You can follow our live blog below for all the very latest updates from an action packed day down in the RDS.


The Public Judging Competition that takes place each day at this year’s Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Stena Line Dublin Horse Show, allows visitors to pit their wits against the expertise inside the Showing Rings. Showing classes are a really important part of the Show, where horses are judged by experienced equestrian personnel on conformation, movement, gait, presence and other attributes.


Visitors can submit their chosen winners and post in it in the ballot box to be in with a chance to win €1,000 each day. Make sure you get a prime viewing spot to examine each of the horses on display. Once you have made up your mind about which animals should take the top honours, submit your form and see if it matches the judges’ selection. It’s a way of really getting involved in the competition and making the most out of your day at the Show. Someone has to win so it could well be you!

Public announcements at the Show Rings will remind you on the day of which classes are eligible for the competition, they range from foals, to racehorses, to side-saddle.  Commentators will direct you to where you can pick up entry forms at both Rings 1 and 2 and give you some guidelines by which to make your decision.

Ireland unable to lift clouds around Dublin Horse Show Great Britain take Aga Khan trophy with umbrellas order of the day at the RDS


Persistent rain showers put a damper on Nations Cup day at the Dublin Horse Show at the RDS. The result of the main event left the home crowd a little downbeat too.

Umbrellas, raincoats and bag packs were the order of the day for spectators, rather than the stilettos and sunglasses seen on Thursday for Ladies’ Day.

The McGlynn family from the Curragh, Co Kildare, were among those who withstood the downpours to see who would win what’s officially called the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup.

Ann McGlynn said her daughters Molly (12) and Ellie (8) and friend Amy McHugh (11) love horse-riding but were also hoping to catch a glimpse of equestrian YouTuber Esme Higgs.

“We were here last year as well, it’s a great day out. Molly said it’s the highlight of her summer, she loved it,” Ms McGlynn said.

Kay Murphy  from Harold’s Cross, Dublin, has been coming to the horse show since she was seven years old.

“My uncle used to get the corporate tickets and we made it as a birthday outing and we would come to the jumping and have high tea on a low table on the grass.

“When I was a child my birthday was in the middle of the holidays so you couldn’t have a party so we would go to the horse show.”

Ms Murphy said she did horse-riding lessons on a farm in Tallaght when she was younger, though the site is now “under concrete and covered in houses”.

“When you got to around 17 or 18 it became much more serious for the boys, but the girls kind of faded off. They say it’s something to do with confidence, that younger men are more confident than girls. I don’t know the reason. A lot of my riding class would have been girls but the boys all stayed at it. We did something else.”

This year’s festival marks 100 years since women first competed at the show.

An RDS event earlier this week highlighted research showing a drop-off in the numbers of women riders taking part in RDS competitions, particularly at the higher levels, in the 10 years since 2020. Speaking at the time, Co Kildare-based trainer and rider Nicola FitzGibbon said: “It is an extremely mentally difficult sport to be in, and women suffer a lot more from impostor syndrome, they doubt themselves a lot more than men.”

Up to 100,000 people are expected to attend the RDS over the course of the show, which continues with the Land Rover Puissance on Saturday and the €350,000 Longines International Grand Prix of Ireland .
