Don’t miss out on the 2015 Kilmacanogue Horse Show on Saturday 30th July in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow. It’s a great family day out with literally something for everyone.
Some of the show’s biggest attractions include the Irish Draught, Mares and Foals, Hunters, Connemara’s and Welsh Ponies showing classes. Alongside the popular Carriage Driving, Minature Horses and Sheep Show. The Pony classes are the highlight of the year for many local children as they struggle to show the judges how obedient their ponies are! Entries come from near and far for the Showing Classes which this year includes all three of Ireland’s national equine breeds – the Irish Draught Horse and the Connemara and Kerry Bog Ponies. Come to watch the powerful Hunters perform over fences. See the elegance of the Dressage riders perform perfectly in tune with their horses. Pick out the winners as the Race Horses that have become Riding Horses, the Cobs, Donkeys and the ever-popular Miniature Horses show off their paces! The Carriage Driving class is a real treat. Find out all about the Sheep in Wicklow and ‘Guess-the-Weight of the Lamb’. Best of all is the family Dog Show where many children show off their dog-handling skills. For artists there’s the Photography, Art and Scarecrow competitions. There will be Pony rides and face painting for children. A wonderful selection of trade stands full of unique goods and crafts from local enterprises to browse through. Finally a great selection of food and drinks including the famous local raspberries – a lovely treat to go with the whippy ice-cream. All-in-all a memorable summer day out that will leave you tired – but very happy!
