Sun shone on The Meadows this weekend for the first leg of the Irish Sport Horse Studbook Series. The five, six and seven-year-old qualifiers kicked off the series on Saturday, with the finals being held on Sunday. A total prize fund of €9,500 was on offer at this leg, making for some competitive Showjumping.

Thirty-seven horses lined out for the five-year-old final, with sixteen horses jumping clear through the first round of the Tom Holland designed course to make it into the jump-off. Fourteen horses went on to jump double clear rounds and split the €3,500 prize fund.
