dream for Glendale Farm began 25 years ago out of a need for safe
ponies for four children who wanted to ride and show ponies. Our
first Connemara pony showed up quite unexpectedly as an older
3/4 bred gelding son of Marconi, Rosehill’s Cinnamon.
was a gift in every way. He safely carried all four of the children
through every discipline of horse showing and general pony duties.
He was an angel in a pony suit and thus began our quest for other
perfect Connemaras. Thanks to a “tip” from Donna Duckworth
we found and added another solid citizen in Tre Awain Abigail
Adams. After all, there were four children.
1995 we bought Glendale Farm in the Shenandoah Valley and began
our breeding program. The children were all grown but each had
retained their love for riding and for these wonderful ponies.
And there were future grandchildren to consider. Our plan was
to find the best individual mares and breed them to exceptional
stallions -- to raise Connemara ponies that were handsome as well
as good performers who love people. And we are really happy with
what has happened in our breeding program.
purebred Connemara ponies from the old Aladdin line, from his
son Aladdin’s Denver, from the “*Rocky” line
and from an imported Irish stallion. We have Connemaras of all
sizes, personalities and capabilities but every one of them loves
people and would make a wonderful partner for anyone needing a
addition, a couple of years ago we added some big thoroughbred
and warmblood mares and have upsized our pony herd. Now we can
offer big Connemaras that can carry anyone anywhere a “pony”
needs to go.
