Horseware is continuing its sponsorship of the Association of Irish Riding Clubs Team Show Jumping Championship for the seventh successive year.
The popular series saw almost 150 teams take part last year which culminated in the final at the Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show last August.
This years qualifiers get underway on 1st May at Mullingar Equestrian Centre where teams from the Midlands area will begin their journey to qualify for the championship final, and they continue throughout the remainder of the month.
A team must win its respective regional qualifier while the runners-up have another opportunity at the Riding Clubs Festival in June to secure a place at the final.
Members must have registered with the Association of Irish Riding Clubs before the 30th April to be eligible for this championship.
Tom MacGuinness of Horseware said,
Horseware is delighted to once again be part of the AIRC Championships at the Dublin Horse Show.
We travel to shows around the world and Dublin is always the highlight of the year, with the excitement and fun of the Riding Clubs Team Championship at the heart of it. Best of luck to all competitors, and we will see you in Dublin
A.I.R.C. chairman Tony Ennis said, “Horseware have been dedicated sponsors of our team show jumping championship since 2010 and on behalf of our members, I would like to thank Tom and everyone at Horseware for their loyalty to this highly competitive championship.”
“This championship captures the imagination of our members as they embark on an exciting journey to seek qualification for the Dublin Horse Show in July and I wish all teams, the very best of luck,” he added.
