Mary was specifically purchased with the intention of putting her to Jason, and grading her as an outcross mare with the KNN.  She has been approved as an outcross mare by the KNN on the strength of her BCPS Mare grading results.  Her first two foals by Jason have been outstanding colts, with size and quality. The 2022 colt was already 14hh as a yearling, promising to be a super small sports horse in the making, and the 2023 colt was reserved at 2 weeks of age.

Mary is a quality mare, with super balanced movement, which is inherited by her foals.  She has pure Class 1 breeding and achieved Class 1 status herself when presented to the BCPS for inspection in May 2021.

While she has not been ridden herself, being a broodmare to date, Mary has a typical performance pony pedigree, which contains some of the rarer sire lines.


Mary is out of the Class 1 mare Ballyerk Hazel - one of the foundation mares of the Ballyerk Stud in Ireland.  Hazel is performance bred as her sire is the legendary Tulira Robuck,  who as well as being a prolific sire of performance ponies, himself was Junior Champion & Reserve Supreme at Clifden, Champion Stallion at Clifden, Reserve Connemara Champion at R.D.S.,  25 Mountain & Moorland Ridden championships in the UK,  Supreme Champion at the E.C.P.S. Performance Show, Best of Breed & Third Overall in Mountain & Moorland Ridden at Olympia.   Hazel's damsire, Matty's Rock, was a consistent sire of SJ ponies.


Mary's sire is Clonfert Boy,  a Class 1 stallion who appears to be one of the last of rare branches of stallion lines, as his sire line is Carna Dun’s son Little Joe.  Many of these rare line stallions are free of Abbeyleix Owen, Mervyn Kingsmill, Hazy Dawn and Ashfield Sparrow.  

Carna Dun is one of the most influential stallions in the CPBS stud book. Out of the dun mare Double Dun  and a bay stallion Little Heaven, Carna Dun added height to the pony but also athleticism and particularly jumping ability . Noted as a sire of great mares, he also left some brilliant sons including the hugely talented dun Little Joe.   Little Joe was broken at five years of age and went showjumping eventually finishing as a Grade A.  He won many pony races, including the Clifden Derby five times, ridden by his owner at 11 stone.
