Welcome to our website, here you can learn all about our events which take place annually at Farrell's Field in Roundstone.
We are looking forward to celebrating our centenary in 2024. The Connemara Pony Breeders Society was founded in 1923 however, the very first Connemara Pony Show was actually held in the Monastery grounds in Roundstone on 15th August 1924 with over 150 Connemara Ponies entered. The opening ceremony included a performance from renowned cricket player Prince Ranjitsinhji who had relocated to Ballynahinch Castle. This show was the first serious step that would lead to the preservation and improvement of the Connemara Pony. We are working hard on a series of events for the weekend of the show and should be able to bring you details early in the new year.
We are a member of the Irish Shows Association, leveraging their support and guidance to bring you the best events possible. This along with our dedicated and hard-working committee and a list of honest, impartial judges who do not personally know the competitors or ponies, our sponsors and volunteers enable these events to happen.
We are always on the lookout for new volunteers so please reach out if you have a few hours you could spare.
