Mount Juliet Estate has signed up to a new three year partnership as Luxury Destination Partner of the Dublin Horse Show getting underway this week at the RDS.
They join Failte Ireland, Land Rover, Qatar Airways, Longines, Deloitte and others in a very international roll call of sponsors of the Show.
Mount Juliet has a long equine history and will also be the title sponsor of “The Accumulator” international show jumping class for the 2017 Dublin Horse Show.
“We’re delighted to have Mount Juliet Estate as sponsors of this great competition for the next three years,” said Michael Duffy, CEO of the RDS.
“They have already shown their commitment to Irish equestrianism through the development of their superb facilities in Thomastown and this sponsorship confirms their intent.”
“The RDS continues to operate the Show on a not-for-profit basis in order to make it the best show possible for the sport horse industry, so sponsorship such as this is vital for the financial well-being of the event.”
Mount Juliet recently refurbished its equestrian centre that has pasture, park and woodland nearby. The centre has two all-weather arenas, a full set of FEI approved show jumps and a 30-acre cross country course, in addition to trails spread across the 500-acre estate.
“We are deeply proud of our equestrian history, with references to the great champion horses born and bred on the estate to be found everywhere throughout the hotel,” added General Manager of Mount Juliet Estate, Christine Murphy.
“That equestrian tradition continues today, and our excellent facilities and exceptional state of the art Equestrian Centre mean that horses are still synonymous with Mount Juliet Estate.”
“Sponsoring The Accumulator at the Dublin Horse Show for the next three years is a symbol of our ongoing appreciation for all aspects of Irish Equestrianism. We are delighted to be part of the Dublin Horse Show, a classic Irish sporting, social and family event.”
2017 will be the Dublin Horse Show’s 144th edition and it continues to be one of Ireland’s largest sporting, social and family events.
During the five days of the Dublin Horse Show, August 9-13, over 1,500 horses and ponies compete in 132 competitions and classes with close to €1,000,000 in prize money.
