Cavanagh is a beautiful big-boned correct Connemara Pony stallion (now gelded) from strong performance lines.   His flaxen chestnut colour is striking and very rare for Connemara stallions in Australia.  Cavanagh has the best temperament which was why he was run-on as a stallion prospect.  Cavanagh has fluid forward movement and is an excellent natural jumper although he is too young to have started serious jumping training under saddle. He was started professionally under saddle by Fred Watkins and then put out to mature and grow.

When Cavanagh was 4, we made the decision to geld him so that he would be able to have the opportunity for a proper performance career, and although we were sad to see him leave, we are thrilled that he is now in a fantastic dressage home and will debut in the competitive dressage scene once his initial training has been completed.

We have retained Cavanagh’s semen for stud use only, however his progeny may be available for sale in the future.
