The Dublin Horse Show - what other event sees an affluent, leafy, city suburb transformed into a veritable hub of equine endeavours?

Horse Show week is a week when the crude melody of irate car-horns is overshadowed by the far sweeter tune of rhythmic hoof beats. Since 1868, the Dublin Horse Show and the RDS have attracted the cream of Ireland’s equine talent, with both horses and riders vying for a coveted red ribbon. Furthermore, the introduction of international competitions to the show in 1926 secured its spot on the global competitor’s radar.
