Crystal is our wonderful Connemara broodmare. Her sire, Greystone Creggan Winter, was a well known competitor in combined training. He was awarded the 1997 American Connemara Pony Society (ACPS) An Tostal Trophy for performance. Creggan had a very successful career at preliminary level, and also did well in dressage with limited showing and was Dressage Champion at the 1992 West Coast Connemara Show. Creggan won the purple Overall Champion ribbon the one time he was shown in hand against the big horses. He produced several offspring who competed successfully in combined training. Crystal's dam, Blue Hills Blue Eyes, was a lovely mare with good type and substance.

A eye-catching combination of athleticism and old-fashioned pony type, Crystal is a beautiful mare. She is energetic and bold under saddle--ideal for eventing or endurance riding. She is a very kind mare and a devoted mother to her foals. Crystal is always pleasant to be around and a genuine pleasure to own. Her dun color experiences fascinating changes with the seasons.

Crystal has produced three lovely fillies for us. Her 2004 filly is by *Kilfenora Windy Isles, who was imported from Ireland as a weanling. Windy has been inspected and approved by the ACPS. He was the winner of the 1997 ACPS Region 3 Connemara Futurity. Windy is grey (born bay) and stands 14 hands with more than 9 inches of bone. Windy is a true Connemara pony in type and has great substance and a pretty face.

Crystal is registered with the American Connemara Pony Society (ACPS).
