Horse Sport Ireland (HSI) is currently offering a subsidised Reproductive Health Screening Scheme for 2024. This subsidised reproductive health screening/sampling is open to all active breeding animals in the sport horse sector during the 2024 covering season. This scheme is funded the Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine (DAFM) under National Breeding Services, is open to all studbook-registered stallions and mares (horses or ponies) and subsidises the cost of pre-breeding screening up to a maximum of €50. Applicants will be asked for their details and to upload the relevant veterinary reports and receipts to draw down the €50 per horse subsidy.

Under Horse Sport Ireland & International codes of practice, this reproductive health screening should be undertaken annually and ahead of preparing to breed, please CLICK HERE for more details. Mare and Stallion owners should always request proof of health status ahead of breeding. All imported semen must be accompanied by a health certificate and zootechnical certificate. This is vital to maintain equine high-health status as there is no EVA vaccine available in 2024.
