Millstreet are also pleased to offer special travel rates with Irish Ferries and is straightforward to access due to goof road routes. The showground also offers permanent stabling, bar and catering facilities; with both dressage and show jumping to be ridden on surfaces.
Mike Etherington Smith, the Cross Country course designer said:
‘All the courses have a good variety of questions that hopefully encourage forward, responsible riding. Horses need to be ridden properly and riders need to think their way around the courses. The mix of fences requires confidence, athleticism, accuracy, and nimbleness. Danny Dulohery has, with his course building team, done a great job with the fence construction and a huge amount of work continues to be done on the footing.’
Team EWW can’t wait to see how Issy and Katherine enjoy the challenge #youhearditherefirst and wish all traveling across a safe and enjoyable trip.
