Glenwood stud is delighted to be standing the striking Irish Draught black Sports horse Stallion

Paisley Park. Paisley is a young five year old with his first foal on the ground in 2020 and

another ID mare waiting to foal in 2021. He has a superb temperament and has the most lovely

elastic movement. He is broken, being ridden away, and going well. Such a nice stallion to work

with. He’s also been loose jumped and is showing good ability in that sphere. His offspring as a

result of having three pure bred grandparents are eligible for the grade up register. He’s actually

showing a great deal of likeness to Knightley Park in his movement, temperament and attitude to

work. Paisley has certainly some of the most outstanding bloodlines behind him and reading on

you will see he is from the crème de la creme 

He is the only stallion son of Knightley Park by the famous Enniskeane Prince whose dam was

Enniskeane Countess. Knightley Park stood at Glenwood for thirteen years being a prolific Irish

Draught Sports horse Stallion who started his career with top marks at his grading being Life

Approved. We have many fond memories of him, being the perfect gentleman. He had super

movement which was why he did so well dressage and jumping. He found lateral work and

changes so easy and enjoyed it. 

 

He produced some fabulous progeny, many of which have gone on to have great success in many different disciplines e.g. showing to HOYS, RIHS standard , side saddle, dressage championships and eventing up to International Standard. 

Paisley’s Dam Ballygrarris Black Diamond. A good old fashioned type and a real eye catcher, was well graded in Ireland and indeed rare in the Irish Draught world being black. She also has a stallion son in USA. Diamond is the daughter of the prolific Irish Draught International show jumper Diamond Lad, (by King of Diamonds) who jumped at 1m.60 and evented to CCI 3* as well as being a great sire of international show jumping stallions such as Heather Blaze, Blue Diamond and Tomgar Rocky. He was also known as an extremely good broodmare sire.

Diamond Lad’s dam Kildalton Countess (by Ben Purple) was the dam of some of the best Irish Draught stallions ever, such as Diamonds are Trumps, Kildalton King and Kildalton Gold who again produced Grade A’s. The dam of Kildalton Countess was Enniskeane Countess who was the dam of some great Irish Draughts and was also the GRANDAM OF KNIGHTLEY PARK. Wonderful to have her on both sides of his pedigree.

What is a tradional Irish Draught Sport Horse (TIDSH)?

To answer the question what is a TIDSH?, we must first answer the question what is an Irish Draught Sport Horse (IDSH).

Historically, the definition of an IDSH was defined by a percentage of Irish Draught breeding (anywhere between 25% and 75% of an IDSH's ancestors had to be an Irish Draught purebred horses). The other twenty-five to seventy-five percent could be from any other horse breed. However, in recent years, the IDSH studbook has been split into two.

 

The first section is as before any breed of horse crossed with an Irish Draught with between 25% to 75% of Irish Draught blood as before. A Traditional Irish Draught Sport Horse is the second section, and like an IDSH, the blood in the TIDSH section is between 25% to 75% but the remaining horses in the breeding must be Thoroughbred or Connamara pony (the traditional horse crosses in Ireland in the past),or a combination of both. The reason for this distinction (predominantly) is so that horses can participate in and be entered into the Irish Draught purebred studbook. This is called 'Supplemenatry Grade-up', and it is to ensure the orderly introduction of Irish horses onto the Irish Draught studbook, and to create a new stallion

bloodline to help with genetic diversity in the Irish Draught breed among other things.

 

What is Supplementary Grade-up in the Irish Draught Stud Book?

Supplementary Grade-up is a system by which mares (only) are eligible to be included in the purebred Irish Draught stud book if they fit certain strict criteria. Basically, a mare may participate if she has three out of four Irish Draught ancestors in her immediate breeding, as long as the other ancestor (25%) is either a TB or Connamara. Colts may be included on the traditional sport horse register, but thus far may not participate in the grade-up scheme. There is discussion as to whether or not this system should be changed to include colts at present.

 

Once mares have been identified as fitting the breeding criteria, they are then inspected as Irish Draught mares during mare inspections. Mares which are conformationally correct, and fit the Irish Draught type are then given an Irish Draught grading, and included on the 'main studbook'. Breeders beware! Many stallions which are included on the IDSH register and graded with the Irish Draught Horse society no longer fit the breeding regulations for foals to be included on the main stud-book. Basically, foals by such stallions will now never be eligible for inclusion on the Main Studbook, and will be 'genetically irrelevant ' as far as Irish Draught purebred breeding is concerned. Stallions who fit the breeding criteria as a TIDSH do not need to be inspected for their foals to be eligible for the main studbook. Paisley Park, fits these regulations.
