Welcome to Lanburn Connemaras
Showing 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 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. 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.  Video at bottom of Our Ponies page.

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.

Invitation to Judge in France 2021

Update: Due to Covid19 it is now very unlikely I am going to be able to to get to France this year.  I am absolutely gutted.
I am honoured to have been invited as a member of the CPBS Senior Panel to Judge at the Association Connemara Morvan Bourgogne, Dijon, France on July 24th 2021.  Really looking forward to this.

Breeding for the Future

Dun an Oir Rosalind (s. Callowfeenish Mairtin d. Dangan Cailin). In Nov '20, the Stud purchased the amazing broodmare below, Rosie.

Rosie is one of the last breeding mares by Mairtin and we are very grateful for the help of Laura McWeeney and her wonderful family.  She will be travelling across to the UK in due course.

Stud Groom
This year we have been very fortunate to have the wonderful Stephanie Hill join us.  Steph is a wonderful asset to the stud. She also runs her own business 'Love Lacey Pets', looking after animals and walking dogs.

Oncept Melanoma Treatment
Canal Village Poacher - I have added some supplements for Mossie - GWF XLamAid . Mossie started his treatment for Melanomas with Oncept in Sept '18.
