With a total of €13,550 on offer, the hotly contested 2014 Irish Sport Horse Studbook Showjumping Series finals took place at the Tattersalls Ward Union Hunt Show last weekend.

As well as deciding the winners of the final legs and leagues, a number of places were for up for grabs for automatic selection for the FEI World Breeding Jumping Championships for Young Horses at Lanaken this year. So, understandably, entries were strong for the final leg of this year’s series, with 88 five-year-olds, 46 six-year-olds and 30 seven-year-olds entered for the qualifier classes.
