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.
