Ronan Moloney was born and raised in County Offaly, Ireland, where he began his career by breaking and preparing horses for foxhunting, racing, and steeplechasing. He moved to the USA in 2002 and started working preparing Thoroughbreds for the track in Millbrook NY. A few years after that, Ronan and his wife Kristy moved to Sharon CT where they ran a farm that specialized in eventing. In 2008, Ronan and Kristy opened up their own business, Kinnitty Capall Stables, first in Millerton NY, and now at their permanent farm in Ancramdale NY. Ronan rides and trains event horses 9 months a year in NY and 3 months a year in South Carolina.
Ronan and Kristy run a breeding program with their two stallions, Kharacter C, an RPSI stallion with an impressive list of successful offspring, and Dartangion, a KWPN stallion who will be making his Intermediare 1 debut in dressage this season. Ronan takes great pride in starting all of his own youngsters and bringing them up in their careers. He also has a small string of older competition horses that he trains and competes yearlong.
Ronan is a cross country course designer who holds his ‘r’ license. He designs lower level events in Area 1, and was instrumental in revitalizing the Kent School Horse Trials in Kent CT. In 2019, he and 2 other people came together to take over the organization of the horse trials and to give the whole event a facelift. Ronan oversaw and designed the entire cross country course overhaul.
Ronan owns the 12 year old Irish Sport Horse gelding, HHS Dollar. Dollar was bred in Ireland by Marion Hughes and was imported to the USA in 2012. Dollar was competing successfully at both Intermediate and CCI* before undergoing colic surgery in 2018. He and Dollar are now back in training and are rising up the levels this year. Dollar’s first CIC** will be in August 2019.
This is what Ronan had to say about The Excel ProElite Oil Supplement: “I have found that it has worked great on Dollar. His weight gain and his attitude have changed tremendously. I have noticed that his legs don’t swell up after training anymore, and he feels much less tense in his body. The Excel ProElite has helped Dollar with his body condition and manages his muscle soreness. Ever since his colic surgery, Dollar has been tight and tense in places he never was before. Since using the ProElite, Dollar has gained more muscle in his topline and is able to hold his weight very well. Working back up to the upper levels has been a long, hard process, but with the ProElite, Dollar is 10 times better than he has ever been. As a naturally high energy and anxious horse, Dollar used to burn off all of his fat and become very tight in his body. Now that he is using the Excel supplement, Dollar is gaining weight as he should be and is developing proper muscling throughout his body. I’m very happy to have found this product. It’s a game changer.”
