Now in its 148th year, The Dublin Horse Show returned last week with a mix of national and international show jumping competitions, with a total prize fund of €1.3m.
The highlight was the Nations Cup on Friday where Ireland competed to retain the Aga Khan Trophy for the second year in a row. However, it was not to be as the riders in green were beaten by the visiting Swiss team and Mexico taking third place.
It’s a great day out you’ll hear everyone say once they have been there….and even better when the sun shines. A carnival atmosphere with gourmet food trucks, ice cream vendors and of course the opportunity to enjoy a drink or two in good company. The BTI Rentals team provided the additional coldrooms, mobile bars and draught beer dispense equipment to ensure the thousands of horse enthusiasts could quench their thirst over the 5 days of action-packed competitions.
Organisers say the Dublin Horse Show costs the RDS €6m to run and is worth €50m to the economy.
