Total Mothers Dream - Clooncree Cailin, 14.2hh rising 6 year old class 1 grey mare. Sire Glencarrig Lexus Dam Keeraun Rose.

This pony is an absolute dream, Cailin has shown for first time the past two weekends and not only was she super easy and unfazed by everything Cailin was 2nd in the ridden and 3rd in the inhand and the following weekend she went Derby Festival and came 6th in very strong class. She is bombproof and would suit anyone.

She is a future HOYS pony but would also make someone a fantastic allrounder.

Hacks out and is good to do in everyway such an easy mare. She adores people and has such a lovely temperament.

She was only broken end of Jan this year after having a foal last year.

  • Talented all Round Family Pony
  • Snaffle mouth

This lovely pony has been brought on slowly over the winter and spring and has proven to be a quick learner, very trainable, bold and showing huge potential over a fence when XC & SJ Schooling.

Totally unspoiled genuine novice with snaffle mouth, she has a delightful and sweet nature and only wants to please. She has excellent confirmation and good movement.

She is good to catch, in traffic, with farrier,vet & dentist. Goes in trailer or lorry. No stable vices. Vaccinations up to date.

We have shown her lightly in hand and she is only for sale now as a recent move has meant we no longer have jockey based locally to get her out and about.

A kind, knowledgeable long term home where she can continue her training and start her career in earnest, is a priority.

Correctly educated, this charming pony has the scope and ability to make a top class RIHS/HOYS standard WHP and/or super PC Eventer.

No Dealers.

For Sale on behalf of Breeder: Bally G. Ash 9 year old 143 Connemara Gelding.

Very sad sale of a top class schoolmaster that has brought Jenny through her junior years, teaching her the job but is now ready to move on to a new family to do the same. Ash is 100% straight forward and would be ideal for someone that wants an uncomplicated pony that knows his job and yet is a fresh face in the UK. He would also have the paces to be a lovely dressage pony.

He is one of Ireland's most consistent ridden pony's on the circuit. His breeder's would love him to have a fresh start here in the UK and as they are hugely attached to him, they would find it easier not to see him every week.

Ash arrived in the UK only last week and contested his first HOYS qualifier at the Connemara Breed show where he was 10th in a strong class.Good to hack out, clip, shoe, box.

Ash's breeders are looking for a lovely home where Ash can become part of the family. Home is very important for this special pony.
