Killusty Pony Show 2002

Saturday 6th July 2002

The Committee of Killusty Pony Show were very fortunate on Show Day, Saturday 6th July, that the only summer storm in the area was the pony named Ardfry Summerstorm. Given the hazardous weather conditions to date in the Showing season it was a relief to all concerned that it was virtually dry all day. The atmosphere as a result was second to none and all appeared to go home happy. The weather had had an effect on the entry in the in-hand ring as many ponies have not come to hand as expected in the gloom. The worthy winner of the AIB Slievenamon Championship was Corkman Brendan Laffan’s yearling Barrera Fatal Attraction who left Patricia Relihan’s older Valmore Irish Mist in reserve. Best Local was Bridget O’Brien’s Rathsallagh Lady. The Southwest came to the fore in the Milestown Mills Stud Broodmare Championship when Michael Hourigan’s Ahane Sue from Lisnagry left Tim Hurley’s Romany Girl from Tralee as reserve. The Welsh Championship went to Cork when Michelle McMahon’s Muskerry Charisma again relegated Valmore Irish Mist. The exception to the rule of fewer ponies in the in-hand ring was the Connemara Division which goes from strength to strength. The worthy winner of the Butler Connemara Championship was the dun stallion from Clare John Joe Bolton’s Dunmore Dancer with Lishmar Lady Donna in reserve.

In the ridden rings there was quantity and quality in abundance. John Walsh of Dunmanway took the Coolmore Stud Killusty Championship with Hilian Sky Rocket with Sonya Steyn’s Red Squirrel in reserve. Mhairi Rawluk of Malahide in Co. Dublin was the first winner of the Tate Croome-Carroll Memorial Equitation Championship with Jane Byrne of Kildare in reserve. This is a new division, which is proving very popular as the rider is judged and not the pony. The Mini Championship rosette has gone to Tyrone when Stuart Whittle’s Ridings Tiger Lily triumphed over Nesta Fitzgerald’ Larchgrove June produced this season by Joanne O’Dwyer of Callan. Mrs Bricknell’s Open Show Hunter Championship retuned to Limerick when Mary Blennerhassey’s Moonlight Saunter got the nod over Aideen Davis’ Captain Scarlet from Wicklow. The Lady Lloyd Webber Novice Show Hunter Champion came from Cork in the form of Deirdre Kidney’s Kilshane Bluebell with Claire Crawford’s Ardfry Oberon in reserve. The long drive to Corofin in Galway must have flown for the Crawfords for it was a very successful day for their ponies. The GAIN Novice Working Hunter Championship was divided between Ballymoe Ardfry Shadowlands and Ardfry Summerstorm. Although the Starter Stakes Champion was Suzanne Garrigan’s Oldeourt Whiskey. Ardfry Ahab now owned by Linda Young was Reserve. In the Clonmel Oil Working Hunter Championship Ardfry Cedar, sire of Ardfry Summerstorm and Ardfry Oberon showed that he could do it himself and came Champion ahead of Ardfry Ahab. The Intermediate Champion was the Show Hunter, Sarah Collen’s Mayday of Harcourt ahead of Aoife Smithwick’s gallant servant Kilcreene Pine. In the Performance Working Hunter Ring, two well known ponies came to the top when M. Stephen’s What Next took the Championship with Brendan Watchor’s Bonheur in reserve.

Of particular local interest, the Local Handy Pony was won by John and Olivia Holohan’s Shangan Chrystal Boy. It also took the prize for the best pony from the Parish of Fethard and Killusty. Mary Hayden’s Watchful Anne from Drangan won the Special Lead-rein Class and there were many local prizewinners in the Working hunter rings. The Fancy Dress was a credit to all who took part as the standard was very high indeed. The Dog Show attracted nearly seventy-five entries and gets larger every year.

It was a long day with six rings in operation throughout. It could not have happened without the contributions from our landowner who was very brave to let us continue given the forecast, sponsors, judges, stewards, course builders and designer, caterers, car parkers and gatemen. During the course of the afternoon, the Show Chairman presented tokens of esteem to long-term members of the Committee Judy Butler, Christopher Horsman, Nicky O’Shea, Rosemary Ponsonby and Johnnie Sheehan, Any Committee would be privileged to have their like as members. For a very small village in Tipperary, Killusty Show is one of the biggest and most prestigious Pony Shows on the calendar. It was good to be back this year having missed last year due to Foot and Mouth and particularly satisfying to have completed our programme when so many Shows have been cancelled this year due to the inclement weather.
