The 11-year-old ‘Sligo Balou Boy’ (ISH) also scored a major victory at the Winter Equestrian Festival with Darragh Kenny, while Andrew Bourns’ 10-year-old ‘Sea Topblue’ (ISH) has also been in excellent form.
Horse Sport Ireland Director of Breeding and Programmes, Alison Corbally said: “These Irish Sport Horses have not only all been bred in Ireland, but they have been produced through the Irish Sport Horse Studbook series aged classes and the HSI supported RDS Championships. Given that many of the breeders have made significant investment in sourcing/upgrading mares, selecting suitable stallions and following the Horse Sport Ireland breeding and production schemes, there is no greater pleasure now, than for each breeder to follow and enjoy the success of their horse winning at the top international level. It is every breeders dream.
“Sincere congratulations to each one of you. Also as the Irish Sport horse is renowned for their longevity, and these are all young horses, we wish them many more years of top level International success.”
