Last week, with a free family pass to see the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ this Friday at the Dublin Horse Show on offer, we asked you:

Why you would deserve such a prize?

‘Neighbour from Heaven’ won the pass with this desperate plea:

“Not wishing to be pushy,but I deserve the family ticket as my landlord has decided to sell up. The wife and our two kids have been lucky to find a new place to reside but the rent increases by €300 a month. We both work full time and any savings are now going to be lost on rent. She’s horse mad. Please give her something nice. Please :(“

Thanks all

Garden designer Diarmuid Gavin assembles his floral design at the Land Rover Puissance wall for the 2018 Dublin Horse Show.

To wit:

…an “elegant arrangement of shrubs and perennial flowers including pink and white Hydrangeas, Echinacea and topiary box balls in Terracotta pots which enhanced the familiar red and white brick pattern of the Land Rover Puissance Wall”.

Get him.

This year’s Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ of Ireland at the Stena Line Dublin Horse Show takes place at the RDS from August 8 – 12.

With over 1,500 horses and ponies, 135 competitions, over 300 shopping stands, food and drink stalls dotted all over the grounds as well kids’ entertainment and 8 world-ranking international show jumping competitions, it’s one of the stand out events of the summer!

Alongside five days of international competition, the Show has much to offer visitors with some boutique fashion and craft offerings alongside equine products, from both home and abroad. You can take the time to indulge at the Champagne bar, while pony rides and bouncy castles in Keeling’s Kids’ Zone will keep little ones entertained. It’s truly one of the events of the summer.

We have a family ticket to which entitles 2 adults and up to 4 children FREE admission to see the Nations Cup to give away.
