The Teagasc/Horse Sport Ireland programme is now in its eighth year and is aimed at young breeders aged 14-25 years who are interested in assessing, exhibiting, and breeding performance horses.

A series of training days has been scheduled for the coming months that includes visits to the yards of Bournes Sport Horses in Ballinasloe, Co Galway in April and Carol Gee’s base Fernhill Sport Horses in Kilkenny in May.
