INFO PACK & ENTRY FORM HSI YOUNG HANDLER CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES QUALIFIER ROSCOMMON SHOW, SATURDAY 17 TH AUGUST 2019

Horse Sport Ireland (HSI) is pleased to announce details of their sponsorship for the Young Handler Championship Series 2019. The aim of this Championship is to assist in the development of the skills of young handlers to prepare and present horses for show and sale.

The Economic Contribution of the Sport Horse Industry to the Irish Economy 2017 highlighted that since 2012 the involvement of young breeders (≤ 30 yrs) in the sport horse industry has declined from 8.1% to 3.7% in 2016. In 2016 just 0.19% of breeders were less than 20 years of age. The Championship is aimed at encouraging more young breeders/producers to become involved in the industry. It will also provide a unique opportunity for young handlers that are new to the industry to become involved in breeding initiatives and to gain contact and information/education and encourage long term involvement in the breeding industry.

Competition Format

The Championship will run over five qualifiers held at existing shows or events within the five Irish Horse Board regions and will take place from June to September to allow for maximum participation. The top three young handlers from each qualifier will be eligible to compete in the final.  The Final will take place on Tuesday 17th September at the National Ploughing Championships in Carlow.

Young Handlers may enter one of two age categories:

  • Junior: 14 – 18 years
  • Senior: 19 – 25 years

Each young handler will be required to do the following:

  • Use a suitable horse or pony to compete. The young handler is not required to have bred or to own the animal. All animals must be registered in a Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) Approved Studbook or World Breeding Federation of Sport Horses (WBFSH) Studbook.
  • Turn out the horse/pony for competition.
  • Understand and discuss the pedigree and performance history of a specific horse and its progeny.
  • Answer two theory questions (the list of questions and answers will be available on horsesportireland.ie/breeding/hsi-breeding-sponsorships/
  • Exhibit the horse/pony on a triangle in walk and trot, with open stance both on entering the triangle and completion of the triangle.
  • Give a short description to promote the animal to the judge(s) – FINAL only.
  • Create a short video to accompany the description to highlight the animal’s attributes (as if for sale) – FINAL only. Please note in 2019 training on “how to create a video” will be offered to all participants of these classes in the first week in September.
