Our herd sire is straight Downland breeding by Downland Toreador out of Downland Moonlight. His illustrious grandfather, Downland Chevalier, appears several times in his pedigree.

Matador is a major attraction on our farm. He exudes confidence and pizzazz. His movement, just playing in his paddock, is breath taking.

He produces big solid foals with his gentle, curious nature and wonderful conformation. See his son, West Abbey Ransom. We are retaining Matador's daughter WA Sage as a future driving pony and brood mare.

Matador passes on his correct conformation with his lovely Welsh head and soft dark eye.

Matador's offspring show great potential to be outstanding hunter/jumper ponies. Some might well qualify for the US Sport Pony Registry.
