(My thanks to Ciara and Aoife Connolly for photo and information). Connemara ponies and their riders from all corners of Ireland came to Duffy’s Equestrian Centre in Claregalway on 7th August.to compete in the 14th Annual Championships Finals Show.  Due to the organisers commitment and hard work the Show was an all-round success, in spite of a tempest that took over the east-Galway venue in the afternoon. The Supreme Performance Champion repeated the feat of the previous Sunday’s Midland Breeders Show when Marjorie Hardiman and her home-bred gelding Creganna Dandini (Cashel Bay Prince) took home the Champion’s Tophy once more. Creganna Dandini had earlier won a Jumping Competition with daughter Jane Hardiman and the  Ridden Championship, Rider over 16 years, with Marjorie Hardiman.

  1. Hello Niamh

    My name is Sean Daly and I was in Ingrid de Hoedt class in Trinity. I lost contact with her but found her again on your blog as she is breeding Connemara ponies in New Zealand. We will be 30 years qualified next year and I was hoping you would have a contact email for Ingrid

    Many thanks
