THE performance entry at the 15th annual Midlands Connemara Pony Breeders Show last weekend was one that many country show can only dream of. Over 300 ponies passed through the three rings at Mullingar Equestrian, where big prize money was a major draw.

The committee worked hard to get extensive sponsorship for the show and the commitment from main sponsors Willows Ingredients Ltd meant a huge prize fund of €1,500 in the working hunter championship.
