The 2022 Dublin Horse Show takes place from August 17 – 21.

The event will feature over 300 trade stands selling a wide range of products including fashion, beauty, homeware, garden, jewellery, antiques and gifts. There will also be a wide range of bars and food options, live entertainment, music and dance workshops.

Ladies' Day at the Dublin Horse Show will take place on Thursday, August 18, 2022. Ladies’ Day conjures up stylish dresses, eye-catching hats and chic outfits for both men and women and much more. Be in with a chance to win a €10,000 voucher for Very Best Dressed!

There is also a designated area for children with pony rides, interactive entertainment and face-painting. Brilliant fun guarantied!

Over 168 national & international equestrian competitions will take place during the 147th Show, including Friday’s famous Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup for the Aga Khan Trophy.

Regarded as one of the most prestigious annual show jumping competitions in the world, the competition for the Aga Khan Trophy attracts some of the best international horse and rider combinations from around the globe.

In addition to the recently announced 53% increase in prize funds across the Show Hunter classes, the three weight categories; light, middle and heavyweight, will now be open to horses of all ages.

The previous restriction to 8-year-olds and under will be removed and several classes across the three weight categories will now be open to horses 6 years old and over.

In recent years there has been an increased market for well-produced older horses, and it was decided to therefore open the classes to the more seasoned animals.

A new Working Hunter class for traditionally Irish-bred horses will take place on the Sunday of the Show.

The class will be open to mares, geldings and stallions aged 5 to 10 years old. It will be open to Traditional Irish Horses (TIH) only and eligibility for the class will be based on the horse having three successive generations of recorded Irish traditional pedigree i.e., one to some, of all the three basic constituent breeds being Irish Draught (ID); Connemara Pony (CP); and Thoroughbred (TB/XX).

The RDS will re-introduce its €5,000 ‘thoroughbred’ foal class under the Mares & Foals section with a new twist this year.

The entry criteria have been widened to include foals out of Thoroughbred mares, as well as foals by Thoroughbred stallions. The €5,000 prize fund will be awarded amongst the three highest-placed foals – 1st - €3,000, 2nd – €1,500 and 3rd - €500.

Adult five day admission to the Dublin Horse Show costs €65. Meanwhile children under the age of 16, OAPs and students go for €50.

Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
