Irish Studbook.jpgOn 8 August 2011 the Warmblood Studbook of Ireland implemented several changes in its Rules and Procedures:

1. "Recognized Studbook" means a warmblood studbook incorporated outside of Ireland that is approved by the appropriate studbook recognizing authority in the country of origin and has been determined by the Warmblood Studbook of Ireland to have appropriate genetics, selection policies, and on-going stallion and mare evaluation policies.

2. The Genetic Development Program and Register D are now closed to new mares. This change does not impact mares currently in the Genetic Development Program and Register D.

3. Approved Mares may have no more than 25% Irish Draught blood (formerly 50%) except in extraordinary circumstances when the Mare Inspection Committee may approve a mare with no more than 50% Irish Draught blood (formerly 75%). This change does not impact mares currently approved by the WSI.

4. The following new criterion has been implemented for stallion approval: In the case of an Irish Sport Horse stallion, the stallion's sire and dam-sire must be approved by a Recognized Studbook and, if living, the dam of the stallion also must be available for evaluation by the Stallion Inspection Committee.

5. The following criterion has been revised for stallion approval: The stallion must have at least five (formerly four) generations of pedigree recorded with no ancestors unknown or not recorded.

6.The following new criterion has been implemented for mare approval: In the case of an Irish Sport Horse mare sired by a stallion born into a studbook outside of Ireland, the mare's sire and dam-sire must be approved by a Recognized Studbook.
