Stallion Selections

2020 Horse Sport Ireland Stallion Selections Results Announced

The 2020 Horse Sport Ireland Stallion Selections took place in Cavan Equestrian Centre on the 10th and 11th of March. A total of 30 stallions were presented for inspection, eight Irish Sport Horse stallions, 19 Irish Draught stallions, two Thoroughbreds and one pony stallion.

Irish Draught stallions were initially presented to the Irish Draught studbook inspectors in-hand on the triangle, where their conformation, walk and trot were assessed. They were then shown loose to further assess their movement and athleticism. Of the Irish Draught stallions presented, seven achieved Class 1 status.

Of the 11 stallions presented for Stage 1 for the Irish Sport Horse and Irish Sport Pony Studbook, four met the Stage 1 requirements on the first day. This entails an in-hand conformation assessment using linear profiling and movements is assessed on the triangle then hard surface followed a loose or ridden athleticism assessment. Three Irish Sport Horse Stallions met the Stage 1 requirements and presented for Stage 2 assessment on Wednesday where they were ridden by their own rider and subsequently ridden by Capt. Geoff Curran, the test rider for the Irish Sport Horse Stage 2 assessments. The four-year-old Lithium V.S. and the five-year-old Kaiden Leva WD both met the criteria and were classified as Preliminary Approved.

Commenting on the 2020 inspections, Alison Corbally, HSI Director of Breeding and Programmes, stated

“There was strong representation of 19 Irish Draught Stallions who came forward for inspection this year, eight Irish Sport Horses, two Thoroughbred’s and one pony. The preparation and turnout of all stallions was excellent and commented on by both inspection panels.  I would like to acknowledge the effort put in by the stallion owners and their support staff in producing these young horses so well.  I hope that breeders, will consider using these newly classified stallions and give them an opportunity to start their breeding careers with good mares. While imported semen is very useful for out crosses, as an industry we need to consider and support Irish based stallions to ensure the investment made by Stallion owners in Ireland continues to thrive the future. We wish them all the best of luck in their breeding careers.”

HSI Stallion Selection Applications 2020

Horse Sport Ireland will be holding Irish Sport Horse and Irish Draught Horse stallion selections at Cavan Equestrian Centre on 10th and 11th March 2020. Closing date for receipt of applications is Friday 17th January 2020.

This year we will continue to offer two options for veterinary. Option 1 where applicants can undergo the same veterinary process as in previous years i.e. submitting a pre-selection veterinary form, EVA, EIA, CEM certificates and X-Rays from a veterinary surgeon listed on the ‘HSI Radiography Panel’ and the stallion will undergo the clinical veterinary examination on the day of selection by HSI appointed veterinary surgeons.
Option 2 where applicants can opt to have their stallion undergo the veterinary examination prior to the selection at a HSI Designated clinic (i.e. see stallion applications). This option allows applicants to have the stallion prepared for selection with the knowledge that the stallion has met the veterinary requirements in advance of the selection.
