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.
