Frequently Asked Questions

What information is available to me on Connemaras Online?

A four generation pedigree and progeny report can be displayed on-screen with a facility to have either report emailed to the user as a PDF document. In cases where horses have competed under Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI), Showjumping Ireland (SJI), Eventing Ireland (EI), or Association of Irish Riding Clubs (AIRC) rules, there will be a link directly to that horse’s results in the relevant database.

How can I view the following?

  • Pedigree- Search for a horse, choose the relevant horse and click the Pedigree tab at the top of the screen
  • Progeny- Search for a horse, choose the relevant horse and click the Progeny tab at the top of the screen
  • Performance – Where performance is available for an animal one or more of the following logos will be visible; FEI, BE, SJI, EI or AIRC. Click the logo of the performance you wish to view. This will direct you to the performance results page for that horse with the specific sporting organisation.

Note: Some horses may be registered with more than one Equestrian sporting organisation.

Why can’t I find my horse on Connemaras Online?

Your horse may not be able for find the horse that you are looking for due to one of the following reasons:

  • The Connemara Pony Breeders Society Studbook only contains horses registered with them
  • The animal may be unnamed in the Studbook or have been renamed
  • The animal may have been born into a studbook other than the Irish studbook and has not yet been endorsed.
  • Alternatively, your animal may not be registered with a passport issuing body. In this case, you may be breaking the law. Note: It is now the law that every foal must be registered within six months of the date of birth.
  • A horse is Unnamed in Connemaras Online but is named in competition Names shown on Connemaras Online are those recorded in the Studbook. If an animal has not been named in the Studbook it will appear as ‘unnamed’. The exception to this is where an animal has been subsequently registered with the FEI and the Society is aware of a particular horse’s international competition name.
