Sport horse foals must be registered within six months of birth or before 31 December on the year of their birth. If you have a foal with recorded pedigree there is slightly more to include in the registration process, in comparison to a foal without fully recorded pedigree.

For your foal to be eligible for either the Irish Sport Horse or the Irish Draught Horse studbooks the sire and the dam of the foal must be registered in the Irish Horse Register.
