Irish Eventers on the Irish Horse Gateway

General October 18, 2013


The Irish Sport Horse Studbook won the eventing rankings every year since the conception of the rankings in 1994 up until 2010. In 2012, the Irish Sport Horse Studbook never looked in doubt of winning and ultimately finished on 1,427 points, to reclaim the top spot in the rankings. In that same year, Mr Medicott (ISH) was named the number one event horse in the world.” Horse Sport Ireland

To say we breed excellent sport horses for eventing might be a slight understatement.   The consistency to stay at the very top for this long means quite simply, Ireland is a nation who produces the most exceptional sporting horses.  The Irish Sport Horse Studbook  has won the FEI WBFSH Eventing Studbook  an astonishing 15 out of 17 years.
