Crossiebeg Brennan - Class 1 Studbook Connemara Stallion

Brennan's 2017/18 Stud Fee is $800* (with a LFG)

AI Available


Brennan arrived at Talisman Farm in February 2010. He is a Purebred Connemara stallion by the imported sire, Capparis Casanova out of Taihoa Cloudy. Brennan stands at 14HH and is being used to breed large ponies and smaller hacks.


Brennan has a fantastic attitude to life and is an attractive, intelligent and friendly pony. He was started by Gavin Morison in late 2010 and embarked upon his ridden career with Karen Monks and Jess O'Connor (Jess was only 14 years old when she rode Brennan at his first two competitive outings with very pleasing results). Brennan has been registered with the ESNZ and has competed in dressage at L1 and L2 - His scores have been between 65% and 74% so he was very competitve against the big hacks! Through no fault of his own, Brennan is without a regular jockey at the present time and is only ridden at home.


Brennan has been jump schooling with experienced event rider (and our horse Vet!) Louisa Broughton. You can see her testimonial on our testimonials page. He has schooled over Open XC fences and up to 1.15m show jumping. At his first ODE (NZPC80) he was 2nd after dressage on a score of 73.13% and clear SJ (his first and currently only SJ round completed in competition). We elected not to start him XC due to excessively hard ground conditions so he did not post a final score.


We are hoping that Brennan will have further competitive jumping starts in the future but his jumps jockey is a little busy being a busy Equine Veterinary Surgeon and raising a young family. Brennan doesn't mind - he's pretty happy covering mares and lounging about in the paddock.


Brennan has been inspected and is a Class 1 Studbook Stallion with the CPSNZ (this is an internationally recognised classification system). He scored exceptionally well and we are very proud of his inspection results,  which are as follows:


Type (proximity to Optimum Type) - 8.9
Conformation - 8.0
Walk - 9.1
Trot - 9.5
Movement - 9.3
Overall Total - 8.8

You can see many more photos of Brennan jumping and on the flat in our Photo Gallery or on our Blog and don't forget to check out the Video Gallery. Brennan's pedigree can be viewed on the Allbreed site, HERE.


Brennan is available by live cover and AI although his live cover book is very limited so you do need to book early. He has exceptional fertility with an almost perfect first cover success rate with reproductively healthy mares (young AND old!). You can feel very confident in his ability to get your mare in foal.
