Racing Horse to Riding Horse

Racing Horse to Riding Horse

Well we’d be forgiven for thinking that the Dublin Horse Show is a showcase mainly for traditional breeds like the Connemara and Irish Draught. But racehorses also have an opportunity to compete in the Racehorse to Riding-horse competition - where they are retrained to become suitable for leisure riding, eventing or jumping.
