  • 31 March 2016, 20:17


The Irish Horse Gateway brand will be represented at this year’s Rolex Kentucky three day event to promote the global success of Irish bred and produced event horses. With over 20% of the horses entered to compete at this year’s prestigious event bred in Ireland, the Rolex Kentucky three day event is a wonderful shop window for Irish horses. Included in the 20% are two horses bred by Thomas Hughes in Kilkenny that are from the same mother, the Imperius sired mare – Flown.

The Irish Horse Gateway aims to be the first point of contact for overseas clients seeking information on sourcing Irish horses and ponies for equestrian sport and leisure.


The Irish Sport Horse Studbook is leading the way for eventers internationally and speaking about the event Elaine Hatton, Horse Sport Ireland’s Director of International Marketing  said;


“The Irish Horse Gateway aims to attract and facilitate future American buyers to come to Ireland to source their next eventer.”


“I’m looking forward to attending Rolex Kentucky Three Day event this year, Irish horses are leading the way for international eventing. Their longevity, bravery, ride-ability and willing temperament are just some of the reasons why Irish horses are so popular. Credit must be given to the breeders and producers of these horses who have done an incredible job and who have played an integral part in getting them to the highest level in their sport.”
