In this particularly challenging year, there have been less competition opportunities due to Covid-19  to develop good jumping records for young horses and opportunities to familiarise the horses with jump off classes. By running these extra classes for 5, 6 and 7-year-old young horses, these venues are assisting the owners and riders of these horses to develop the competition record of their horses prior to the FEI WBFSH Young horse championships in Belgium this year.It should be noted that IRL has yet to receive an allocation within the FEI Quota and places may not be allocated as same are based on other Nations not utilising their full quota allocations. Historically, the FEI quota horse (defined below) required a strong competition record to secure a place at the championships. These extra competition opportunities are open to all World Breeding Federation for Sport Horse breeds of horse and will significantly assist in the selection of the FEI quota and Irish Studbook quota horses alike.For the FEI WBFSH Young horse championships, the FEI quota horses are defined as:Horses ridden by Irish FN licenced rider’s but not included in the “WBFSH Quota system”.  These are horses that have a studbook passport, which is a WBFSH breed, other than Irish Sport Horse or Warmblood studbook of Ireland. However, it should be noted by owners that these competitions will be open to all WBFSH breeds of horse.Selection Criteria – https://www.horsesportireland.ie/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Final-Approved_CH-M-YH-S-Lanaken-FEI-Quota-Policy_-004.pdfIn preparation for a results-based selection process the following venues have kindly agreed to host these additional classes and support the prize fund, as part of their shows, between the end of July and mid-August, this year.30th July            Summer Classic Series9th August         Tipperary Equestrian Centre12th August       Cuffesgrange show 27 November 2019, 12:38 FEI General Assembly Report – Pony Measuringlast_img read more
