Lanburn Connemara Stud Est. 1971 - Home of Champions
The Stud was established by Pam's parents, Bob and Margaret Blackburn, in 1971 when they bought their foundation mare and first Connemara pony for Pam to ride from Connemara, Ireland. On inheriting the Stud when Bob died suddenly in 2014, the usual workings of the Stud were totally thrown into disarray. For five years, Pam & Paul battled with the Local Planning Authority in order to get Planning consent to save the stud. Finally, in 2019, five years later, they were successful.
Due to the costs involved, there was no money left to set the site up. Therefore we are having to start very small, with few facilities and work our way up towards our 'Vision'. We hope people will understand and bear with us. We must open in order to bring in money for the Stud to survive.
