The celebration of a local, long term partnership 

At the launch of the second year of the hugely successful Pegus Gala Weekend, Thompsons’ Allison Matthews said how the decision to support the Stuart family for two years in a row, was an easy one. “The gala show in 2016 was an excellent showcase of some of Ireland’s finest equines, providing the opportunity for riders to have competitive classes in a relaxed environment. The format for 2017 will be slightly different, but it was based on lessons learned from 2016, showing how the gala weekend can evolve to be bigger and better. “The Gala Weekend at Gransha Equestrian gives Thompsons and Pegus the opportunity to talk about everything horsey, at an event under the charge of the exceptional organisational team that is the Stuart family.”
