There is also a Mini Championship on the day for Classes 5 to 8 and 12 to 15, organiser, Faith Ponsonby explained.

We will also have two Side Saddle Qualifiers for the RDS Horse Show and these will take place at 12 midday. The Irish Draught Performance Classes run in Ring 1 after Pony Classes at 3 pm approximately,” Faith added.
