  Linear Scoring

...the group practising linear scoring some horses


We are holding a demonstration in Donohoe’s Sales Complex in Goresbridge on Monday the 10th May at 7 pm.

As I am sure you are aware there has been much talk about linear scoring in recent months and the importance of good conformation and movement. In these difficult economic times these issues become even more important.

Ms Marily Power and Mr Michael Kirwan have undergone linear scoring training in recent months. They will on hand to discuss conformation and movement.

If you wish to bring along one of your horses for assessment please do. They will give you an honest evaluation of its strengths and weaknesses.

We will also demonstrate the procedures for showing mares in hand that will be used at the mare inspection next September.
