Horse Sport Ireland has welcomed the commitment given to support the Irish Sport Horse industry in the new Programme For Government.

The document outlining what Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil and the Green Party will aim to do over the next five years specifically highlights Horse Sport Ireland.

“We will continue to support the horse sport sector, recognising the need for increased ambition in this area to exploit the enormous potential of the sector from the perspective of competitive sport, welfare, traceability, and breeding standards. The further implementation of Reaching New Heights, which underpins the horse sport industry, is critical to that endeavour. We will ensure there is greater coordination between government departments on the delivery of this strategy.”

“We strongly welcome this important commitment towards the Irish Sport Horse industry which recognises both the importance of the sector and its enormous potential,” said Horse Sport Ireland CEO Ronan Murphy.

“We look forward to building on the relationships that we formed with all relevant departments and working with the incoming Government to further develop the full potential of the Irish Sport Horse sector.”

Horse Sport Ireland also welcomes the commitments given in the new programme for government to support Rural Development, a new Rural Policy to promote rural recovery and development in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis and further enhancements of the LEADER Rural Development Programme.
