Great video from a very knowledgable, experienced horseman and top showjumper Francis Connors on the benefits of Traditional Irish breeding, with a nice feature of his chestnut mare, Uskerty Diamond Lady by our stallion Carrick Diamond Lad.
We’re excited to continue to preserve and promote the Traditional Irish breed here at Greaghwillan Stud, especially with our promising young stallion Carrick Diamonds Diamond (video link: https://youtu.be/82lwe9UlvAg ) joining his sire on our stallion roster this year.
We are delighted to announce that Carrick Diamonds Diamond will be joining our stallion roster at Greaghwillan Stud for the 2021 stud season. Born 2018, this homebred 2 year old colt is one we are already very excited about! With 72% Thoroughbred blood, his full Traditional Irish pedigree needs little introduction. He is by the legendary 5* rated Carrick Diamond Lad and is out of the thoroughbred dam, Musical Trix, by Executive Perk. Like his father, this horse is a super mover with great elevation and a temperament to die for. Available to view with full set of clean x-rays and veterinary certificate.

Lovely video of Carrick Diamond Lad’s first foal born in Kenya, a filly out of a Boerperd mare. Delighted for you Venetia Philipps. Would love to pay a visit someday, however it doesn’t look like you need any advice as it seems you’ve already made a great start at producing the best Irish Sport Horses in East Africa!
“Hi Tom- Thank you for making this possible- a Carrick Diamond Lad filly arrived on Sunday out of a Boerperd mare- really hope over the next few years we might be able to get you out here to kenya and you can give us some advice on how to breed the best Irish sport horses for East Africa!”
“So much love for Munchie (Diamond Duette, by Carrick Diamond Lad). A few green moments, but she smashed a respectable test and clean double clear at her first CCI4* _S Great Meadow International this weekend.”
Congratulations to Harry Wainwright and Muckno Princess by Carrick Diamond Lad on a very successful show at Bolesworth International. The pair were placed in some very competitive classes every day picking up a 4th in the 1.40, 7th in the 1.30 and 8th in the 1.35 Accumulator. Below is a video of them jumping to finish 4th in the 1.40. Well done to all involved!
