Kingswell Connemaras is pleased to offer at stud the imported Champion German Connemara Pony stallion *Smaragaid Cliff. He is by the Danish dressage champion Munkholm Cobbergate (Ardnasillagh O'Flaherty x Oxenholm Cora) out of the German Federal Premium Mare Shamrock Bright Roxanne (Power Boy x Bright Pearl). He was bred by Martina Ferfers of Smaragaid Connemaras in Germany. You can see even more pictures of Cliff and his extraordinary family by visiting Smaragaid Connemaras. Smaragaid is Irish for emerald.
*Smaragaid Cliff brings new, exceptional bloodlines to the U.S., offering well-known and respected European Connemara Ponies close up on both sides of his pedigree, including multiple Danish Elite mares, Danish Elite stallions and German Federal Premium mares as well as champion Danish dressage stallions. Cliff is a third generation dressage champion.
Cliff's progeny proves that he successfully passes on his own award-winning ways and those of his famous ancestors.
According to a 2013 report by the Connemara Pony Breeders Society in Ireland, Cliff is among the best possible outcross stallions for mare owners. To quote the report: "Many of these rare line stallions are free of Abbeyleix Owen, Mervyn Kingsmill, Hazy Dawn and Ashfield Sparrow. Consequently, they and some of their daughters are ideal for developing outcross stallions for breeding with the large numbers of mares from overused stallions." Cliff's grandfather, Ardnasillagh O'Flaherty, is listed in the report as a rare line stallion. Cliff also has none of these 'overused stallions' anywhere in his pedigree.

Cliff has been inspected and approved by the American Connemara Pony Society and earned the honor of being named a Premium Stallion, the ACPS's top designation for inspected ponies.
