Tattersalls International Horse Trials
- celebrating the story so far...
HIS year should have seen the 15th running of the
Tattersalls International Horse Trials and Country Fair
from May 27-31, had the event not had to be cancelled
due to the current global pandemic. Over the years, the
event has become one of the most prestigious in the
world, attracting top international competitors, as well as up
and coming prospects from closer to home.
Tatts is very popular with both competitors and spectators
from the Northern Region and large numbers would have been
making the journey to Ratoath, Co. Meath to enjoy the event in
the glorious sunshine last weekend.
In the absence of results and photos for this year, here are a
selection of photos from previous years to remind everyone of
the fantastic cross-country course and the great successes that
Northern Region riders have experienced at Tatts...
Roll on 2021!
