About Section A
  • The Welsh Mountain Pony is native to the hills of Wales with a history that goes back thousands of years.
  • Their affinity for children makes them fine 'first ridden' mounts. They excel in any equine discipline and progress with their little owners to the small hunter jumper division.
  • Welsh Mountain Ponies are at home in harness and may be seen in all facets of driving from pleasure to CDE's, with their dressage, cones and marathon events.
  • Height limit is 12 hands (48 inches) in the UK and 12.2 hh in the US and Canada.
  • They provide the gene pool for all four sections of the Welsh breed.

We are specially proud of our senior mares who have produced the young broodmare band. These mares now live in retirement, producing the occasional foal and enjoying an extremely lazy and affluent life.
