“We purchased Duke (Brave and Blazing Boy) from Gloria in September 2017 and have been delighted with our experience of buying such an outstanding horse from a very genuine and caring producer. Duke was everything Gloria described and more. He is kind, talented, well mannered and confident. He has been beautifully produced and is a joy to own.
He came from Gloria in excellent health and condition and was really well turned out. She helped us through the process sending many photos and videos, and advised with vetting and transport. We have maintained contact and Gloria takes a great interest in Dukes ongoing progress. We would highly recommend anyone looking for a genuine and well produced horse.Katie WoodallUK
“We bought “Lacken King” from Gloria. It was a really hard decision to make, buying a pony unseen from a foreign country, but Gloria made it so easy for us! King was exactly as described and he ended up being Emma’s best friend and competition companion! They went all the way and qualified for Swedish Championships. They came 4th the first year and 2nd next year. They then moved on and started in the Nordic Championships in Emma’s last year riding ponies.
King is now bringing on another little girl and they have already made their qualification to the Swedish Championships 2018! What a fantastic pony! We highly recommend Gloria Nolan and her ponies, a more honest and accommodating seller is really hard to find! ”Monika LindenSweden
“I came across Gloria’s website when looking for a Connemara to event and show, I saw she had Shadow (Gortogher Shadow) advertised. I contacted Gloria about her. From the offset Gloria was easy to deal with. We traveled from Scotland to view her, Gloria was very accommodating and had excellent trial facilities.
Shadow has been produced perfectly by Gloria and has been a great allrounder over the past two years we have had her. We have competed in a variety of show jumping, eventing, hunter trials and showing. I would recommend that anyone looking for a performance Connemara pony should contact Gloria as she produces wonderful ponies.Rebecca McNabScotland
“UK Having never traveled to Ireland before to buy a horse it was a nerve
wracking experience. My 15 year old daughter and I took the plunge and
hopped on a plane. We found a genuine, honest family with a true love of
Connemara ponies and bought the most fantastic horse from them.
The travel was easy and the arrangements for transporting the horse home to us wereRachel Brett UK
straightforward. The horses are beautifully cared for, individually known
and schooled well. When we need another horse I will most definitely go to
