Blackthorn has been a prolific winner at County level since the age of three with wins at The Royal Show , Three Counties and many more.
Blackthorn is true to type with a lovely nature, correct conformation and exceptional free movement. He was judged as a three year old by Miss Pat Lyne, who is known worldwide as an authority on the Connemara breed, where she commented on him being a very exciting young stallion for the breed.
Blackthorn’s offspring are proving to have inherited their sire’s exceptional movement, temperament and correct conformation. The Part bred Connemara "Kativa Dumbledore" has had an outstanding season in SHP classes, notching up a number of wins and Championships at the BSPS Summer Champs - a fantastic result for a 4 yr old pony! The pure breds that have been shown have also had fantastic careers to date.
