The Breeding Program:
Most of the foals from our Connemara breeding program carry either the "Foothills" (for purebreds) or the "Piedmont" (for halfbreds) farm prefix on their American Connemara Pony Society registered names. These horses and ponies were bred from breeding stock with excellent pedigrees, which include both Irish and American Connemaras. Our program has consistently produced Connemaras with the athleticism and trainability demanded of the equestrian market, as well as the conformation, substance, temperament and type required to meet ACPS Inspection Standards and Approval (of purebreds). We are committed to maintaining the traditional Connemara pony characteristics of soundness, strength, versatility, intelligence and willingness, without having to sacrifice athleticism, beauty, movement, disposition and/or overall quality.

DISPOSITION: Our foals are gentle, sensible, people-oriented and very trainable. A great temperament is non-negotiable in our program.

HARDINESS: Substance of body and bone with great feet, heart and lung are of primary importance.

TYPE: All of our breeding stock is presented for inspection and approval by the American Connemara Pony Society. We produce attractive foals with correct conformation together with true Connemara type required of reputable breeders.

PIEDMONT CONNEMARAS: Our halfbreds are primarily out of Thoroughbred mares crossed to our Connemara stallions and out of athletic. We enjoy producing these crosses for the growing market of adult women, often with careers and families, who want to be competitive, safe and successful, while having a wonderful time on their well-matched mounts (not to large, not too small, not too fast, not too slow, JUST RIGHT!). Connemara-TB crosses are a perfect combination to meet thoses needs in a variety of equestrian pursuits. Often, Piedmont Connemaras are a great choice as a "move up" mount for the child with growing legs and ambitions.
