RTÉ Lifestyle attended the launch of the 2019 Dublin Horse Show to find out what's in store for this year's fun-filled day. Watch our interview with BEO's Aoibhín Garrihy above to find out more.

While showcasing the best Irish-bred horses at the RDS this August, the 2019 Dublin Horse Show will also be celebrating 100 years of female horseback riders. 

Although this will be the 146th year of the Horse Show, women only began taking part in jumping competitions from 1919. And as the first 'Ladies' Jumping Competition' was held on the second day of the event, the day become known as Ladies' Day.

In keeping with this theme, this year's event will be embracing styles in all areas as three of the adult horseriders will be dressed in riding outfits of the past 100 years: the 1920s, the 1950s and today.

Running from August 7th -11th, this fabulous occasion will be a combination of sport, style, and socialising as well as marking an important part of history here in Dublin.
