Please find link to upcoming young breeder training events for 2018:
There is further information available on the website regarding the programme, which is a joint programme between ourselves and Horse Sport Ireland, running in two year cycles of training and both National and World Championship competitions.
The first training date is Feb 24th for which booking is now open online https://teagasc.clr.events/event/126814:young-breeders-training-day-kilconnell-stud . Please help us spread the word and maybe encourage young people to avail of this opportunity. The programme has a lot to offer in terms of opportunity to engage with experts in the sector and excellent quality performance horses on the various farms and yards which host us. Competition is one aspect of the programme which is otherwise geared principally towards providing hands-on education and broadening the knowledge of participants.
A Young Breeders Seminar event is also planned for April 4th in the Hodson Bay, Athlone, Co. Westmeath. This event will be during the hours of 2pm – 7pm and we are soon to reveal a very interesting line up of panellists for a day discussing various career pathways and opportunities in the sport horse and thoroughbred sectors, also in general industry within the sector; to be followed by a session on breeding, sport, markets, and assessing horses with industry experts soon to be revealed.
