Becky and Conan Conway own and run two boutique barns in pristine locations, Wellington and Lexington. With a hand-picked selection of imported horses for the the most discriminating buyer and a list of repeat clients, the group of talented sale horses in their stable don’t last long.
Knowing their market well, together Becky and Conan find top horses in Europe, traveling there 6-8 times per year. They strive to offer high quality sale horses as well as to produce ideal matches between horses and riders.
Blue Hill Farm’s ultimate goal is to develop a string of horses to compete on the international grand prix circuit.
Rebecca began riding when she was 11 years old in Salt Lake City, Utah. On her first pony, Blue Moon, Rebecca qualified to compete in the 1998 National Pony Hunter Championships. That was her first taste of national level competition. At age 15 she moved to Scottsdale to train with Betty Beran, achieving success in the hunter, jumper and equitation arenas, including competing in medal finals and earning medals at Young Riders.
After graduating from Arizona State University, Becky and her fabulous mare Corona started competing at the grand prix level. Becky was named PCHA Runner-up Rookie of the Year in 2005 and earned the alternate spot in the 2006 World Cup Finals. In 2008 the pair went on to represent the United States in Buenos Aires, where they helped clinch the gold by riding two clean rounds in the Nations Cup. Corona is now retired and had her first baby in 2012, appropriately named Lime.
Conan Conway grew up riding in County Sligo, Ireland. As a teenager he rode ponies in both national and international shows. At the age of fifteen Conan’s accomplishments on ponies led him to the Pony European Championships in Stockholm, Sweden, where he finished fourth. At seventeen Conan moved to Killarney, Ireland to work for horseman and dealer, Pat Duggan of Ardmachree Stables. Conan spent eight years with the Duggan’s, showing at national shows on a variety of horses ranging from young jumpers to the open divisions. He then set his sights on competition in the United States.
In 2006 Conan teamed up with International rider, Darragh Kerins, and the duo went on to experience success at all levels of competition including over 13 Grand Prix wins and a 12th place finish in the 2009 European Championships aboard Night Train.
