Over 300 of our top combinations will be competing during the weekend, all battling for the coveted title of being an Eventing Ireland National Champion and to get a share of the €20,000 in prize money along with additional prizes given by our very generous sponsors. 

Cross Country Course Walks will be taking place on Friday and Saturday evening. International riders Luke Drea will be walking the CNC1*, Sam Watson will be taking you round the EI90 and Sarah Ennis guiding you through the EI100 tracks.  More details will be available at the Secretary’s Office from Friday. This is a great opportunity for all riders to get advice and tips on to how to ride the course, regardless of experience!

Huge amounts of work have been undertaken by FEI International Course Designer Eugene O’Neill to make the Eventing Ireland National Championships cross country track as inviting as possible, and this includes black flag options.  Ground is also a priority and currently, the ground is in excellent order.

International multi-talented musician Liam O’Connor will be providing the entertainment on Saturday evening in the Tattersalls function room.  This will be a great opportunity to chat to fellow competitors about the day and to discuss plans for the final phase on Sunday.

The Tredstep Ireland Best Groom and Runner Up Groom awards will also be presented that evening.  All nominations are to be sent to Head Office by Wednesday 10 August – full details can be found on the Eventing Ireland website. 

There will be an array of trade stands selling a variety of goods so spectators can take time to browse between watching the action. 

Eventing Ireland would like to thank the entire team at Tattersalls Ireland for the time and work they have given to make the National Championships a success.

Wishing all the competitors the best of luck!
