Claire Connaghan is from Donegal, in the North West of Ireland. She grew up having horses from a very young age and rides mostly English but loves the Western style, too. Her career with horses began with studies in equine science, which led her to work in the racing industry for 10 years. She then trained as a riding instructor and has worked in Australia on a stud farm and on a cattle station. On returning from Australia, she opened a trekking center, where she offered pony trekking and started and trained young horses.

She has always had a soft spot for Thoroughbreds, and when she’s not training horses at home she works in the sales industry in Ireland and the UK. Claire began to specialize in Monty’s methods in 2014 and completed her instructor certificate in 2016. She travels between the USA teaching and working alongside Monty with horses and offers courses from her yard, “Charlie’s” in Donegal; and also offers home visits to your yard to work with you and your horse. Claire is also a Certified Equine Sports Massage Therapist.
