 As show season gets fully into swing, sport horse enthusiasts can learn a lot from the methods used by judges in the ring.

 The show season is in full swing up and down the country. It is a great opportunity for you and me to view the many horses on display. For those of us ‘judges on the ditch’, it is a great opportunity to test our judging skills against those of the judges inside the ring. We may not always agree but then do we get the same view of the animals as the judges? We get a view from a different angle and usually we are not as close to the horses. In these circumstances perhaps we should not be as critical as we often are. When the class is complete, do go and have a closer look at the winners to see if you can spot why the judges placed one ahead of the other.

Exciting prospect moves to south-east


An exciting new Clover Hill sire joined the fully approved ranks when Kennedy’s Clover passed the Irish Horse Board inspections in March. From the penultimate crop of Clover Hill and with a classy damline, the 11-year-old returned from Italy to stand in Co. Wexford with Moses McCabe.

As the name suggests, Kennedy’s Clover is a graduate from the Kennedy’s yard in Kerry and notched up 45 points, with a 100% double clear record sheet, from his 2001 campaign before his sale to the Luise family. These Italians are avid supporters of the Irish horse and their latest purchase was campaigned by their daughter Slivia.

Moses’s daughter Siobhan, explains how Kennedy’s Clover returned home. ” We were looking for a stallion at the time and met the Luise family at a show. They mentioned that they were keen for their horse to stand in Ireland, especially in the south-east where there were good mares” As a result of that conversation the deal was done for the Italian export’s move to Enniscorthy.
