BARROWBY CONNEMARAS

Breeders of Quality and Performance

Rosscon Direction

Outstanding Connemara pony with a leg at each corner, bone, quality and a true performance pony.


Rocco has shown successfully as a 3year old inhand winning the Great Yorkshire Show. As a 4 year old he came out undersaddle taking supreme of show on his first outing and champion m&m on his second outing, he was young handler champ at the northern breed show proving just how versatile he is handled by 7 year old.


He is schooling nicely over fences and has cross country schooled and hunted proving to be very sane.


Rocco would easily home produce and is suitable for a capable junior jockey, he does not need hours of working in or calmers. Good to do in every way there are no ifs or buts with this pony given his age. He is however not suitable for a novice.

Although currently only campaigned on the flat I feel his forte will be over fences, with a neat and tidy technique in front and behind that takes some sitting on, he is brave into and clear over 1m30 lose. I also strongly feel that if produced he is capable of junior SJ to a very good level.


His Sire is the well known Gwennic de Goariva whom himself won the Grand prix circuit in france in 2004 (1.25m) and His Dam is now present on the showjumping circuit in France.


There are so many possibilities for this pony. He would also plait up as a 14hh show hunter.
