By Alix Burchell - Horsemart 2021-01-29
An Irish Sport Horse is traditionally – as the name suggests – a horse breed that’s bred in Ireland. A true Irish Sport Horse (or ISH as they are known for short) is the product of breeding a Thoroughbred with an Irish Draught or vice versa, resulting in a horse that typically has the ideal balance of the two. Highlighted qualities include the agility and speed of the Thoroughbred, with the versatility, power and soundness of the Irish Draught.
