Garda Vetting:  As and from 29th April 2016, Garda Vetting is a legal requirement. The onus is on each Affiliate to Horse Sport Ireland to identify persons and positions needing vetting and to ensure your organisation is compliant with the legislative requirements.   • Vetting is available to you all through Horse Sport Ireland, and is a key component in our Safeguarding Policies and Procedures and in the promotion of best practice in Child Welfare.
• Full details on our vetting process are available here:
