Teagasc and Horse Sport Ireland have announced upcoming training days for Young Breeders throughout February, March and April. These training days are part of the National Young Breeders Competition 2011 programme. Anyone aged between 14 and 25 years that has an interest in horses is welcome to attend the training sessions which will include the evaluation of conformation, movement and jumping ability, as well as training on presenting horses in hand.
Wendy Conlon of Teagasc is careful to point out that young people do not have to be breeders to participate. They should simply have an enthusiasm to learn about assessing and exhibiting horses. It is also an opportunity to broaden thinking through interaction with many different industry experts throughout the country. (None of them very close to Donegal, as usual…)
