to Kilkelly Farm
Situated in the very heart of Virginia horse country
between Middleburg, Upperville and Warrenton, we are lucky enough to have the best
facilities and a wealth of knowledge at our convenient disposal. Scores of Olympic riders
and coaches, such as Karen & David OConnor, Jimmy Wofford,
Leslie Law, and Joe Fargis live
here. All of these riding legends earned their medals on Irish horses. There are also many
state of the art medical and training facilities in the area which help us keep up to date
on the latest scientific practices and recommendations in nutrition, genetics, veterinary
care and agricultural management. These factors have proved an invaluable aid in the
training, conditioning and care our horses receive.
We breed and produce purebred Irish Draught and Irish Draught Sports Horses at Kilkelly
Farm. Our goal is to produce horses of the highest quality, with excellent conformation
and superb athletic ability combined with that distinctive, kind and sensible ID
temperament. We take great pride in our horses many accomplishments and we are truly
dedicated to the breed and strive to further promote them in the USA. We have a few
exceptional young horses for sale at all times; suitable for high level eventing, show
jumping & foxhunting.
In the past, it has been necessary to travel to Ireland to find quality Irish draught and
Irish Sport Horses. And to import them has always been at considerable expense and trouble
to a potential buyer. It is now possible to breed or purchase top class Irish horses with
impeccable bloodlines here in the United States. The Irish horse has been bred to excel in
every equestrian sphere, from showjumping, eventing and hunting, to dressage and driving.
Ireland has consistently produced world-class horses, and it is our aim to bring the same
superior standard of breeding, and exceptional training to the USA.
|| Increasingly, people who are
looking for trainability, talent, soundness, power and a close relationship with their
horse are turning to Irish horses. Often it is the all round versatility of the breed that
initially interests people, but it is the delightful temperament that makes it impossible
to live without one thereafter.
