previews to the upcoming thriller that is shaping up to be this year’s Dublin Horse Show (August 17th-21st).

Get ‘Dublin’ ready – it’s just around the corner!
