AS one of the most popular equestrian venues in the country, Cavan Equestrian Centre is a place that needs a lot of organising and the person ensuring it all runs smoothly is Natalie Dempsey (née Clarke), daughter of Mervyn Snr and Pauline Clarke.

Cavan Equestrian Centre opened 37 years ago in 1983 as a riding school and host of horse and pony sales. In 2019, they celebrated 25 years as a sales venue and 25 years of international horse shows.
