Millstreet Horse Show returns to the international stage next week after a 12-year hiatus, with its popularity as strong as ever.
Boasting a prizefund upwards of €200,000, nine international classes, three Rolex ranking contests and competitions in every grade imaginable, unmatched facilities, not to mention the famed Green Glens atmosphere, it is no surprise to hear that families are travelling from the four provinces, complemented by competitors from seven nations.
“We have 1,200 stables booked out and we are still short. It is close to uncontrollable,” said Noel C Duggan yesterday.
“We have riders from seven nations, if not eight, for example Britain, France, Italy, Canada and Denmark. This is the only three-star international show in Ireland and there will be more entries at this show than in any four-star show in Europe.” …. this is an extract from a much longer article in today’s Irish Examiner
The Millstreet International Horse Show is on from August 7th to 13th
