THE big strides taken by the Irish sport horse breeding and production industry in recent years were clearly demonstrated by the impressive results at the 2021 RDS National Equestrian Championships. Breeding successes are always the result of individual breeders’ decisions, and Horse Sport Ireland would like to congratulate all the Irish breeders who had horses competing.

The assistance of HSI’s breeding programmes providing enhanced verified information sources, national breeding initiatives focused on performance breeding goals and suitable production and competition pathways to develop young horses within Ireland and has been noted as of significant assistance by breeders in producing these horses.
