Welcome!
Our exciting new equestrian concept is being developed around what we felt was a need for a facility which provides not only both informal and formal instruction in all aspects of horse and pony management, care, riding and competing but also the opportunity to spend some time relaxing and socialising in a long term supportive atmosphere.
At Drumalbyn our emphasis is on providing a safe, relaxing, supportive and fun environment for our ponies, clients, staff, volunteers and visitors.
 
We are a small private European style establishment providing lessons for children and adults and producing both children’s all-rounders and high performance sports ponies.

Blandings Connemara Pony Stud
Blandings Stud was established as a Connemara Pony Stud in 1971 to produce a quiet, capable, low maintenance mount for Pony Club, ARC, farm and general work. We have an enviable range of bloodlines which have been carefully sourced from Ireland, U.K, Germany, Denmark, France, Australia and New Zealand.
We also have some top quality TB mares, most with strong racing histories, to breed Connemara x TB dressage horses, eventers and showjumpers, and some smaller mares to produce the ultimate child's pony.
