JEF Sir Lancelot


  Champion Connemara stallion



Horses have been raised and shown here since 1989 but we didn't learn about the wonderfully unique Connemara breed until 2004. 


On 120 acres just 15 miles north of Manhattan,  Irish Gate Farm is located in the historic, rolling prairie known as the Flint Hills of northeast Kansas. 


Our horse world started with our two daughters and their 4-H horses.  It grew from there to include two ABRA World Championship Barrel Racing titles and showing in Western Pleasure at the American Paint Horse Association World Show.  Now, thanks to Lance we're enjoying the exciting worlds of Eventing,  Dressage and Hunter/Jumpers!


​One of the best aspects of  Lance  being in Kansas is the many opportunities we have to introduce new people to this wonderful breed.  He's a gifted ambassador for Connemaras!
