Training Events

New participants in the programme are always welcome. Just contact Wendy Conlon wendy.conlon@teagasc.ie

2018 Training events will focus on preparing participants for the National Competition early in 2019 which acts as the first stage in the selection process for the next World Championship competition in Austria July 2019.

Competitions are based fundamentally on assessment of conformation and athleticism traits and also presentation of horses in hand. These skills will be developed over the course of the year. Training days provide a fantastic opportunity to engage with some of the best professionals in the business.

Training events and national competition for 2018/9 are open to those aged 13-24 years on the 1st of January 2018.

As always the programme is also open for educational purposes also to those who don’t necessarily wish to pursue competition goals but simply to develop their knowledge and skill in the area of evaluation of horses. In this regard if you are up to 29 years, dependant on numbers registered for individual training days, we may be able to accommodate you. In this circumstance please contact Wendy directly wendy.conlon@teagasc.ie , do NOT book directly via the links below.
