Twenty four people enjoyed all the entertainment on offer at the RDS in Dublin last week courtesy of the two ticket shows held at Ravensdale Lodge on July 21 and August 4.
The power of social media was used to full effect to attract attention for the second show on August 4 which was run with very little notice due to the availability of RDS tickets.
A great entry of over 80 combinations flocked to Ravensdale, a nice compliment to the 80 plus who attended the first show on July 21 to try and win a valuable pair of tickets to the annual Dublin Horse Show in Ballsbridge.
Competition was fierce in all classes and no quarter was asked or given as competitors young and old tried, some successfully, others not so, to cut every corner imaginable to get round the jump off track in the fastest time.
