  • Bio:

    Situated in Renvyle, Connemara, we have been breeding and training ponies for many, many years now and have a long line of successful champion ponies in our lineage. Here at Diamond’s Equine we specialize in the training of potential champion performance and competition Connemara ponies. We start their career at 3 years old and gradually develop their understanding and ability and after a patient learning experience they are ready for sale as a 5 year old, top quality Connemara Performance Pony. We also source broken and riding Connemara ponies and continue to train and bring them on to a level of performance before we find them a suitable home. We have a large well stocked facility and wide choice of excellent quality ponies on hand, for sale all year round. We work intensively on our ponies and strive to make them reach the highest level of performance. All of our Connemara ponies are subject to a rigorous veterinary examination to ensure that you buy a healthy well trained potential champion. We are home to Silver Shadow and Ice and Fire d’Albran, two of the most successful Connemara Performance Ponies, both Grade A Show-jumping Stallions who have excelled throughout Europe and are now both available for A.I. their bloodlines being some of the most sought after in the Connemara Performance Industry. Home also to Sea Storm - 2018 Clifden Puissance Winner and Team Ireland winner at RDS Dublin Horse Show & Clifden. We pride ourselves on being one of the longest established families associated with the Connemara Pony and take great pride in all our ponies that we produce. In the 1970s William J Diamond’s Supreme Champion Stallion “Kimble” and his mare “Queen of Diamonds” produced “Abbeyleix Owen” whose progeny now accounts for some of the most successful Connemara Performance Ponies today.
