We have dedicated much of our career to cultivating and refining our breeding program at John Irish Performance Horses. We have limited our broodmare band to a select group of mares and work hard to have an exceptional group of prospects hit the ground every year. We are proud of our girls, their careers, and their offspring! Every broodmare we have has either had a successful career in the show pen or produces talented foals. 



(Reed N Reminic x Tangys Classy Lady)

Juliet is an exceptional mare that won just over $37,000 in NRHA earnings with a limited show career. She’s an extremely talented mare that we are excited to have as an integral part of our breeding program. She’s 6 panel negative and a complete outcross. Her first foal hits the show pen in 2022!

(Topsail Whiz x Dancer Nic)

Abby is a dynamic Topsail Whiz mare that has over $32,000 in NRHA LTE. Her 2019 colt by Colonels Shining Gun topped the NRHA Futurity Sales as a yearling in 2020. We are excited to have her first foals in our program start showing in 2023! She’s 6 panel negative.


Though we don’t normally keep mares in our breeding program that don’t have a show record, we made an exception for Peaches. Peaches was raised here on the ranch and had her show career cut short by an injury. We loved her mind, ability, and conformation so much that we added her to our breeding program. Her dam, Ooh Fudge, was a very talented daughter of Topsail Whiz that was an NRHA Open Derby Finalist with John and had NRHA LTE of $7,000 with very limited showing.

Tularosa Melody

(Mr Melody Jac x Be Aechs Brenna)

Tully has NRHA produce earnings of $50,000 and has produced 2 NRHA Open Futurity Finalists. Tully’s dam is Be Aechs Brenna and has produced $168,000 in NRHA money earners including the 1989 NRHA Open Futurity Champion Brennas Kid. We were blessed to have Tully be a part of our breeding program towards the end of her career. She gave us 2 wonderful full brothers:
