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

The ISH Young Breeders National Competition on Jan 26th 2019 was 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 also provide a fantastic opportunity to engage with some of the best professionals in the business.

Training events and the national competition 2019 are open to those aged 14-25 years on the 1st of January 2019.

The programme is also open for educational purposes 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. Limited training dates in 2019 for those not engaged in team selelction.
