IRELAND… where it all begins.

Ireland is the largest producer of thoroughbreds in Europe.

Irish breeders have a well-earned reputation for producing tough, durable and sound horses that go on to perform at the highest level all over the world. A temperate climate and calcium rich soil provide ideal conditions for developing young stock.

Irish bred horses consistently celebrate international success and as a result, bloodstock exports continue to thrive each year.
