This was the winning entry to an open design competition for a feature show jump at the RDS Dublin Horse Show. Intended for use in the Grand Prix and The Aga Khan Trophy. It has become a recognisable feature in the main arena at the world famous annual event.
The structure is tall but light, so it can be carried by a team of 3 people when laying out alternative courses within the arena. And although it is tall, the elegant fluted shape ensures that it does not obscure the crowd’s view of the horse completing his jump.
The large convex curving latticework was handmade at the DE BRUIR studio in American Ash.
