About Vanessa


Westside Vanessa an English Class1 dapple grey mare has joined the team here at Loguestown and is a very welcome addition to the gene pool.
Her breeding is exceptional, combining performance and quality English breeding allowing us to pick any of the really nice Connemara stallions we have here in Ireland.
She is a small but perfectly formed affectionate mare and a real athlete. She had a smashing foal last year so we will watch with interest how he develops.
Vanessa started off her career with a blast, winning three in-hand Championships. She was broken over the summer and has been brought on slowly. She has shown her talents for both showjumping and cross country over the later part of the season (2012). We will put her in foal next year but the stallion is yet to be chosen.
