Glenormiston Celtic Pride was born in 2006 and bred by Barton & Sue Clarke of Glenormiston Stud in QLD. His sire is Domo Cavallo Praize, one of the most successful Connemara ponies in Australia, never beaten at a Royal Show.

Domo Cavallo Praize (sire)

Praize evented in open competition, being unplaced only once over a 10-year career at Equestrian Federation of Australia (EFA) events. He competed successfully in harness and in EFA show jumping and dressage competitions against horses of all heights. He also won the overall championship under saddle for all breeds at the Stud Pony Show in Queensland. With his impeccable temperament and amazing ability, he became a legend in Queensland and indeed in Australia.

Glenormiston Dulcinea (dam)

Glenormiston Celtic Pride's dam, Glenormiston Dulcinea, is by the Irish imported stallion Abbeyleix Finbar and out of Danish import Oxenholm Dulcinea giving Pride impeccable performance bloodlines. Glenormiston Celtic Pride is a personable young stallion standing at 14.1 1/2 hh and is bred to jump.


Pride's progeny are highly sought after, being top of their game for eventing, as well as for advanced pony club mounts. These horses are bred to jump with an excellent people-orientated temperament.

We breed 6 Thoroughbred x Connemara foals every year, available for $2500 each. This cost includes:

  • registration into the Connemarra society
  • microchipping

The Connemarra/thoroughbred combination has seen much success in the eventing scene as well as showing and dressage. They are often regarded as the perfect all rounder.
