Hadley Sport Horses is a professional equestrian business owned by Gill and Sven Hadley family based at Moycola House, Craughwell, County Galway, in the West of Ireland. We have an excellent selection of quality sport horse to suit all riding abilities, from novice to top level show jumpers to experienced hunters. We are all dedicated riders and involved in giving every horse the very best opportunity of achieving its potential.

We provide a friendly, relaxed atmosphere while maintaining a professional, high quality service. Services include showjumping, schooling, sales preparation, pre-training and livery.  Sven is one of Ireland up and coming young riders competing on the National and International Circuitand he competes alongside Hadley's other resident rider Tori Dunn. Both riders have shown great talent and natural ability enjoying success on the selection of horses at Hadley Sport Horses.

At just 19-years-old Tori Dunn has an impressive record to show for her hard work. On ponies she had a glittering career with wins in many national and international classes. Now competing in the young rider and senior arenas she is a serious contender. Tori works well with the young stock but also has the skill to deliver results in the ranking classes. She is extremely dedicated to her work and her plan is to aim for the European Young Rider Championships while competing in the young horse classes at home and abroad.



On hand, Gill Hadley also plays a role in the Equestrian side of the operation and brings with her a wealth of experience to the table. Gill is the driving force of the transport business at Hadley's and she holds a HGV and CDC license. She also holds an Equine transport license. She is on hand to insure each horse arrives safe and sound.

As a child Gill was a keen competitor in the showjumping arena. While Gill was ruled out of action due to a bad fall while racing she no longer competes but now rides for pleasure and also enjoys flat schooling for Sven when time permits.

As a team, the Hadley’s are committed to a breeding program and have quality foals from some of the top stallions in the world.  Hadley's hope that this breeding program will mean that the family will have a fresh source of quality horses which will go on to compete at the very highest level. Their breeding strategy insures that top performance mares are used with the top stallions. Hadley Sport horses have a host of exciting prospects which includes progeny from Aganix Du Seigneur Z, OBOS Quality, Plot Blue, Diamant de Semilly to name but a few.
