“Tattersalls continues to attract the stars of the Eventing world. We are looking forward to welcoming the Irish Olympic Squad as they near the final stages of their preparation for Rio. Likewise to include multiple Olympic Gold medallist Andrew Hoy, silver medal winners William Fox Pitt, Zara Tindall and Mary King and other big international names such as Oliver Townend, New Zealanders Tim and Jonelle Price, Australian Paul Tapner and Sam Griffiths is a great honour for the event. Entries also include Camilla Spiers with Portersize Just a Jiff who recently finished top of the Irish at Badminton and Andew Lloyd Webbers daughter Bella who competes in the one star class. With well over 300 entries we acknowledge the number of amateur, junior and pony riders who are supporting us and competing alongside the best in the world. It is a mouth watering line up and we really encourage the public to come out in force to see these equestrian super stars in action on their door step.”
