Quotes Hi there - I have been schooling a young pony for the last 6 weeks and from what I can work out, she is by your Connemarra Stallion. She is 4, was broken in by James bruce 12 months ago, but never consequently ridden until she was delivered to my place. When she arrived, she was really overweight and found the whole schooling idea abit hard - so I worked her over the farm next door for 10 days or so until she lost some weight and then started schooling her - what a lovely, trainable, pleasant pony - a real credit to your stallion - well done ... (she) has really impressed me with her trainability and temperament. Quotes

Quotes I have been lucky enough to help Talisman Farm develop Crossiebeg Brennan's jump schooling - he has a super athletic jump and a great attitude to his work. He's always a pleasure to take out and about, including at clinics, training days and competitions. He gets fans wherever he goes - firstly for his 'awww' cute factor, then they see him go - awesome! His jumping has come along a lot with minimal opportunities with XC schooling, including some Novice fences and showjumping schooling to 1.15m. His back end is outstanding over a fence. We can't wait to get him back into action next season - pony power! Quotes

Quotes I am currently riding Crossiebeg Brennan on behalf of Talisman Stud. Brennan has been one of the most obliging horses I have ever schooled. We're currently doing dressage & soon showhunter. He has a great work ethic, applies himself diligently, learns quickly & always tries to please. Brennan has a great future in any discipline with his attitude, conformation & paces. I would recommend him to breeders looking for a safe child's pony or small adults breeding for a competitive small horse. Quotes

Rider - Crossiebeg Brennan

Quotes We were contracted to teach Crossiebeg­ Brennan to collect for semen shipments & having handled numerous stallions in the past I must say that Brennan has the most wonderful temperament and is stunning to boot. So much so that he would be one of my first choices to breed to. On top of that Nick and Louise are some of the nicest and most professional people in the industry to deal with and would have no hesitation is sending one of our mares to them. Quotes

Quotes Louise has that wonderful combination of professionalism and friendliness. She has the knowledge, equipment and facilities to provide everything our mare needed, the moment she needed it. Louise also has a wonderful husband and daughter which ensures the farm is not a sterile business but a warm, loving family home and I think that contributes to the temperament of her magnificent horses.

Quotes My mares have lived with Lou and Nick for many years now whilst I was overseas. Maude has produced some fantastic foals by Hamish and Reilly. But even better has been the care that both the mares have received from Lou and Nick. Knowing that their welfare is always paramount gave me total peace of mind 13000 miles away. They are still there and will remain so. Many thanks to you both. Caroline Quotes

Quotes I have the pleasure of owning a gelding by TF Hamish. I have only recently made contact with Louise to let her know I now own this horse. She has been very friendly and welcoming. She has told me my gelding was Hamish's first born. That makes me feel very proud. He is an up and coming dressage star. Getting very favorable comments from judges. He scored an 82% and 72% in his first proper competition. He has the most awesome personality, a real hard case. Very giving and willing to learn. Quotes

Quotes I purchased a lovely young 3/4 RID bred by TF, he is a well handled, well rounded young horse and a credit to his breeders. My experience dealing with TF was easy and friendly. Lou and Nick invited me into their home, accommodated me for the night and allowed me to have a good look round all their horses. I believe TF fills a niche in the market for adult amateur riders who still want to ride well bred, capable, athletic horses with fab temperament. Now I just need Rory to grow! Quotes

Quotes "I'm happy to recommend Talisman Farm. They breed lovely types of horses with good temperaments and every horse on the property is extremely well treated. They provided top care to my high maintenance mare and kept me informed every step of the way. It was lovely to not have to worry at all about her, as I knew she was getting the same care as she would at home. She came home looking a picture and now I'm eagerly awaiting a foal." Quotes
