Our 'Ard' Connemaras
We have been breeding Connemaras for over 40 years and still keep a few mares, and of course stallions which we ride and breed with.
Ard Khana is our very old favourite (standing a bit muddy to the right of Ard Nola (by Village Boy)), was still with us at the age of 30 but no longer breeding, she sadely died in 2005 at the age of 31 and we miss her terribly. She represented Ireland in WHP in her day and was a consistent prize winner at major shows showjumping, in hand and under saddle winning Dublin, Galway, Clifden etc. She bred quality stock which were often exported abroad, except for Ard Conneely (pictured third box down) who we kept on and he became Clifden and Dublin Supreme Champion. Ard Conneely is now in Belgium where he was ridden, driven and out with his mares. In 2005 he won the Supreme Connemara Pony Championship of Belgium looking as good as ever.
We then purchased the beautiful young stallion 'Ard Archer' (see his picture below) a son of Ard Conneely in the Spring of 2002 and stood him at stud till 2004. We had him approved in 2002 and showed him successfully. He is a 148 cms Grey b.'97. If you click on his name and it will take you to his page.
2006 We purchased a 3 y'old son of Village Canal Beau (Coral Prince - Village Grey) out of Garryhinch Cinderella (Abbeylies Fionn - Kilbracken Queen) who is with us now. He is called Buldu and he has a special link in our hart, as his 'great great grandmother' Ashe Grey was my very own first Connemara pony, Here is Ashe Grey with me on board many moons ago. She was a great broodmare producing among others, the Swedish 14.2 Showjumping Champion Ard Ashe Grove. When I was little, the day she arrived I called her 'Snow White' and could not understand why anyone would call such a white pony Ashe Grey. It is ironic her predecessor is called Cinderella.
In '06 we also purchased the 2 y'old filly Croopers Vanilla Sky by Island Lad (same sire as Crosskeys Rebel below) out of a Rosenharley Rolley mare called Shannon Rover. We hope she will not make over 13.2hh because she would be a lovely mare for our son Conan to ride when the time comes. She has the movement we crave and if she doesn't make a super jumper we will eat our hats as she looks so athletic. Along with Garryhinch Cinderella we hope to breed a few nice foals again next year.

The Connemara Pony: These are the standards of the Connemara Pony in the Irish Connemara Pony Breeders Society .
These standards often vary from studbook to studbook across the world, but the Connemara Pony still wins hearts where ever they go.
