Welcome to Lanburn Connemaras
(Cloonisle Cashel x Glencarrig Aedin)
The Queen of the In-Hand ring was the late Glencarrig Eleanor. The late Margaret Furness said to me, Ellie having won the M&M Supreme at Surrey County Show under Ann Berryman-Horne for the Supreme title, 'She walked everything else out of the ring'. Ellie was special. Sadly, though we tried many times, she only ever had one foal which had a deformity in its foot and had to be pts. She won a multitude of championships incl 5 x Non Breeding Champion and Reserve Supreme Ch BCPS, M&M Supreme Champion Surrey County 2004, M&M Champion Hants County 2008. She was simply, legendary. There is video of her winning the New Forest & Hants County Championship in 2008 on the 'Our Ponies' page, the narration alone is worth the watch.
CANAL VILLAGE POACHER
(Callowfeenish Mairtin x Village Colleen)
My pride and joy is the amazing Mossie who joined us aged 12. Proving to love dressage he learnt everything I could teach him in 6 months, he won the NPS Novice Dressage Championship in 2012. Our trainer is John Lassetter (Cadre Noir). Mossie has given me the best rides of my life.

PRESS RELEASE - MONDAY 1ST FEBRUARY 2021
Celebrating 50 Years of Lanburn Stud
This year is the 50th Anniversary of Lanburn Connemaras. The Press Release is available HERE Monday 1st February 2021. Many thanks to the wonderful Kate Wobschall for being our PR person. She will be fielding all the questions.
Breeding for the Future
In Nov '20, the Stud purchased the amazing broodmare Dun an Oir Rosalind (s. Callowfeenish Mairtin d. Dangan Cailin). Rosie is one of the last breeding mares by Mairtin and we are very grateful for the help of Laura McWeeney-Bolger and family. Rosie is going off to stud very shortly, to a very special stallion, who will remain secret until she arrives in the UK scanned in foal :)
This year we have been very fortunate to have the wonderful Stephanie Hill join us. Already, she has proven to be an asset to the stud. She also runs her own business 'Love Lacey Pets', looking after animals and walking dogs.
Summer Virtual Shows 2020
Glencarrig Dolly had an amazing Virtual show season. The finest win of the year was the Irish Shows Assoc Virtual Show where she was 1st in the Brood Mare Class and Reserve Champion Pony. In the BCPS series she won Round 2, the biggest class of the series with 28 entries, under Julia Woods. She was 2nd in her first ever Mixed M&M Class of 36 entries in the NPS Virtual Show.
The Brood Mares
Glencarrig Dolly has been scanned 'in foal' by AI to Jo & Richard Williams' Spinway Blackthorn. A priority is Lanburn Lismore, Great Granddaughter of MARBLE as she is 23 years old this year and is the very last breeding pony from Mum and Dad's original line from the famous stallion Marble. Jo & Richard are taking Miffy off to meet Caspar in person to see if she will take.
Oncept Melanoma Treatment
Canal Village Poacher - I have added some supplements for Mossie - Omega Equine SarcXpel, Vitality and Ulsoothe plus GWF Immune Aid. Mossie started his treatment for Melanomas with Oncept in Sept '18. Dr Philip Ivens from Buckingham Equine Hospital now comes every 6 months to give him his booster.
