Rescheduling of October Bank Holiday Weekend Pony Sales

To all the buyers, sellers and customers of Connemara Pony Sales.


Further to tonight’s announcement by An Taoiseach regarding the new COVID guidelines and moving to level 5, in order to comply with the guidelines set out and in the interest of everyone’s health and safety the correct course of action is to postpone our proposed sale this weekend.


It is our intention to reschedule for the 4th, 5th and 6th of December subject to government guidelines and consultation with our many buyers, sellers, customers and especially those who have ponies entered in this weekend’s sale.

We will be in-contact with all of those mentioned above by text, email, social media, postings on our website and telephone tomorrow. We will of course take guidance from the feedback we receive over the next 24 hours.

We would like to thank you for your help and understanding on this matter.
