Carr & Day & Martin

Side Saddle Ireland are delighted to announce a flagship National Championship which will be run on a league basis across all agricultural shows and horse shows which are affiliated to Side Saddle Ireland (“SSI”) across the country in 2024. This will culminate in a presentation to be made at the end of the showing season at a glamourous presentation evening. We have a huge cash prize fund of €2750 which includes €1,000 for the overall Lady Champion, and amazing prizes for 1st to 6th in both ladies and juniors which are generously sponsored by our title sponsor, Carr & Day & Martin, who are also sponsoring a ‘Best turned out’ rosette for every affiliated class and a sash for the lady and junior with the most ‘Best Turned Out’ rosettes by the end of the season.

Caroline Davis, Carr & Day & Martin Brand Manager ‘We are thrilled to be title sponsor of the Side Saddle Ireland National Championships. We put as much care into producing our products, as riders put into preparing for competition and turnout is such an important part of the Side Saddle experience. We’re delighted to be supporting Side Saddle Ireland and working together to celebrate the rich history and qualities that are shared by both entities.

This collaboration represents our dedication to equestrian excellence and the timeless tradition of side saddle riding. Furthermore, we are proud to extend our commitment with the introduction of the ‘Best Turned Out’ awards throughout the season, celebrating the meticulous care and attention to detail that defines our riders and their equine partners. Together, we embrace the elegance, heritage, and passion of side saddle riding, embodying the spirit of Carr & Day & Martin.”
