Dublin Horse Show - August in Dublin

The Dublin Horse Show has been the major event of Summer in Dublin since it began in 1864.   This is where you will see some of the best show horses and best international show jumpers, but also it is a fashion and style event particularly on Ladies Day.

This year the Dublin Horse Show runs from 9-13 August, 2017.

Up until 1919 women were not allowed to ride in jump competitions.  This changed in 1919 when a novelty class for women was introduced and in 1920 women were allowed to compete fully.     The Ladies Hunter Class for ladies who rode side-saddle in traditional costume (veil and habit) was, in the past, held on the Thursday of the show.  This has since been replaced by Ladies Day which is still held on the Thursday of the show. 

This year we were delighted that a number of our customers attended the show wearing our jewellery.
