There will be a superb opportunity for young people from across the country to visit Kellistown Stud in Co. Carlow on Saturday 28th September 2019 from 2pm to 4.30pm.
Kellistown Stud is primarily a young horse production yard – breaking and sales preparation. BUT – one of the best in the business!! Kellistown Stud is home to the exceptionally professional young horse producer Thomas Quigley. Thomas has produced a myriad of young horses that went on to achieve great things – Olympic and World Cup Participants; Dublin Supreme Champions; and even 2nd and 3rd placings in the Grand National to mention but a few. Thomas produces high quality young horses with great care and attention for clients such as Cooley Farm. At the time of visiting there will be ‘Go For Gold’ auction candidates to view, amongst others. Rider Shane Dalton will also join the group as will Philip Scott to discuss the production system on the farm and assess conformation, movement and jump traits (in hand, loose and under saddle).
