New equestrian event targets cities
22 Apr 2015 10:10
A new initiative to bring show jumping into greyhound stadia in cities during the summer has been launched.
-
Jumping In The City, which was announced in Dublin this morning, will take place in greyhound stadia in Limerick, Cork and Dublin on Friday nights during the month of June.
-
The events aim to attract not just show jumping fans and others, too.
-
Run by Horse Sport Ireland in conjunction with the Irish Greyhound Board and Show Jumping Ireland, Jumping In The City will see three different classes of competition each night, including an amateur series for grass-roots riders, a Grand Prix for Ireland's top riders and a puissance where riders try to jump a huge red wall as it is built progressively higher.
-
The series begins in Limerick on 5 June, moves to Cork on 12 June, with the series reaching its finale in Shelbourne Park, Dublin on 26 June. All events start at 6.30pm and will run to 11pm.
-
The Jumping In The City Series will be in support of Special Olympics Ireland Equestrian Athletes travelling to represent Ireland at the World Summer Games 2015.
