Stallion Selections

2021 HSI Stallion Selections

The 2021 HSI Stallion Selections took place over two days on the 9th and 10th of March in Cavan Equestrian Centre. In total 44 stallions were presented for inspection, 9 Irish Sport Horse stallions, 15 Foreign bred stallions, 18 Irish Draught stallions, one Thoroughbred and one pony stallion.

In the Irish Draught stallion selections 18 stallions were presented for inspection and six achieved Class 1 status. In addition, Black Hero was Approved in the Irish Sport Horse Studbook having met all the requirements.

Four stallions were Approved in the Irish Sport Horse Studbook, these were high performance stallions presented for linear profiling that met all the requirements to be Approved in the Irish Sport Horse Studbook.

Of the 21 stallions presented for Stage 1 for the Irish Sport Horse Studbook, 11 of these met the Stage 1 requirements and 9 of these stallions, including 2 from previous years, went on to present for Stage 2 assessment of which 7 met the requirements to be classified as Preliminary Approved.

One stallion was presented for the Irish Sport Pony Studbook and met all the requirements to be Approved in the Irish Sport Pony Studbook.

Commenting on the 2021 inspections, Alison Corbally, HSI Director of Breeding and Programmes, stated “In 2021 in addition to the Covid-19 restrictions of running behind closed doors and additional testing requirements, we took extra precautions to safeguard the stallion participants due to the recent EHV 1 outbreak in Spain. All owners were required to declare that the premises from which their stallions had travelled had received no horses from continental Europe since the 1st February.  Unfortunately, this meant that we lost two stallions, but ensured that all other horses were safeguarded. Additional precautions, such as covid-19 testing all staff, arena party and inspectors were also implemented.  I would particularly like to thank all participants for their co-operation with these additional requirements this year.

We had a significant increase in both numbers and quality of stallions presented this year, with a total of 44 stallions coming forward. I was very pleased to see so many of these young stallions present for Stage 1 & 2 assessment in the Irish Sport Horse Studbook meeting the requirements and are now Preliminary Approved.  We also approved a very smart Irish Sport Pony stallion.  One third of the Irish Draught stallions presented this year met the criteria for Class 1 and there were also some interesting bloodlines that came forward. Breeders can be confident in using these stallions, that they have met the comprehensive requirements for veterinary (including wind and x-rays), conformation, movement and athleticism”

HSI Stallion Selection Applications 2021

Horse Sport Ireland will be holding Irish Sport Horse, Irish Sport Pony  and Irish Draught Horse stallion selections at Cavan Equestrian Centre on 9th and 10th March 2021. Closing date for receipt of applications is Friday 15th January 2021.

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, WFFS, 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.
