I am thinking about possibly breeding my thoroughbred mare in the next couple of years, if not sooner, and for some reason I am really drawn to the connemara stallions. I have always wanted a tb/connemara cross. My mare is very sweet, I broke her myself, she is fearless, and just about the best horse you can really ask for, does anything, loves water, is not spooky a bit, she is about 16.2 hands. If i breed to a connemara I want the baby to have some height to it, so I can ride it comfortably and not look like an idiot haha I am about 5'4 and average built. Also I want a stallion who is going to pass on his even temper and kind personality. Does anyone have any suggestions on connemara stallions that they have had success with? I am looking to event the baby. I want something really athletic. It will probably be awhile until I breed her. I am just excited to look at the prospects!!! Thanks ahead of time!
I would recommend Moxley Duncan, at Blue Ridge Farm in VA. He is a 14.1+ hh buckskin.
He won an eventing award when he was competing, has huge scope, is a lovely mover, and most importantly his personality and temperament are TOPS. Adults and kids ride him, he is bred live cover with just a cotton rope, etc. He is just a total sweetheart.
He has been bred to several TB mares in the area. Most of the foals are buckskin/dun, and usually average 15.2-15.3 hh.
