Irish Sport Horse description

The Irish Hunter, or Irish Horse, originated in Ireland, and is the result of a cross between the English thoroughbred and Irish Draft horses. Technically, the Irish Hunger is not really a breed, but a half-bred, being half Thoroughbred and half-Irish Draft. However, Irish Horses do all have very definite characteristics, and so can be classed as a breed, and their universal importance and appeal deserves a mention.


The head is well proportioned with a straight or slightly convex profile, the eyes are large and expressive, ears are nicely shaped and long and the neck is lengthy and muscular with a slight arch. The classic Hunter is well-proportioned with a sloping shoulder, strong back and loins. A well-set head allows the horse to keep balance in all paces.
