- 1 May 2019, 17:55
Following the success of the Horse Sport Ireland Foal Championship in recent years we are now seeking venue applications for 2019.
HSI Sport Horse and Sport Pony Foal Championship 2019
The HSI Sport Horse and Sport Pony Foal Championship has a very generous prize fund and will aim to identify, evaluate and reward breeders who have bred a foal that has the potential to be competitive at the highest level in the disciplines of showjumping or eventing.
This year there will be 5 regional qualifiers where possible held between August and September with separate categories for horses and ponies and separate sections for potential showjumping foals and potential eventing foals. Foals will be permitted to enter one regional qualifier but will not be confined to entering the qualifier in their own region. At each of the qualifiers 4 horse and 4 pony foals will be selected for the Final; the best show jumping type colt and filly, and the best eventing type colt and filly.
The final will take place in September/October and Champions will be named, both colt and filly horse and pony sections for Champion Showjumping Foal and Champion Eventing Foal. There will also be a special prize for the overall best traditionally-bred foal.
HSI are now seeking applications from existing shows and venues interested in hosting a regional qualifier and/or final. The closing date for applications is Friday 17th May 2019. For the venue application please download the form HERE
