ROUNDING off a standout year, Hippomundo’s prize money-based rankings brought further good news for Irish Sport Horse breeding. Ballaghmor Class ended 2023 as the top-earning event horse of the year, the Irish Sport Horse (ISH) studbook retained its leading eventing studbook title and three Irish Sport Horses - Pacino Amiro (eighth), GRS Lady Amaro (19th) and James Kann Cruz (24th) - feature in the top-25 show jumping horses.

Simon Scott is once again the leading Irish show jumping breeder, ranking overall eighth amongst global show jumping breeders, thanks to Pacino Amiro’s near-million euro prize money tally last year.
