Very Old Irish Bloodlines
Keira was our first filly to arrive from Connemara – purchased as a foal from the Clifden sales. A dark dun with a generous wide brow, kind eyes and a cheeky temperament, she is a true-to-type traditional Connemara pony with character!
Excellent old Irish bloodlines with influential sires Thunderbolt & Loobeen Larry, plus indomitable brood mares Muffy & Hazel Dun on her sire’s side, and Ormond Oliver and the Sparrow jumping lineage on her dam’s side. Kiera is typical pony born and bred in Connemara – the elevated trot and canter designed to cover rocky terrain with ease.
As Tully was a late foal we decided to give Kiera a year off – which has not yet finished! My daughter is competing her, and they are both enjoying themselves in hunter trials, ODE’s and jumping.
Then I took her on for dressage, and she is a natural. She has now found a lovely home quite local to us enjoying long hacks and distance riding, with a few competitions in between.
