Sillogue Connemara Ponies - Co. Louth, Ireland

Sillogue Connemara Pony Stud. The main focus and indeed our passion is breeding Connemara ponies for performance in disciplines such as eventing, cross-country and showjumping.

Without question the demand has been and will be for high quality ponies with the potential to deliver performance. Simply put ponies in the marketplace with limited potential, will realise limited prices concurrent with today’s typical average. On the other hand ponies who have correct confirmation, temperament and soundness, along with equally important real athleticism and scope do and will continue to command a price premium.

Sillogue Performance Ponies

Since the Briscoe family started breeding in 1984 their mission has been breeding & producing performance Connemara ponies. They acknowledge how fortunate they were to start with brood mare Coillchru Esmerelda as their foundation.

Their strict dedication to a performance breeding program came to fruition in 2009, when Sillogue Darkie played a key role as the Irish Pony Team won the silver medal at the European Championships in Moorselle, Belgium. To be honoured along with the owners of Ballyowen Maybelle Molly at the annual Clifden Connemara Pony Show was the icing on the cake.

Later that year Sillogue Darkie was entered into the prestigious Connemara Performance Hall of Fame with Eamon Briscoe recipient of the Breeders Award.
