Meanwhile, the Dualla Charity Horse Show events are non-competitive events,and this year's charities in line to benefit are the Order of Malta and Tipperary Hospice.

“We strongly believe that charity starts at home so therefore entry fees will be a kind donation,” said an organiser. “All entries are taken on the day. Once a donation has been made you can enter as many classes as you'd like without further donation.” Donation sizes are at the competitor's discretion

“We have a vast range of classes with a rosette for every person guaranteed. There are also four perpetual trophies up for grabs for the winner of each 'Best in Show' class,” added the spokesperson.

There are three rings in total: Ring 1 - Horses 10.30am sharp) Ring 2 - Ponies (10.30am) Ring 3 - Inhand & working hunter (11.30am).
