Willie Leahy has had an involvement with Irish horses and Connemara ponies for all of his life. He is leading the popular riding holidays the Connemara and Coast Trails since 1969 and was Field Master of the Galway Blazers Hunt for 30 years. He is also the largest breeder of Connemara ponies in the world. It is Willie’s vision and determination that led to the foundation of Dartfield and its current development to encompass the forgotten history of rural Irish life.
