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.

GLENCARRIG ELEANOR
(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. 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.

CANAL VILLAGE POACHER

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.

Celebrating 50 Years of Lanburn Stud
This year is the 50th Anniversary of Lanburn Connemaras. The Press Release is available HERE. Many thanks to the wonderful Kate Wobschall for being our PR person.

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 McWeene and her wonderful family.

Rosie has been covered and has been scanned 'In-Foal' - Hooray!!

She will be winging her way to us in the UK at some point during the next couple of months.

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.

The Brood Mares

We are awaiting the arrival of Spinway Blackthorn and Glencarrig Dolly's baby who is due in June!

Lanburn Lismore, Great Granddaughter of MARBLE 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.  

Miffy is currently with Jo & Richard and we have to cross everything and hope she will be coming home with another baby Caspar.

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.  

Dr Philip Ivens from Buckingham Equine Hospital now comes every 6 months to give him his booster.
