Seven horses approved by the Warmblood Studbook of Ireland (WSI) have qualified for the Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show.

These are named as Dieschone, a four-year-old mare by Diarado owned by Olivia Roycroft; Dilona Blue, a six-year-old mare by Mr Blue owned by Jerry Sweetnam and Spy Coast Farm; Dondoctro Ryal K, a six-year-old stallion by Indoctro owned by Eamonn Murphy.; Claricella, a six-year-old mare by Clarimo owned by Ger O'Neill; Camillo VDL, a seven-year-old stallion by Douglas owned by Ivor Broderick; Chipolini VM Z, a seven-year-old stallion by Cassini II owned by Tina McDermott, and Hitchcock Van Overis, a seven-year-old stallion by Darco owned by Mary Ellen De Ruschi.

WSI collaborates with breeders to produce international show jumpers. They measure their success by the number of registered foals that become international show jumpers.

They have been issuing passports to show jumping foals since its approval under European and Irish law by the Minister of Agriculture in 2009. WSI has members throughout Ireland and in over a dozen countries. These include Germany, Belgium, Poland, Italy, and Dubai, UAE.

WSI breeders receive their passports efficiently, with DNA parentage tests conducted by the approved laboratory in the Netherlands and foal inspections conducted by inspectors.
