Barnadown host the first of the FEI Quota Horse Lanaken selection days
- 8 July 2021, 16:19
The first of two Lanaken viewing days, generously sponsored by Connolly’s Red Mills, took place in Barnadown yesterday, the 7th of July 2021. These viewing days provide WBFSH Studbook registered five-, six- and seven-year-old horses, who are bred and produced here in Ireland with the opportunity to compete in the viewing days for the FEI horse quota Lanaken selection. These competitions allow the owners and riders to strengthen the competition record of their Irish and foreign bred young horses ahead of the FEI WBFSH Young Horse Championships in Belgium later this year. Jane Davies of Connolly’s Red Mills added that ‘We were really delighted to be able to support yesterdays FEI quota horse selection day for the WBFSH Championships in Lanaken. We saw some really nice young horses jump at Barnadown and the standard was very high. It will be interesting to see which horses will be selected by Chef D’Equipe John Ledingham to travel to Lanaken’.
Five double clear rounds were jumped in the five-year-old class. Tomas Doyle of Monbeg Sport Horses had two of the five double clears. Tomas explained ‘It is a great opportunity for foreign horses to be presented in front of selectors. Monbeg June (WSI) competed here today, this was an invaluable experience for her as she is a little behind my other 5 year olds when it comes to production. It was also a great opportunity to compete against horses of the same age for comparison. Overall, it was a great day, at a great facility with a good course and it will stand to the foreign horses going forward’.

The six-year-old class also saw five double clear rounds. One of these clear round came from Nicholas Connors and Fornett D’Emeraude (SF), by Cornet Obolensky (BWP) out of Tapass (SF) by L’Arc De Triomphe (OLDBG), owned by Ann Connors. Following the class Nicholas stated ‘It was a great opportunity for foreign horses to get out and jump. It was a brilliant course, the first round was not too big so they could go in and jump around and relax and then go on and jump a bigger track in the second round. It was also great for Red Mills to sponsor the day. I was delighted overall and these days provide the young horses with valuable experience in the ring, in some of the best centres in Ireland’.

Ollie Van De Klotputten (BWP), ridden by Vincent Byrne, was the sole clear round in the seven-year-old class yesterday. Ollie Van De Klotputten (BWP), is a 2014 gelding by Jackson De Regor (BWP) out of Goldwin (BWP) by Chatman (HOLST), bred by Nick en Koen Maes and owned by Ronan Clarke. When speaking with Vincent about the Lanaken selection day he noted that ’With an increasing number of foreign horses being produced in Ireland it is great to have these selection days, as these horses don’t always have a platform to be showcased. These classes allow horses to gain valuable competition experience, particularly the five-year-olds, as they get to jump two rounds together, with the second round being slightly bigger than the first. This is great exposure for these young horses. The selection days give owners and riders something to aim for and work towards with young foreign bred horses, so hopefully a few of the horses presented at these selections will be given the opportunity to compete in Lanaken under the Quota horse selection system’.
