Cashel Bay Prince

Some recent wins were at the Irish Pony Society Western Area Show at Dartfield, Loughrea on 31 May. Cashel Bay Prince is owned by his breeders, Robert and Barbara Fallon and is ridden by Claire Crawford of Corrandulla. He is a 6 yr. old stallion by I Love You Melody out of the owners’ mature prizewinning mare Coosheen Pheasant.
The pair have had many successful outings in the past 2 years both in Ireland and England. He is shown here winning the over 16 Ridden Connemara Class at Dartfield and they also came 2nd in their Connemara Working Hunter class and won the Connemara Championship at the this I.P.S. Show. They more recently won the over 16 ridden Connemara Class at Galway County Show on June 14.                                                                   At the recent Irish Pony Society two day Show at Cavan Equestrian Centre, Aug. 1st and 2nd, this stallion swept the boards, winning The Supreme Championship of the Show with rider Claire Crawford.  But that is only part of the amazing success story of Prince at this Show.  For starters he tooks the Novice Working Hunter 153cms. class and the Novice Chamopionship with rider Melanie Young.  He went on to win both the under 16 Connemara Working Hunter, the over 16 Ridden Connemara and the Ridden Connemara Championship as well as the In-Hand Connemara Championship.  He emerged from the three part Tom Robinson  Gold Cup contest with top marks in the 153cms. section, winning that prestigous trophy, and was finally awarded the Supreme Championship of the Show with 39 points out of a possible 40.  Whew! you might say, and as we say in Ireland, “now follow that”.  Well done to the Crawfords and Robbie Fallon and all concerned.
