Hen heads to the west

A FAMILIAR sight at the Connemara Pony Show in Clifden this week was three-time Gold Cup-winning trainer Henrietta Knight who loves her visits to Connemara.

Henrietta, whose Lockinge Connemaras sponsored the 10 to 15-year-old mare without foal class, was accompanied by British showing producer Simon Charlesworth, who is producing her growing herd of Connemaras, and the pair reportedly did some business at the show.

Judging

She will be in Ireland for another week as she is also judging at next week’s Dublin Horse Show at the RDS. Henrietta, who also manages the bloodstock interests of big-spending owner Mike Grech, is certainly showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon!
