Horse Breeding today continues to generate as much interest as it did twenty or more years ago. Claremorris Horse Breeding Centre, Co. Mayo continues to provide the Irish Breeder with top class stallions and top bloodlines.
Our national breeding objective is "to produce a noble, modern, correct, sound, athletic sport horse with good basic paces, pleasant to ride with a good temperament to be used as a pleasure or performance horse capable of competing in jumping, eventing and dressage at national and international level." In an attempt to predict the future one must look back at what has been happening in recent times. The trend in Irish Sport Horse breeding has changed dramatically. In 1986 just over 90% of the foal crop was by Registered Irish Draught and thoroughbred stallions. This has dropped and now stands at just below 50%. The use of Sport Horse and Foreign Bred stallions has increased and now also stands at just below 50%.
At Claremorris Horse Breeding Centre we can offer you advice on matching a stallion to your mare and assist you in defining your breeding goal by giving you advice on the market etc.
