“We have a massive picnic area amidst our 200-acre venue and we are encouraging people to bring their pet dogs along to roam the countryside here and take part in our fun dog shows and other events.”
“We have a great shopping village with top country brands and artisan food stalls so mums and dads can kick back and relax whilst the kids avail of fairground attractions and pony rides.”
“There’s also the serious sporting side to the weekend as the huge International Event here is the ultimate test of skill, endurance and athleticism between horse and rider.”
“There is no equine sport that compares what an event rider and their horse have to go through to train for such an arduous and spectacular event like this. We have the very best in the World and Ireland competing here and nowhere else in Ireland will one see the same concentration of Olympic and World medallists at one venue in this country.”
