Grey Mare 147cms born 1994 by Connemara Playboy out of Atlantic Peace.

My foundation mare.

Atlantic Peace, Promise's dam was an outstanding mare breeding consistently good offspring and winning in the show ring, including Dublin and winning the Archbishops Cup in Clifden.

Promise is a deep, scopey and athletic mare. She won in hand at Royal Windsor at 3 and was broken at 4 by Julia Spacey Woods.

She won the Mairhead Sheild for Novice ridden mares at the Breed Show at 5 ridden by Frances Goodsir and then began breeding some good stock.

Her first foal a colt was Braemar Be Lucky, by Churchway Daybreak, needs no introduction as he has been very successful at top class shows throughout his ridden career, including BSPS, HOYS and Olympia from 2004 - 2017.

Braemar Priceless came next by Bunowen Castle Ri and after being broken by Barbara Gallimore was sold as a broken 4yr old to a couple in the North of England.

Then Braemar Prima, Braemar Patience and Braemar Peace all fillies by Gentle Cascade.

Patience is in Somerset with Lousie Edgar at Stretcholt EC and Peace is in America with my friend Nicola White who used to ride for Sue Vivian.

Braemar Prima M2199-M1  -  HWSD/N

Born in 2007 a grey mare by Gentle Cascade out of Atlantic Promise standing 147.5cms. 


Prima is a very kind mare who was broken by Barbara Gallimore and then successfully shown in Novice classes by Elle Kivlochan.

At 7 she had a foal using FAI from Churchway Daybreak, Braemar Be Proud and is in foal for 2018 to Uisneach.

Shown in hand in 2017 and qualifying for the Tam-O-Shanter at the Breed Show. She was placed at the Breed Show and ridden through the summer by the owner!

This mare has a lovely head, great conformation and straight movement. But is just the best person to handle in all ways.

Gentle Lizzy M3-372004000033375 - N/N

Grey filly born 2016 by Glencarrig Knight out of Gentle Sally, (Glencarrig Patrick).


Lizzy was bought from her Hall of Fame breeder John McLoughlin as a foal. John named her Lizzy after Elizabeth a lady from the village who had he said 'character'!! So although easy to do so far, we await the character coming out in Lizzy. She has great bone and movement and we are hopeful she will make a useful addition to the stud.

Jane Somerset has kindly shown Lizzy in May this year and although not obtaining a win, she attended 3 shows and was 7th of 15 at Royal Windsor and had two seconds, on her other two outings.

Lizzy also had her filly Inspection to M1 with very good marks at the South East Area Show.

Broken by Robbie and Shona Supple in October 19 we are hoping that 2020 will be lucky for Lizzy.
