Regional tours have become an important feature in the show jumping calendar. They provided a training ground for young riders and horses and contribute to local shows. The Mervue Equine Leinster Summer tour has proven popular with riders, with a high level of competition, generous prize funds and good course designing.

This week, Iverk Show held the penultimate round of the Mervue Equine Leinster Summer Tour. The show is one of the oldest shows on the calendar and is now in its 192nd year.
