This is the first time Coláiste Bhríde has been asked to host the national event. Over the past 35 years the competition has been keenly contested and is the most eagerly awaited event on the Hunter Trials calendar. There are three competitions on the day: Teams of 3, Senior Singles and Junior Singles and the winners each year are worthy All Ireland Champions.

It is expected that more than 500 school children will take part from more than 100 schools across the country.

Coláiste Bhríde has a strong equestrian tradition, with students representing their school and their country in equestrian events over the years.

Entries are now closed. The running order will be available on the school website.
