This sponsorship also provides us with the opportunity to explore possible business relations with Irish producers and suppliers of quality feeds, supplements and bedding products which may be compatible with our brand within the UAE. We wish all those competing and attending this year’s show, success and enjoyment at this wonderful event"


Speaking on foot of the announcement Michael Duffy, Chief Executive of the RDS said: “The connection between Arab bloodlines and Irish horsemanship goes back centuries, so this new sponsorship is a fitting relationship. Sponsorship is vital for the continued success of the Show.
