Dublin Horse Show, 7th–11th August in 2013. You can ride in the morning and visit the show in the afternoon if you

And to get the Bel-Air atmosphere, you can watch our YouTube channel. Apart from the headcam videos from the mock hunt, it shows some of our guests
show jumping and cross country. Plus that great video the Honeymoon testers made during their visit a while
back. They also wrote about us on their blog. Enjoy!
One of our guests last year also made a very brief summary of her visit here, and posted it on YouTube. Very
nice, we think.
We look forward to hearing from you, and hope to see you soon - in the saddle or in front of the fire,
