Smokey and Alex won the 1st level Amateur to Ride Championship and came in with a 3rd place Top Ten in the Open section against the pros yesterday. Tracy Feb 2020


Ok, I have something personally brag worthy. Smokey, my 4 year old stallion, just got a Legion of Honor award from the Arabian Horse Association! This is kind of a big deal, at least for me, though technically it is the first level of a series of big awards they can earn. Here is the letter, he gets a plaque too, I’ll post a picture of that when it gets here. The ribbons below are what he came home with from the last horse show. Congratulations to Alex Chadwick, his rider and friend, without whom it would absolutely not have happened! (I need to get better pictures of his ribbons/loot, I’m not good at arranging these things.) Tracy Scheinkman (7/15/18)

Windy Isles Cisco Kidd

born 3/20/10
(*The Quietman X Arbor Lane’s Bailey)

Shannon Robbins from Peotone, IL, has sent this photo of her colt, Windy Isles Cisco Kidd . It was taken at their Region show last summer by Leah Smalley Photography. Cisco Kidd received a second in his big class of geldings.

Shannon can hardly wait to get on him, she says, “I am counting down until March 20, 2012 when he turns two!” She adds, “It is still a mystery to me why everyone does not have a Connemara pony.” ACPS News : Week of 11-27-11

Shannon Robbins excitedly writes that she has purchased her first Connemara Pony! Shannon says, “First let me explain that I had never heard of the Connemara Pony before coming to Windy Isles Farm. I have had Quarter Horses all my life and until I met this wonderful breed had never looked at any other horse or pony. I was given the privilege of riding the farm’s stallion, *The Quiet Man. After one ride on this magnificent creature I knew I had to have one of his progeny. I purchased "Windy Isles Cisco Kidd" nicknamed "Teddy" from Catherine Prendergast of Windy Isles in July, and have been in love with this breed ever since! Teddy’s dam is Arbor Lane’s Bailey by *Gunsmoke. The time and effort Catherine puts into preserving the true Connemara Pony is amazing; along with her business partner, Seamus Flanagan, they have done a wonderful job of promoting one of Ireland's national treasures. Cindy Cimesa is the trainer of the *Quiet Man and she has done wonderful things with him and, like me, has fallen in love with the Connemara. I hadn't ridden in years and was a little afraid, so she put me on the *Quiet Man! I am so glad she did, I owe him a debt I will never be able to pay. She is also helping me with Teddy, she is a Grand Prix Dressage rider and trainer, and an awesome asset to the Windy Isles Farm Family. I once asked them if everyone knew about the wonderful Connemara, and if they didn't why not? I am so very proud to have a *Quiet Man baby, and tell everyone I have a Connemara Pony and enjoy greatly telling them about this gentle, loving, and truly brilliant pony."


Peotone, IL: Jessica Cohen has sent news of her new foal born at Windy Isles Farm in Illinois. “Just had a dun (to stay dun! Finally breaking my streak of greys…) colt foal (sadly haven't broken my colt streak...) born on March 20th sired by *The Quietman (Moy Hazy Cove X Blathin Chonamara [by Cloonisle Cashel]) out of Arbor Lane's Bailey (*Gunsmoke X Foothills Maybee [by Balmullo's Beacon]). He's very fancy and flashy and I'm really happy with him. Still trying to figure out names but that'll come. Pictures are at a day old - weather's been yucky so we've kept him inside since, so no newer photos.” 10-Mar

Jireh's Justice
Foothills Waterman
x Woodchuck Ridge's Molly Malone
Bred by Tracy Wilcox; owned by Roni Feldman

Thought I'd let you know that I have owned "Barney", for 3 years. By Foothills Waterman out of Woodchuck's Molly Malone. He is a delight, lovely flatwork, quiet, sensible, loves to hack out. I don't jump any longer, but I let the pony clubbers get on him once in a while so he can have some fun over fences. He's a great horse and looks just like his Daddy Bucky.(2013)

I have the pleasure of owning Jireh's Justice "Barney". I bought him 3 years ago from a barn on Long Island, NY. We're doing 1st level dressage and he'll jump anything.

BARNEY, as he is known around the barn , is a fine example of the Connemara breed. By Foothills Waterman, out of Woodchuck Ridge's Molly, he is conformationally very correct with good movement and jump. A substantial little horse with good looks, an adorable temperament and ability, Barney loves to hack out , has lovely flatwork (his training has included several months with a professional dressage trainer) and is currently working on his jump training, schooling 3'6, stadium and x-country. (Patricia Hafen, NY)

A superb foxhunting/PC/all around horse for a child or an adult.
