Connemara ponies from our sale have gone on to do great things, competing at Hoys such as Lough Derg Star, representing Ireland at the European eventing Championships such as Fanta Cross, winning the Blue Chip Feed Newcomers Championship like Derryinver Rocky, a medalist at the European Pony Championships like Kildromin Banjo, the holy grail a supreme champion at the Clifden Pony Show like Village Heather or competing at the world renowned Royal Dublin Horse Show.

Our sale has grown exponentially over the years from our humble beginning in August 1980 when we hosted our first Connemara Pony Sale. Since then we grew to seven sales held annually from four sales in 2020. This demand is undoubtedly due to the popularity of the breed and the great work breeders do in presenting their pony and owners for ensuring they’re ponies are broken

Our Sale takes place in the town of Clifden in the heart of Connemara. Clifden, the capital of Connemara, founded by John D’Arcy in 1812, is an excellent holiday location for taking in the spectacular scenery, sensational walking and cycling tracks, incredible beaches and of course the great food, drink and music that is part and parcel of the Connemara way of life.
