“It is with great disappointment that the Duggan Family announces today that the 2021 Millstreet International Horse Show CSI2* will not take place. Despite the pace of the vaccination rollout in Ireland and the resulting reduction in current infection rates, it is clear that the easing of lockdown measures will not proceed at a pace that will allow us to stage the August show to its traditional standards while complying with the current Government guidelines.
The fundamental principle of Millstreet’s long running success is the inclusivity it offers to one and all. The annual schedule of classes provides opportunities for horses/ponies and riders of all levels, ages and abilities.
We take our industry support responsibilities very seriously; events such as the Foal Auction, 3yo Horse and Pony Young Irelander, 4yo National Discovery Championships also for both horses and ponies, and many other unique Millstreet concepts contribute incalculably to Irish horse and pony breeders and producers. To stage a show without one or more of these elements or limiting participation would go against our “open door” values.” [read the full announcement on Millstreet.Horse]
