Breeding In Ireland
Breeding In Ireland : – Irish horse breeders are known across the world for producing tough, talented horses who regularly excel at the top level.
Despite its modest size and population of little over 4.9 million people, Ireland is Europe’s largest thoroughbred producer and the world’s third largest after the United States and Australia. The optimal circumstances for growing young cattle include a temperate temperature and calcium-rich soil. Irish-bred horses have a long history of international success, and our Sales annually draw visitors from over thirty nations.
Ireland has approximately 6,000 registered breeders, with some of the world’s most successful breeders establishing their businesses here. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, HH The Aga Khan, Prince Khalid Abdullah, Coolmore, and the Haefner family have all invested heavily in huge stud farms and broodmare bands. Irish-based stallions routinely dominate European sire rankings in all categories.
