A key focus of the 2019 ISH Young Breeders Programme was the selection of teams to represent the ISH Studbook at the 2019 WBFSH International Young Breeders World Championships which took place at Stadl Paura Austria July 19-22.

2021 will see the WBFSH International Young Breeders World Championships hosted in Ermelo Holland by the KWPN Studbook July 8-10.

The ISH Young Breeders National Competition is the first step in the qualification / selection process for team participation at the World Championships. 2019 National Competition Press Release with Results

National and World Championship Competitions are fundamentally based on the assessment of conformation and athleticism traits, presentation of horses in hand and a theory test.  Training days provide a fantastic opportunity to engage with some of the best professionals in the business and supports preparation for competition but also educational for those who are not inspired to compete.
