HSI Stallion Selection Applications 2022

Horse Sport Ireland will be holding Irish Sport Horse, Irish Sport Pony and Irish Draught Horse stallion selections at Cavan Equestrian Centre on Wednesday 23rd and 24th March 2022. Closing date for receipt of applications is Friday 4th February 2022.

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.

To fill in the application form online, please fill out the form below. Alternatively, please download an application, veterinary form (these are now fillable PDFs) or procedures and guidelines below. This year you may enter online and from 2023 the application will be available to complete online only.
