Yggdrasil Babette just out of the placings today.

It was great to see that the Connemara Classes were well represented with 5 pure-bred ponies and 2 part-bred ponies.  The judge commented that the Connemara Class was the biggest stud pony class of the day which was nice to hear.  There are 4 ponies in the line up pictured below.

It was a no pressure day for our first show with the girls.  They handled everything with no fuss and behaved perfectly!  They were all such good ponies.

Maverick waiting in-between classes, this photo was taken while the mares were in the ring.  He was a bit closer to all the nice looking mares today at Culcairn (not as much room as there is at Albury or Lockhart) but Maverick handled himself like a true  gentleman…of course!  He also had to see what all the fuss was about at the side show.

Yggdrasil Babette in the show ring.  Her first show with us and she behaved perfectly.  Led classes only for this year.

Thanks again to Matt Lawry our photographer while also on daddy duty.

Dun Manus Mathilda is also at her first show with us after only having been at Dylanglen Stud for the past few months.  Like Babette, Tildy is an absolute sweetheart!

Our beautiful girls in the line up today.

The slightly windy day didn’t seem to upset any of the ponies, lucky the sun was out!

We are so proud of this boy for his first show season.  Champion Pure-Bred Connemara at Albury Show, Lockhart Show & Culcairn Show so far…
