The provisional timetable for the 2023 Northern Ireland Festival is now available.
We have also opened the online entry system to allow competitors to spread the cost of entries over the months leading up to the show. NIF 2023 is scheduled to take place at Cavan Equestrian Centre from 28th to 30th April.
Qualifying for the Northern Ireland Festival working hunter finals has started and those who earn their ticket to the final can enter at – Back in April it was Tullaree Fear Bui (Emily McGowan) and KBF Paved with Stars (Ciaren Feldman) who won this year’s NIF pony and horse working hunter supreme titles.
The Connemara Cup proved to be hugely popular with Rosscon Camille (Thomasina O’Reilly) the inaugural champion. It returns again next year together with numerous other flat and jumping classes across the busy bank holiday weekend.
New classes to the Sunday of the show weekend include the ‘Perfect’ Performance Working Hunter Trophy, with classes for both horses and ponies.
Further classes will be added in due course once we know the result of our Horse of the Year Show qualifier application.
