Pure-bred Connemara Ponies

High Performance Riding Ponies


Performance has always been the bottom line in Connemara Pony production here: the Evans brothers, Alexander and William rode their ponies from Bruckless to Clifden in 1987, covering the long road in six days before entering the ponies into the rings. They rode Sweetwall Wanda (M8389) and Bruckless Gaffalla (shown below, 2007)(G1204) respectively, selling both ponies at Clifden that year.  In 2008, Gaffalla found his way back home in retirement after a most successful career in Irish Pony Club and Riding Club activities.

Bruckless Mares


Breeding implies selling stock and frequently there are ponies for sale at Bruckless. Some young fillies are being kept with the intent that they become brood mares retaining the breed lines of the present mares.

Pure-bred Stallions


This leads to a change in the sire kept up until now,so with regret, Linsfort Boy has been sold. Bruckless Echo, a stallion of Linsfort Boy/Bruckless Emer breeding, is presently standing with Ivan Stewart of Horn Head, in north Donegal. Bruckless Homer was presented for inspection by the Connemara Pony Breeders' Society during the Spring of 2010 and was passed into the Stud Book as a stallion. He is also standing at Horn Head.
