A new initiative introduced by Horse Sport Ireland, the Irish Greyhound Board and Show Jumping Ireland to bring show jumping into stadia in three Irish cities will kick-start in Limerick Greyhound Stadium next month.

The ‘Jumping in the City’ Limerick event is one of a series of three, commencing in  Limerick on Friday, 5 June at 6.30pm, continuing in Cork on Friday, 12 June and concluding in Dublin’s Shelbourne Park on Friday, 26 June.  Each event commences at 6.30pm with gates opening at 5.30pm.

‘Jumping in the City’ will see three different classes of competition, including The West Wood/Ifor Williams Amateur Class for grassroots riders (max 16 athletes), a Grand Prix for Ireland’s top riders (max 16 athletes) and the big crowd favourite – The Devenish Puissance where 6 riders will take on the huge red wall as it is built progressively higher.
