REPORT 2013 

The Annual Inspection and Show:

The big event of the year is our annual inspection and show. 20 ponies were entered for inspections and 35 ponies for show. The judges were Henry O’Toole, Ireland, Jørgen Finderup and Ann Dupont both from Denmark. It was held over 2 days, the first day on Bornholm, an island in the Baltic Sea near Sweden. The weather was good and it was the hottest day of the year with 33,3 °C, which made it a bit of a challenge for ponies, exhibitors and judges.

In Denmark Class 1 for mares is divided into I. class + Medal, I. class and II. class A.

Two mares were graded in I. class on Bornholm.:

HESTEKLEWA MARY (Hesteklewa Wild Donovan/Skousboe Marvie) and

AC-SA’LINAS AF ENGVANG (Glencarrig Fionn/AC-Sa’lin Øndi af Engvang).

On Zeeland two stallions were graded in Class 1.

One mare got I. class + Medal + Best pony of the inspection:

ALBERTSHØJ CORADINE (Coosheen Finnegan/Frederiksminde Camilla)

Danish born Connemaraponies abroard:

We are delighted to see so many Danish Connemara ponies doing well, in and out side the Country.

We entered the year with the news from Olympia. Banks Vanilla owned by Noel Noonan and breed by Jytte and Peter Bank Mikkelsen had won Best of the breed at London International Horse Show – Olympia the 23. rd December 2012. Sadly, both grandsire, Øxenholm Marble Jr. and sire Teglstrup Duke of this succesfull pony was put to rest in the beginning of 2013. But it’s good to know that this line is continuing to do well, as Banks Timber, (Teglstrups Duke-Bank Squares Do-Do) full brother to Banks Vanilla, has been consistent in the showring in 2013. 6 times he has taken the title Supreme Champion.

BANKS TIMBER

In Holland Pilgaards Vogue (Maigaardens Killian/Kærvangs Candie) took a title as Supreme Champion and so did Maj (Nørlunds Cash and Go/Nørlunds Mia Maja) in Germany.

The stallion Frederiksminde Volcano (Lissroe Hurricane x  Frederiksminda Christel) passed the Irish inspection at the autumn 2013.

The stallion AC-Samson af Engvang (Skovsboe Morning Rock x AC-Soft Jewel af Engvang) – owned by Reimann Family in Germany -, has been standing in Ireland for 2013.

The stallion Rhinstroems Mighty Man (Øxenholm Markbook x Kirstinelunds Juicy), owned by Patty Schmidt, Germany, has been sold to South Africa.

Regarding ponies with Danish blood in their pedigree:

Especially in Ireland and Germany we can find a lot of good results.

At the Clifden show there were Danish blood  among the first 10 ponies in 11 showclasses (out of 17.)

The Junior Champion was by Laerkens Cascade Dawn – number 2 was out of a Danish mare Banks Vanilla.

SUNHILL ROBIN - Junior Champion

In the stallion-class 4-6 y.o., there were 13 competitors – 7 among the first 10 had Danish blood – 2 of them were Danish born.

Also in the ridingclasses we had good representatives  – the ridden Champion Nire Valley Belle was by Danish Frederiksminde Hazy Match. In 6 ridingclasses there were Danish names among the first 6 placed ponies

At the show in Northern Germany, there were 11 classes, where 21 ponies was placed among the first three – all with Danish blood or Danish born.

CONNEMARA 2013

Colt Inspection for 2013 will be held in three venues  –  24th April  Ivy House   Skelton,  Friday 26th April Stretcholt Farm, Stretcholt, Somerset  – Thursday 9th May  Norton heath Equestrian centre Blackmore.

AUSTRALIA

As in many other areas of the world, Nature has been most unkind to those residing below the line.   Extreme flooding in the eastern States, not once but to the present time, three times with widespread damage and loss of life has occurred.  In other areas huge bush fires have caused massive devastation.  It is pleasing to say that there has been no reports of loss of Connemara ponies in this extremely wide spread devastation.  It is therefore reasonable to indicate that there have been few shows held where the Connemara Pony could be seen to be giving their usual high performance  displays.

The Connemara pony Show case, a somewhat spectacular even in the Connemara world down under, was again seen at Werribee, Victoria in last September.   Ponies were presented from Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia.  An Irish Judge  found quality ponies in all sections  and awards went to all areas.  It is believed that this show will not be available next year due to cost factors, distances needed to be travelled etc.  This is indeed a shame as in its two years of showing the Connemara pony, wide applause has been given to those who worked hard in its performance.  As well as “In hand” classes Dressage, working Hunter, ridden and show jumping events were held.

In those areas where Shows could be held the Connemara pony excelled as always.

2013 Melbourne Show saw Gracefield  Park  Mr. Ed crowned as the top led Connemara Pony.  “Gracefield Park Mr. Ed”. Was also crowned as the Champion Connemara at the show with reserve Champion being awarded to “Kahean Snow Blossom”.   Unfortunately there are no other results available for the Melbourne Royal.

Castle Hill, New South Wales, produced a great day for the CASTLE HILL Show but unfortunately the numbers of Connemara Pony entries was down on last year.  The judge however commented on the standard of those ponies presented.   Brooke Allan, produced the top mare/filly under 4 years of age with “Asham Ballybelle”  taking the first ribbon. “Asham Madonna also owned by Brooke was awarded the top rating in the over 4 years mare class.   Supreme Champion at this show was awarded to “Asham Madonna”

Tanunda South Australia saw a small but quality field of Connemara ponies on display.

Champion led pony was awarded to Glenormiston Rosanna and the reserve ribbon was placed on Innisfree Beaujolais. Led Purebred Gelding ribbon went to Glenormiston Connaught and the supreme champion Barogue led award went to Glenormiston Rosanna.   A strong field of Connemaras ponies went into the ridden arena.  Innisfree Beaujolais collected the ridden purebred Mare or stallion class.   Ridden pure bred over height was awarded to Glenormiston Connaught.  Pleasure Connemara pony award was placed with Glenormiston Connaught.  Ridden hunter Galloway award went to Innisfree Beaujolais.  This pony also was awarded the Working Hunter  Galloway class.

New Zealand

Waikato Show was held in October 2012.  Supreme Champion Connemara of the show went to Keltic  O Se.  Young stock foal/yearling was won by Glenormiston Rionach.  2 – 3yr old pony ribbon was placed on Glenormiston Rahanishka and this colt also was awarded the Champion young stock award at the show. The Mare 4yrs and over award went to Mungala Tuar Ceatha.

Canterbury  A&P Show in November 2012 also was well attended by the Connemara ponies of the area, and, from the awards list, the Connemara again displayed its quality and abilities.

Supreme Champion Connemara went to Tallyho Neptune, purebred youngstock award went to Windward Mickey; Purebred adult award was place with Tallyho Neptune.

Partbred youngstock award went to Glardon La Strofian,  Partbred adult ribbon was placed with Windward Hemi and the Champion purebred award went to Rednalhgih Hayman.

It is hoped that quite soon, the ICCPS website will be upgraded and a regular review of Connemara Pony sows etc. world wide will then be able to appear on a regular basis.  To do this of course those responsible for the continual reports of the Connemara pony world wide will need your full support. Someone from each Sister groups who will collate results will need to be allocated, then ensure results are sent to  the promotions officer and then onto the web master for inclusion.  A whole new system will hopefully come into place and we will be able to let ALL members throughout the ICCPS , the Mother Society and all those who are not Connemara orientated but, who read out website, will know know just how strong our Connemara pony is , especially  in the performance fields world wide.  The new moves have my whole hearted support and I trust that I will still be able to bring the Connemara performances  to you where  ever you are!
