Autumn Mare Inspections

HSI will be holding mare inspections in the autumn with the closest venue for Northern Irish owners being Ravensdale Equestrian Centre where inspections will be held on the 3rd October. We would encourage anyone who has a mare to be inspected to ensure they enter on time as inspections will only go ahead at a venue if there are sufficient entries.

Deadline for applications to HSI is 12th September.

Details of all dates and venues can be found on our Inspections page.
