The number one ranked Show Jumping rider in the world, Scott Brash, paid a visit to Emerald International Equestrian Centre in Co Kildare today, (Thursday 23rd October) to school some of his top horses and the Olympic Gold Medallist was said to be incredibly impressed by the facilities on offer at the newly opened venue.
“This is a world class facility with some of the best arena surfaces I have seen anywhere in the world” commented the 28 year-old Scottish rider afterwards.
