The Youngster Tour is for Irish bred horses The Youngster Tour is now in its third year. We have gone from strength to strength since 2020 & the Tour has evolved into a priority for many riders during the summer season.
The Tour is for Irish bred horses, to develop over the summer season with 20 Tour Shows available to them to qualify for the Grand Finals in Mullingar EC in September. The heights of the fences are started at a low level in May & the focus is on allowing the horses to develop rideability, bravery & in turn allow their bodies & minds to strengthen over the summer. The Tour has shown that horses can be allowed develop slowly and in turn get to their full potential as they get older. It is hoped to add longevity to their careers with a more sustainable & planned production.
We now have an avid following & horses are seen to improve significantly over the Summer & by the time they reach the Grand Finals they are more rounded individuals in the ring & many are ready to go to new homes
