AS always, there is huge interest in the Connemara ponies at Dublin Horse Show this week and the showing action moves to Clifden next week for the Connemara Pony Breeders Society’s 96th Annual Connemara Pony Show from August 14th to 16th.

The Co Galway festival begins with the Green Hunter Performance Final for four-year-olds and an International Performance competition with teams from Scotland, England and Ireland travelling to Clifden from the Dublin Horse Show.
