2017 In-hand showing season begins!
Our first in-hand show of 2017 and a great opener for all of us at Manor Connemara Ponies. Manor April came second in a very strong 4-6yr old mare class and her dam Rosscon Windy Lady going fantastic in the 11-15yr old mare class taking second also. Sarah Dickinsondoing a great job as always showing in tropical temperatures! Both ponies turned out beautifully by Sarah and Anne Conroy.
Finally Joe Burke took out our gorgeous boy, Manor Duke for his first show of the year and we were delighted to take first in the Stallion class and to top off an amazing day for us, he also went on to win Supreme Champion! It goes without saying we are all ecstatic with the days result and looking forward to the rest of the season!
Thanks again to Anne and Sarah, Johnny Conneely and Joe Burke and to all the organisers, stewards etc at Athenry
