Irish Draught Horse Society

The Stallion Covering Auction will be taking a break in 2014. We hope to run it again in the future.

History of auction

In 2007, the Irish Draught Horse Society, Northern Ireland, launched the Stallion Covering Auction, a fund raising initiative to preserve and promote the Irish Draught while providing much needed financial assistance to local chariities.

This initiative was applauded throughout the equine community and beyond, encouraging the IDHS NI to hold a subsequent auction in 2008.

Once again it was exceptionally well supported and subsequently it has become an annual event.

To date, through the auction, the Irish Draught Horse Society, Northern Ireland, has supported a number of charities:

  1. Arthritis Care

  2. Chest, Heart & Stoke association

  3. Marie Curie Cancer Care

  4. Motor Neurone Disease Association

  5. Northern Ireland Children's Hospice

  6. Sam Moore Fund

  7. Samaritans

  8. Riding for the Disabled Association

  9. The Children's Medical & Research Foundation

  10. Guide Dogs for the Blind

  11. Irish Guide Dogs
