Pony Section

Dunmanway is an I.P.S affiliated show. Our pony classes are always well supported, with no shortage of quality stock on display.

We have classes for both led and ridden ponies. We also have a very popular local pony class, the winner of which is presented with the O'Connel Perpetual Trophy. A huge attraction in recent years has been the classes for minatures and shetlands. The champion Led Pony will be presented with the Gildea Perpetual Cup and the Champion Ridden Pony will receive the O'Donoghue Atlanta Perpetual Cup. We have also added a family riding pony class with prizes in kind (please note that IPS members are not permitted to enter this class). It is hoped that this class will help children who are just starting out to have a chance to compete.

Donkey Section

Our donkey classes are always sure to draw a crowd. We have a class for the Best Donkey at the Show and a class for the Best Donkey Foal. The Champion Donkey of the Show will receive the Paul Kingston Memorial Perpetual Cup.

The day will end with a donkey derby!
