About The Breed:


Meet a breed that competes in the highest levels of equestrian competitions. Including the Olympics and the World Equestrian Games. The Irish Sport Horse Studbook has been ranked as the leading eventing studbook almost every year since 1994. The primary make-up of the breed is Irish Draught crossed with Thoroughbred. Known as the Traditional Irish Sport Horse (TIH.) With the addition of other Warmblood breeds in recent generations many Irish Sport Horses are a different type of cross. The Studbook says that the breeds ability to look after and help their rider makes them ideal for amateur riders and as leisure horses.
