What do you get when you cross the toughness and bravery of a Connemara with the blood and heart of a Thoroughbred? The ideal event horse! This week we’re drooling over three Connemara/Thoroughbred crosses that tick all the boxes, especially for a rider on the petite side like me.

The first one is already up and running, the second one is green but promising, the third one is a yearling filly, and the fourth one — yes, there’s a surprise fourth one — is the filly’s dad! He isn’t for sale but is at stud, so you can breed your own Thoroughbred and create your own cross!

Warning: Perfect Horse

⚠️Warning⚠️ Perfect horse, proceed with caution.

Louie (Lulu) is a 2017, Connemara/Thoroughbred mare, standing at 15 hands. Top of the line in every way imaginable. Recognized showing experience through novice, ample scope for moving up. Consistently low scores in dressage. Steady, balance, and athletic. Incredible jump. It breaks my heart even writing this ad because she is just that special. She has the most lovely disposition, sweet as they come. Stunning conformation, with movement to match. EASIEST horse to ride, always making the rider look good. Although young, this horse is as consistent as they come. She is absolutely phenomenal and I can’t say enough good about her. Everyone who has met/watched her go will also say the same, she has a large fan club. A truly special horse who is ready for her forever person. I am in no rush to sell her as I know how special this horse is, she will only be going to the best of the best home. I fell in love with this one so it will break my heart to see her go. It’s my job, that’s why she’s for sale. Happy to answer any questions, as finding her an elite home is my top priority. Until then, I will have fun continuing her training and competing her in young event horse championships.

Fancy Imported Connemara/Tb

Eamonn is 7yo, 15.1h, takes up the leg, and has a horse sized stride. Eamonn is a nice mover with three comfortable gaits. He was imported in the fall of 2019 with only a couple of rides under saddle. He has done a lot of ground work here in the States and has a solid foundation under saddle. He is still green as we have gone slow and done things correctly. He gets his confidence from his rider and therefore prefers a rider who is confident and quiet. He is beginning to understand leg to hand contact and improving greatly with each ride. He is very sweet and a total cuddle bug. He has impeccable ground manners all the way around. Will stand ground tied or cross tied for hours. Great for vet and farrier and loads on the trailer without hesitation. Eamonn is best suited for a rider who will take their time in bringing him along correctly, he could be brought along by a quiet and confident intermediate junior or amateur with the help of a trainer. Eamonn had an introduction to jumping when he was first imported and seemed to really love it but his owner wanted to focus on giving him a proper start in dressage. We could see Eamonn doing any discipline but feel he would excel in dressage, hunters, or eventing at the lower levels.
