Shanna Connemara Pony Stud
Shanna Connemara Pony Stud is situated in South Connemara.
We are a small family owned stud that believe in quality not
quantity. My Father Jimmy always had ponies on the farm but
in 2000 we decided to start showing our ponies and since
2011 we have got involved in performance. We are known for
breeding, producing and owning ponies that were champions at
all major shows in Ireland.

|The stud aims to breed quality correct Connemara ponies
that are capable of competing in their chosen discipline be
it in-hand showing, showjumping, eventing, dressage, working
hunter or leisure.
We have two resident stallions, Shanna Larry and Too Much
Melody. Shanna Larry was born on our stud after we imported
his dam Skousboe Shamrock from the Sternberg Stud in
Germany. She was in foal to their elite stallion El Larry at
the time and as a result of this we now have our Champion
stallion Shanna Larry. He won Clifden as a yearling and is
now a champion working hunter and ridden stallion. Too Much
Melody was bought in France from the Melody stud as a
yearling and he will start his showjumping career in 2012.
