“I have dealt with Vinny over a period of many years and always found him scrupulously honest and great fun to do business with. Vinny once paid me a great compliment “Steve Hadley would buy anything from a 12.2hh pony to a Grand Prix horse” and I would return the the compliment by saying the same of Vinnies ability to provide the same.”

“Equestrians searching for quality hunters and jumpers must know about Ireland Horse Sport & Leisure. They owe it to themselves and their clients to look at IHSL horses first. I came over from Washington State and now have multiple horses from their program.
I would highly recommend Vinnie Duffy and Jean Gill when looking for a horse to purchase. Both are honest, reliable, and have quality horses . I would trust them to send me any horse in their yard and know that it will come off the van in good health and have a sensible mind and disposition.”

“We have know Jean and Vinnie of IHSL for 10 years: the perfectly matched ponies and horses they have sourced for our children have taken them from absolute beginners doing pony club games to showjumping at the European Championships. Their ability to match the rider and animal, and make that partnership work and grow is priceless. I cannot recommend IHSL highly enough “

“I have been buying horses for my clients from Jean and Vinnie of Ireland Horse Sport & Leisure over the past 15 years. They have always provided suitable quality & safe horses for my riders and their after sale service is second to none!
I cannot recommend them enough & I look forward to a long future dealing with them.”

I have been buying horses in Ireland for over forty years and was introduced to Vinny and his wife some thirty years ago, he has been my first port of call ever since. The reason, horses are always accurately described and they all jump. With a great sense of humour he is a pleasure to do business with knowing you have his support and backup.

Pam Warren, Equine Agent, Cornwall, England

For over 25 years, I’ve travelled from the USA to ride in Ireland. I’ve always been very pleased with the quality and mindset of the horses at Ireland Horse Sport & Leisure. I highly recommend a riding holiday with IHSL.
