THE Irish Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association has released an outline of its 2019 educational programme. Funding for the programme comes from the Department of Agriculture’s equine technical support and breeding scheme project.
It is designed to support and advocate quality thoroughbred horse production, while educating and informing both established and emerging breeders.
The programme includes a number of QQI (Level 4) accredited courses. QQI is the national agency responsible for qualifications and quality assurance in further education and training and higher education.
Further details of the 2019 series will be published next week, ahead of the ITBA’S summer educational series of course which take place at the association’s Co Kildare office.
