Connect to an international market for quality horses and ponies
An initiative of Horse Sport Ireland (HSI) the Irish Horse Gateway was developed to market and promote all that is best about the Irish horse and pony in overseas markets. It is the first point of contact for overseas clients seeking information on sourcing Irish horses and ponies for equestrian sport and leisure.
The Irish Horse Gateway is Horse Sport Ireland’s digital channel for the Irish breeder and producer, to connect to a worldwide audience of horse and pony buyers. In order to market a horse or pony on this website, all breeders, producers and agents will need to become registered members of the site and sign up to the Seller Code of Conduct. All horses advertised for sale on the Irish Horse Gateway must be studbook registered with their sire and dam recorded.
Testimonials from buyers and sellers – hear what our clients say
Our search for a new jumping horse for our daughter grew from North America to looking exclusively for Dutch Warmbloods in the Netherlands but having come across the Irish Horse Gateway we ultimately decided on a trip to Ireland to view several Irish Sport Horses. We purchased and imported two Irish Sport horses into Canada in October 2013 and couldn’t be happier with our choice. March of 2014 our daughter competed in her first 1.20m class at Spruce Meadows with a respectful 6th placing.
