Ireland’s first show pony sale

Posted on | 0 Responses

Breeders and producers of show ponies in Ireland have a new outlet to showcase stock -The Goresbridge Horse Sales.

The Goresbridge Horse Sales’ new sale which begins on 1 May is aimed at ponies for the showring and registered show pony youngstock, hunter pony youngstock, ridden show ponies, ridden hunter ponies, working hunter ponies and all sections of the Welsh studbook are to be included.

Organiser Gerry Fennell of Greenfield Stud, Co Westmeath, breeds Welsh part-breds. He told H&H: “There’s no formal shop window for show ponies in Ireland, so I worked with another stud to solve that. There is lots of enthusiasm here for show ponies and we’d heard complaints there was nowhere to buy or sell them.”

Mr Fennel plans to hold two shows a year after the monthly sale at Goresbridge.
