HSI is delighted to announce the details of the new HSI Eventing Championship for 5 and 6 year old mares, which will be held on Sunday 13th September 2015 at Lisgarvan House, Ballon, Co. Carlow. A prize fund of €15,000 is on offer for the Championship which includes generous breeder prizes. The aim of the Championships will be to identify, evaluate and reward owners of mares that are capable of performing at the highest level in eventing and are suitable for producing progeny that would be competitive in that discipline.
Commenting on the Championship, Alison Corbally, HSI Director of Breeding and Programmes, “The new Eventing Championship for mares will provide owners with a great incentive to compete their mares and will give the owners of the winning mares an additional incentive to breed form them early in their career. We hope the Championship generates a lot of interest within the industry and adds value to the participating mares.”
The Championship will be open to 5 and 6 year old mares that meet the relevant performance criteria and are registered in a studbook that is a member of the WBFSH or registered with Weatherbys. The Matron Scheme will apply for the Championships allowing for 6 year old mares with a foal registered on the IHR to compete in the 5 year old section.
