Cáit takes special pleasure in showing visitors the unique Connemara area atop Irish bred ponies. Born and raised in Connemara, she will help you to get to know the real Ireland – meadows, beaches, pirate history and more!

She was born into a family of horse breeders and rode her first Connemara pony at the age of 4.  Competing from an early age, she took a break from competition during college years but her love for horses drew her back to her home town, where she invested in her first of six foundation Connemara mares. These mares went on to breed many top class Connemara performance ponies over the past 15 years.

With a strong belief that the Connemara pony is one that can be enjoyed by both children and adults, Cáit now breeds a larger type of Connemara pony to allow this versatility.
