KILLUSTY PONY SHOW 2005

Report and results of Show held on 2nd July 2005 at Claremore, Killusty.

The 2005 Killusty Pony Show was held at Claremore, Killusty, Fethard on Saturday 2nd July. The Weather Steward will be retained for at least another year as, after a truly appalling weather forecast, he managed to keep the rain away all day so that the Show could go on in unexpected and welcome comfort. In the led Ring the A.I.B. Slievenamon Championship and Best Filly prize went to Joe Whelton’s Golden Grove Skylark bred by a long term stalwart of Killusty Show Sean Maher now sadly gone to his reward. Peter Byrne’s Wyndham Aristocrat filled the Reserve spot. Peter Byrne too has been a great supporter over the years and thankfully he is still with us. The Cup for the best local was taken home by Noel Coffey for his Ballintemple Star, second in the hunter pony young stock. Peter Byrne claimed the Dawn Fresh Foods Championship in the broodmare ring with Wyndham Symphony with West Cork’s Martin O’Sullivan’s Little Blue in reserve. Martin McMahon too came from Cork to claim the Welsh Championship with Muskerry Charisma with Ann Grime’s Windsong Remember Me in reserve. The Butler Connemara Championship went to Dublin with Patrick Geoghegan’s Dangan Patricka topping the list with Joanne O’Connor’s Greyrock Finisterre in reserve. She only had to come down the road from Ballinard.

Numbers were again down in the Show Pony Classes but the Coolmore Killusty Championship was claimed again for Cork by Regina Daly’s Fofsway Symbolene with Ann Grimes Rollswood Joseph in Reserve. Numbers were seriously up in the equitation classes, most particularly in the Equitation Jumping classes and the Tate Croome-Carroll Memorial Equitation Championship was truly earned by Esme Mansergh-Wallace with Chloe Murphy in reserve.

In the Local Handy Pony Class Hazel Sheehan from just down the road from the showgrounds upheld the honour of Fethard and Killusty. The Special Lead Rein Class went slightly further afield , to Louanna Winters in Cahir. The Mini Classes were very well filled with, again, greater numbers in the hunter pony sections. The Mini Championship went home with Sean Scallan’s Barkway Sweet Pea to Wexford with Shane McNamara’s Balllykilty Flame in reserve. The Starter Stakes Championship headed for Kerry with Nikki Taylor’s Valmore Irish Mist coming out tops. This pony has a very local connection too as he is out of Gus Keane’s great old mare Douthwaite Martini who only left Killusty to go to Tom Relihan in Listowel when Gus went to his final home. The reserve in this championship was Patrick Geoghegan’s It’s a Boy Thing..

In the Show Hunter Ring there was no shortage of numbers to select from for Dermot O’Connor. Mrs. Tara Bricknell’s Open Show Hunter Champion was Elizabeth Freeman’s Moelgarnedd Dymuniad. The lovely little Welsh mare had as her reserve Basil Brindley’s Chantilly Phantom, having another great year. The Lady Lloyd Webber’s Novice Show Hunter Champion was Lorli Higgins Ballyboy Perry Merry with Erica Leonard’s Ringwood Puzzle from Limerick in Reserve. At the end of the day the Intermediate Champion did not come form the Show hunter division but from the workers with Con Davis Captain Scarlet shading it from Catherine Rawluk’s Littlejon

Thw Working Hunter Rings were in operation from early to late. Tony Ennis’ well designed and strongly built courses tested the competitors in noo uncertain fashion. The Gain Animal Feeds Novice Working Hunter Championship went to Moelgarnedd Dymuniad who had a great day all round. The Clonmel Oil Working Hunter Championship went to Linda Young’s Ardfry Ahab with Inspector Morse in reserve. Jean Pim’s Performance Working Hunter Championship was again Ardfry Ahab with Anarette Geoghegan’s Westmir Queen in reserve. The Green Working Hunter Class attracted a massive entry and was duly won by Matthew Holohan ,the boy from down the road whose Grandfather Billy had been a founding member of Killusty Show on Boolagh Matilda. The Show started promptly at 10 a.m and all but the last equitation jumping competition was finished before 6 p.m letting most tired competitors and there ponies get home in good time.
