Parkmore Stud has been formed to Breed, Produce, Train, Compete &Promote Irish Draught & Irish Sport Horses.
For many generations the Irish Draught Horse has played a major role in Equestrian sport in Ireland & across the world.
The strength, durability, athleticism & temperament of the Irish Draught when crossed with the speed & athleticism of the Thoroughbred produces a horse capable of competing at International Level in Show jumping, Eventing, Dressage, Carriage driving. This being proved in Athens last year when both Carling King ridden by Kevin Babington & Mr. Springfield ridden by Robert Smith( U.K.) finished Joint 5th in the Showjumping event at the Olympic Games.
Both the Irish Draught & the Irish Sport Horse have retained the Sunday Horse Temperament, being excellent trail horses safe & Level headed, undeterred by the most shocking objects & noises. On the Hunt field you will seldom see an Irish Hunter return without his Master or refuse an obstacle (the motto being - If you can't get over it go through it, but ensure your rider stays with you). Careful, Honest Horses, they are excellent teachers, mentors, Confidence builders an ideal choice for young riders with DREAMS of GOLD.
When correctly handled & trained the IRISH HORSE makes an excellent family horse.
