I can’t rate the Tulira Stud highly enough, I bought two unbroken young ponies from Serena, one 3 year old, sourced by Serena and one of her own beautiful 2 year old Tulira bred ponies. Both ponies very different, the 3 year old turned out to be a super useful pony, everything Serena said he would be. Our Tulira pony has quality oozing from him literally, he was the easiest pony to break in and he always tries his best to please. Although professionally broken, he was then schooled on successfully and produced by a 17 year old. Our Tulira pony is very, very clever, honest and capable of undertaking literally any job. Our investment in our Tulira ponies was an excellent one, which I would highly recommend.

I would definitely recommend Serena at the Tulira Stud she did a fantastic job pairing me with Rodney. I had a limited budget but I am a fairly novice rider so I also needed something easy, Serena suggested an unbroken youngster she had, Rodney. I loved him immediately especially when he came to say hello when he was being loose schooled. He's been an absolute dream,  full of character and cheeky Commemara personality but a really good boy. He has been so easy to work with from the start. I have done everything myself, under the tuition of my instructor, he has made the transition from unbroken youngster to being part of the working family effortlessly. He loves his work and loves to please!  Whenever we go anywhere someone comes up to us to say either how remarkably well behaved he is or how good looking he is! He had also wowed the judges getting great comments from the dressage judges and winning his first jumping competition!

I'm really really excited about our future together.

The Summer of 2013 saw me return from a film in Hungary with a desire to buy myself a connemara.  I had been studying Tulira’s website throughout the 5 months I was away and my first weekend home I paid Serena, Millie and Serena’s parents a visit.   The range of ponies that Serena had were incredible from 143cm to 158cm and all of a good stamp and nice people as well.   I fell in love with a hazel eyed Glenn Rua Maxwell four year old in the field – he had been broken and turned away to mature.   By the time I had walked out of Serena’s gate, I was offered another film in Spain and Fuerteventura – so following a phone call, Western Max was purchased but left with Serena for 6 months whilst I was away.  The beauty of the production at the Tulira Stud is they are produced slowly but thoroughly.  When I came home, I picked up a pony with a thorough grounding, able to deal with most experiences he was to encounter.   He went on to elementary level under British Dressage rules, evented to BE90 and was Reserve Novice and Open Show Hunter Pony at the NPS Champs in 2017.   Anyone considering a Connemara should pay the Tulira Stud a visit – seeing these ponies in beautiful surroundings, living off good old pastures and in a natural environment is a pleasure and educational to say the least. 

I have returned with several of my clients for further purchases and they have all gone away with their ponies of a lifetime, as did I with Western Max.

"We unfortunately experienced the sudden death of my son's beautiful connemara mare who was just superb. We immediately had to find a replacement and the search began with many horses viewed, miles travelled and all  dismissed. We were loosing hope until I came across Serena who owns the Tulira Stud. Serena listened to the exact requirements. Unfortunately she didn't have anything but immediately pointed us in the right direction and a very successful one. Serena understood our needs and I have already recommended a dear friend to her to see whether she can source a quality horse. I now have one very happy son and horse - thank you Serena."
