All of Diamond Crest Farm's Irish Draught/ Irish Sport Horse broodmares were bred in and imported from England and Wales . They were carefully selected to become part of our breeding program based on their superior conformation, movement, and athleticism. Our herd also includes Thoroughbred broodmares that were specifically chosen for their crossing potential with Irish Draught stallions.
