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.

Dun An Oir Rosalind
(s. Callowfeenish Mairtin d. Dangan Cailin)
Rosie arrived with us safely, on the 31st August. Here is our beautiful girl that we bought back in November 2020. She started her journey on 26th August, leaving the Fallon's expert hands to travel with Gillies Transport. Video of her arrival is above.

Rosie is an absolute 'Angel', such a pet. Very easy to deal with, just an all round good egg. One couldn't wish for a more laid back amenable lady and traditional 'Old type' Connemara.

We are still looking for another very special mare of 'Old type' with 'Old bloodlines' to join our stud.
