Important notice to all owners/exhibitors involved in the showing of animals
The Irish Shows Association would advise all animal owners who have their animals insured to have the insurance extended to cover them while showing animals at shows. We understand that this costs very little or nothing all depending on who you are insured with.
The reason for us in giving you this advice is that if your animal were to lash out and injure someone or damage someone's property and its established that your animal was out of control at the time, you may be held liable/responsible ( or partly responsible) for any injury or damage caused and you could end up paying all or part of any settlement reached.

All Exhibitors are advised to have their Public Liability Insurance up to date

Equine Exhibitors - Please note that Equine Premise Reg Number must be quoted on entry form


The correct entry fee must accompany the entry forms otherwise they will not be accepted on the day

ENTRIES CLOSE on 21st August 2016
