Silver Spurs Finals 2015 Show Report
The format of this competition was changed from previous years, and the traditional “ride off” between the three Finalists in each class was dispensed with. Instead, a larger number of the top-scoring Semi-Finalist’s progressed to the Final, which was judged solely on the rider’s seat, effectiveness and performance of the test.

Dressage Ireland is very grateful to the Irish Horse Board, The Irish Sports Council and Horse Sport Ireland for their continued support of the sport of dressage in Ireland. Once again this year an allocation from the proceeds of the National Lottery to the Irish Sports Council has made this funding possible.
