HSI Sport Horse and Sport Pony Foal Championship 2018
- 26 July 2018, 13:52
Horse Sport Ireland is pleased to announce the details of the 2018 Sport Horse/Pony Foal Championship. The Championship for horses has a prize fund of almost €30,000 and this year there will be inaugural sections for ponies with a prize fund of €10,000. The aim is to identify, evaluate and reward breeders who have bred a foal that has the potential to be competitive at the highest International level in the disciplines of showjumping or eventing.
There will be 5 regional qualifiers with separate categories and sections for hores and ponies for potential showjumping foals and potential eventing foals.
The qualifiers will be held from July to September with the horse section receiving €3,000 prize money at each of the 5 regional qualifiers where 4 foals will be selected for the final; the best show jumping type colt and filly, and the best eventing type colt and filly. This year there will also be a prize at each of the qualifiers for the best traditionally-bred foal. The ponies have prize money of €1,400 at each of the regional qualifiers and also have showjumping and eventing sections.
At the final in Cavan Equestrian Centre on Friday 19th October Champions will be named in both horse and pony sections with a pot of €10,000 for horses and €3,000 for ponies on offer. There will be a Champion Show Jumping Foal filly and colt for horses and ponies as well as a Champion Eventing Foal filly and colt. There will also be a special prize for the overall best traditionally-bred foal in the horse section.
