Hi,

I've got a registered pure bred Connemara with all of his papers etc BUT he's 15.2hh which I am pretty sure is "too big" for Conne's?
If I was to enter say a pure bred M&M class would he still be eligible or because of his height would he be disqualified?
(As you can tell I've never done any showing or the like - but seeing as everyone who sees him has said "oo are you doing a M&M on him or a working hunter"etc I sort of thought why not give it a go!)

Thanks

Rhi

He is over height (exceeds 148 cm/14.2HH) so you can't compete him in any class as a connemara which is an affiliated class under the jurisdiction of the British Connemara Pony Society - ie PUK, NPS etc.

You can do over height classes at the Breed Show and compete in other showing classes like WH, Riding Club Horse etc.

Hope this helps.

Oh how disappointing! I finally have a "pedigree" horse and he's too big haha! Oh well, I wouldn't change him for the world and as you say I could do local shows, WH etc as I'm not looking to seriously compete showing wise.

He looks gorge! I was looking for an overgrown Connie when i was buying and ended up with a Holsteiner x T.B /N.F!! A lot of people think she's one as she's the colour and shape of one! I would do working hunter classes with him,he'd do well. I'm aiming to that with my mare,she was bred to event and hunt. I'm also considering a hack class as she's l/w but not sure if she's dainty enough.

He looks very smart, I would be very tempted to plait up and show as a Workers, it seems to be where a lot of the overheight connies end up and do very well.

Yeah he is lovely - really struck gold with him which was nice after all the troubles i've had with previous horses!
Right I'm on the hunt then for a WH class nearby lol.
Is your mare in your signature? love your dogs- super cute! x
