Derryinver Luxury Cruise (“Luxy”) is a 16.2hh registered Irish Sport Horse stallion by Lux Z, out of Icing by Cruising. Currently standing stud in Ontario, with reliable shipping throughout Canada and USA.

Luxy has had a successful international career in show jumping up to Grand Prix 1.55m, with wins and numerous top 5 placings. He represented and placed for the Irish Studbook at the World Breeders Federation for Sport Horses as a 6-year-old, and his career included over 60 international level competitions in Europe. He retired from his career completely sound and was imported to North America in 2020. As a result of the top quality of his first North American foal crops, many breeders are repeating their crosses with Luxy to produce their next top competition sporthorse or breeding prospect!

Luxy is ridden by his owner, Emma Elley, who said Luxy is a dream to own and ride, he is an absolute gentleman. He lives at the family farm and continues to enjoy jumping, dressage and hacking.  We are now working on fine tuning his dressage skills.  We are planning his dressage ring debut in 2023!

Offspring in Ireland

Emma Elley, Luxy’s owner, provided us with the following information about Luxy’s older progeny in Ireland. His older offspring are jumping the 1.20m now, and bringing home top placements! We expect to hear more news of their accomplishments as they continue to develop up the standards!

Cruising Over the River (2016)

Cruising Over the River is from the foal crop in 2016 in Ireland, out of an Indoctro mare (Moortown Indy). She has a sweet temperament and is very athletic. She was introduced to jumping courses as a four-year-old. In Summer 2021, as a five-year-old, she competed in her first registered show, placing 6th out of 41 competitors.

From her owner:

“She will be 7 this year. Broke at 4, but we lost 2 years with COVID. She is jumping 1.10 at shows now. She has a lot of scope.”

Cornascriebe Derryinver (2016)

Cornascriebe Derryinver is from the first crop of foals in 2016 by Derryinver Luxury Cruise out of a Cavalier Royale mare. At four-years-old, he was jumping 1m courses at home and competing in 0.80m classes. In Summer 2021, as a five-year-old gelding, he reached the finals of the youngster tour in Mullingar. He is now competing at 1.10m with his rider Jessica McConnell.

Dullerton High Tide (2016)

Dullterton High Tide is a 7-year old bay gelding owned and bred by Stephen Lowry and currently competing at 1.20m with his rider Simon Scott.

North American Offspring

Touch of Lux

2021 IDSH Bay Filly
Barn Name: Morrigan
Dam: Touch of Dutch RIDSH (Touch of the Blues RID/Malstriker KWPN)
Breeder:/Owner Amy Clemmons, DVM

Amy’s remarks on Morrigan’s after her First Place performance in the two-year-old Jump Chute at the Snowdownia Young Horse Show in April 2023:

“Morrigan was Luxy’s first foal in the U.S. so I try to get updates to Emma every time we have an outing. She was originally for sale, but that changed quickly lol! The judge really loved her attitude and thought she was “a lovely eventing/sporthorse type.”

From the editor: I met this filly personally at the Snowdonia YHS show in Texas. She is impressive in stature, with a temperament best described as willing and confident. Morrigan stood quietly awaiting her turn through the jump chute, eagerly making new friends with the audience. As a two-year-old, she is very well-developed and correct in her legs and topline. It is easy to see that she has the promise to make an excellent riding horse and competitor in her near future! Congrats to Amy on this breeding and top show results!

Siren Song

2022 IDSH Grey Filly
Barn Name: Ren
Dam: Shanroe Siren (Cavalier Royale / First Consul)
Breeder/Owner: Emma Elley

From her owner/breeder:

“She’s the perfect package, conformation, movement and outstanding personality. She is such an easy filly to work with and loves to learn. She is nearly one-year old now and acts like a 4-year old who takes everything in her stride. She could be started tomorrow (although she won’t be, lol!).  Her dam, Shanroe Siren, is an IDSH by Cavalier Royale so Ren has international jumping sires on both sides of her pedigree and is destined for great things in the future!”

This filly has been retained as a future competition mount and breeding prospect.

Connemora’s Jaunty Lass

2021 IDSH Chestnut Filly
Barn Name: Eila
Dam: Connemora’s Four-Leaf Clover (Jaunty Star x Clover Hill)
Breeder: Leslie Anne Connell
Owner: Melanie Michaels Ryan

From her owner:

“We fell in love with Eila when we went for a visit with friend and her breeder Leslie Connell. When Leslie rested her champagne glass on her back I was sold. Eila also canoodled up to John my husband. Eila is one of my favorite young horses. She’s blossoming into a beautiful young mare: calm, curious and beautifully mature-looking for two years old. Our plans for Eila include participating in cup qualifiers for the RAWF. We are going to campaign her as a jumper eventually as that’s where her talents will surely lie. Maybe eventually breed her and or sell her. We shall see, her options are endless.”

Derry’s Sea Breeze

2021 IDSH Bay Filly
Barn Name: Breeze
Dam: Critical Alert xx (E Dubai / Lost Code)
Breeder/Owner: Emma Elley

From her owner/breeder:

“Breeze is now two years old and another super easy filly. Luxy’s easy Irish temperament shines through in all his offspring and Breeze is no exception. She is a total love bug, keen to learn and try new things. Never says no!  We foresee Breeze will be an outstanding Jumping or Eventing prospect. She will be 16hh+ and would be suited to both an amateur or professional home.”
