A pony with charisma, fabulous sport pony paces, excellent conformation

"The future of the Ashgar Connemara Stud is assured. The Ashgar Connemara Pony Stud was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1979. At this stage the Connemara Pony was almost unknown in Southern Africa. Patience Worthington had imported Kierin of Leam and was breeding Connemara Ponies in Zimbabwe and Sydney Press imported Clonkeehan Barna Boy (CPS 182) and Abbeyleix Tansey to Coromandel Stud, South Africa. My husband and I purchased a farm in Clarens, Eastern Free State, South Africa and I decided that the hardy and versatile Connemara was the ideal breed for this mountainous, harsh and cold environment"
