The Irish horse has made a tremendous impact at the upper levels of most International disciplines.  The Irish Sport Horse Studbook has frequently ranked first in the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horse (WBFSH) standings for Eventing. Custom Made, David O’Connor’s Olympic gold medal winning mount, Mill Pearl, Joe Fargis’ international jumper and Olympic silver medallist, and Special Envoy, Nelson Pessoa’s long time successful jumper, are all recognizable international performance horses and they are all from Registered Irish Draught breeding. The Registered Irish Draught Horse is the foundation breed for such equine athletes.  Both purebreds and partbreds alike are known for their performance superiority, intelligence, soundness and stamina.  For a breed that has less than 3000 horses registered, the Registered Irish Draught seems to have made a sizeable impact in performance worldwide.
