Kildare, arguably the equine capital of the world, has the busiest racing calendar in Ireland with 34 days of racing between the Curragh, Naas Racecourse and Punchestown race courses. The region has a strong equine tradition that includes Show jumping, Dressage, Hunting, Eventing, Racing, Breeding and Point to Point. With all this equine activity comes a way of life that involves the best of everything and the Osprey is at the heart of it all.
