Sponsorship can be so much more than a logo.
It’s an investment in your business.
It’s a declaration of support for your industry.


Irish Breeders Classic has the distinction of being the top young horse show-jumping competition in Ireland, with the largest young horse prize-fund in the world.

We also support local, we support Irish, we support the constant development of the Irish horse industry.
We support those who are working in this industry.
We believe in the quality of, and the possibilities for, the Irish horses they breed, develop and care for.
If you believe in this too, then becoming a sponsor is a great option.

New in 2019, we have options for Community Supporters, Premium Sponsors and Principal Sponsors.
All of our sponsorship goes into the prize fund and ensuring that the Irish Breeders Classic gets bigger and better each year.

Equestrians are loyal: 86% are more likely to buy products and services from companies who sponsor equestrian events and provide discounts (USEF).

I could see first hand how racing was benefiting from prize money. Such an investment rewards those that come together and do their job the best – be it trainers, riders, owners, vets or farriers… I felt that if we could all pull together to create this prize fund it would help generate demand for horses bred by Irish breeders.
