Roll up for the country fair.

Ireland's best riders will have their skills, endurance and athleticism put to the test at the Tattersalls International Horse Trials and Country Fair this June bank holiday weekend.

Thousands are expected to attend the showcase in Co Meath, which also features a traditional country fair with food tents, shopping, family farm, carnival rides and novelty dog shows.

A total of 11 of the world's top 20 riders will compete at the international event and there is plenty to entertain.

"There is no equine sport that compares with what an event rider and their horse have to go through to train for such an arduous and spectacular event like this," said event co-ordinator Joanne Quirke.
