IMPORTANT NEWS FOR OUR MEMBERS REGARDING INSPECTIONSIN CANADA
It is the Board’s position that:
1) A second review of the role of Inspections in the Irish Draught breed policy in 12 months is unnecessary. Irish Draught inspections should be immediately reinstated.
The 2014 Taskforce addressed this very topic and Taskforce recommendations were accepted in November 2014.
Taskforce recommendations: http://www.horsesportireland.ie/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/FINAL-of-the-task-force-for-the-Irish-Draught-horse-for-PRINT.pdf Note under “Recommendations not accepted” items A and B.
HSI announcement of accepted Taskforce recommendations: http://www.horsesportireland.ie/horse-sport-ireland-announces-changes-to-irish-draught-horse-breeding-policy/
2) Inspections of Irish Sport Horses should be reinstated and only suspended should the review find it appropriate.
Suspending inspections pending a review
implies the current inspection process is tainted, and presupposes the outcome
of the review.
Please consult with Board members if you would like more details on our position.
As members of the IDHSC we ask that you consider these points, and send letters voicing your opinion as soon as possible on the need for the review for Irish Draughts and timing of the suspension to:
