Why You Should Consider Horse Shopping in Ireland

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

Contrary to belief, a day out horse shopping in Ireland can be a fun and highly cost-effective way to view a multitude of extremely well bred, potential and proven, Irish competition horses in a short space of time.

Within an hour of Dublin airport, you will find several highly reputable breeders, producers and competition yards with quality stock for sale at sensible prices.  Ireland is renowned for many things but breeding great horses and making Guinness easily come top of the list.

Next time you are looking for your next competition horse, consider a quick day trip to Ireland instead of planning several long drives around England and Scotland to view individual horses. Why not view 6-8 horses in one day to find the horse of your dreams?

Equally, if you’re looking to buy more than one horse, you could plan a weekend trip in order to visit a few big yards. Some breeders and producers will offer overnight hospitality so you’ll leave Ireland having made new friends as well as buying new horses to add to your current string.

If you want to set your pulse racing then you should visit one of the many esteemed sports horse sales in Ireland. The atmosphere was electric at Goresbridge Go For Gold and the Supreme Sale of Showjumpers in November, and I have no doubt the horses they sold will be gracing the top of the leader boards in the very near future.

 

How To Get There

The cheapest and quickest way of getting to Ireland is typically by aeroplane; flights from most regional airports start from just £18! No need to pack a good book as you’ll be landing before you know it; the flight takes approximately one hour. Most Irish breeders help arrange pick up from the airport or will collect you in person.

Ferry is another option and costs range from £50-£180 depending on how far in advance you book and what date you travel on. The ferry isn’t the quickest or cheapest means of getting to Ireland but having your own car does mean you can drive around Ireland at your own leisure and travel further afield to view horses.

Travelling by train is the third option with return tickets from your own local train station starting at approximately £78.

Cevin Z and Billy Mexico, two Billy Stud Stallions with huge proven jumping success are profiled on Horse Scout and are connected through their breeding. Two super competition horses are for sale on Horse Scout and are out of these prestigious stallions.

Stallion at Stud Cevin Z profiled on Horse Scout

Cevin Z, bred to jump by the Zangersheide Stud, has proven himself over and over through his wonderfully talented progeny.  With xx pedigrees linked to Cor De La Bryere and Capitol I, he carries that quality whilst taking 2nd place at the head of the line in the 1997 Zangersheide Stud Show in 1997. Now some 20 years later, it is his progeny who are proving themselves again and again. Cevin Z has winnings in excess of £8,000 to his name and he was one of the most consistent 6 year olds across the country in 2003. He has a Stallion at Stud profile on Horse Scout offering excellent value for money with the Billy Stud in Surrey.

Billy Mexico shows his connections on to Cevin Z on Horse Scout and several horses advertised for sale are his progeny.

Billy Mexico also stands at the Billy Stud and is related through his grandfather, Cevin Z, to several horses for sale on the Horse Scout website.

Cevin Z’s son Billy Mexico, is a registered AES Stallion and this young stallion’s breeding puts him in the top league. It is not surprising that his stock are developing into top class sports horses, particularly in the eventing and show jumping arenas.

As a 3 year old, he was put to only six mares and his young stock have gone on to take ribbons on the international stage, all showing super technique and trainable brains.

Bidorette, the dam of Billy Mexico has proven herself as a broodmare. The Approved Stallion Fervent, with over $200,000 in his purse and Libro, who has been very successful as a jumping horse at Foxhunter level and now has 250 British Dressage points, are both out of Bidorette.

Volvo Sports Horses is a professional jumping yard, listed on the Horse Scout website.  They have several other horses for sale and would be able to offer alternative rides for comparison to this attractive school master jumper for sale.  Use this link through to this Cevin Z jumping horse for sale.

Another Cevin Z horse, this time an event prospect is Benny the homebred 4 year old produced to date by Alexander Whewall. He is easy to do and has been produced slowly and with consideration. The owner/breeder is sad that Benny has outgrown her tiny 5’4” frame, thus he is for sale and will hopefully go to a rider who can take him all the way to the top.  If you are looking for a youngster to bring into the family and compete then Alexander Whewall would love to hear from youUse the profile page for Benny to find his contact details.
