Irish Jumping Bloodlines

Born in 2002 and purchased in 2006 from Connemara, Nell has a lovely wide brow & golden coat and carries the best of Irish bloodlines including Abbeyleix Owen, Erislannan Hollyhock & Westside Mirah.

Her dam, Glenmore Kelly’s Owen, 2nd in All Ireland Loose Jumping as a 3yr old, has premium mare status and won All-Ireland broodmare championship in 2005, plus winning Supreme Championship at both Royal Dublin and Balmoral recently.   Her sire, Castleside JJ, showjumped at Grade A level, and progeny by both sire and grandsire Westside Mirah are very sought after as they can really jump!   She also has the Sparrow jumping line through Errislannan Hollyhock to Cuchulainn, a very successful showjumper and sire in Ireland during his short life.

All Nell’s foals are lovely laid back characters with athleticism, straight movement and have scope to burn.
If you are looking for the right attitude AND jumping ability, her progeny carry some of the best and sought-after competition genes to come out of Ireland.   I have pure and part-bred foals from her, and they have all been superb – and all jump!  Just look at how the youngsters are proud and hold themselves well – she produces pure quality!   

Nell’s part bred foals are real quality and all the ability, scope and speed that an event horse needs.

Her 2014 foal is by iconic connemara stallion Templebready Fear Bui – so many horses by him have excelled in showing and eventing.  TawnyDun Aengus is being kept to grade and stand as our stallion, and he will produce duns (buckskins) when put to a bay mare. Absolutely ideal for TB mares, to produce buckskin connemara x TB horses with the best of Irish competition breeding!

What better accolade is there for Nell?
