Twenty Class 1 Connemara fillies gathered at Creagh Equestrian Centre last Sunday (18 July) for the first performance filly showcase, organised by the Connemara Pony Breeders Society (CPBS).

After their loose jumping assessment, suitable fillies gained a bronze merit which the performance committee organisers hope will enhance their own and progeny value.

Pictured is John Mulvey who produced Phyllida Collier-Stokes’ Glenayre Mystical Mist (Coosheen Stormboy) for the showcase.

John, from Co Wicklow, is the leading Irish event horse breeder in the latest WBFSH rankings. He bred the very special Brookfield Inocent (Inocent) who is ridden by Britain’s Piggy March.
