Congratulations to the ACPS on the wonderful success of the ACPS/Connemara Pony stand at the recent World Equestrian Games in Kentucky. Pony lovers everywhere owe the ACPS a big debt of gratitude for bringing the breed to the attention of a worldwide audience. The project was expensive and demanding, and it took courage and initiative to see it through. No doubt it will bear fruit. Well done ACPS – you were, as they say in Recess, ‘awesome’! Good job.
In other American news, we are sorry to hear of the death of the Irish-bred Grange Finn Sparrow (S-659) (Coosheen Fin by Dun Sparrow) bred by Maria Levinge and Clifden Champion in 1978. He was a top show jumper in Ireland, Austria and the States, and a true ambassador.
