SHOWJUMPING Ireland memberships are due for renewal at the end of this month and there is some good news for members as SJI announced this week that membership fees will remain the same as in 2022.

Chairman of SJI Man-Fi Committee, Ronan Corrigan said: “The Management and Finance Committee have been keeping a close rein on all aspects of Showjumping Ireland in particular the last 12-18 months and as a result of this, the association is in a healthy position. We are pleased to say this has meant that we do not need to increase our membership fees and we can offer packages such as the Sportmans package and the first-time pony package in a time when there is significant pressure on people. Showjumping Ireland sees its role as the guardian of the sport on behalf of its members, developing and supporting the industry.”

It’s understood that some of the major affiliates are also keeping fees at the 2022 level for this year including Eventing Ireland, the Irish Pony Club and the Association of Irish Riding Clubs.
