The Stud was founded in 1966 with Transy, Lockinge, Ebony, Ashorne and Newtown bloodlines. Our aim is to breed and produce ponies 40” to 42” with good temperaments and straight, long and powerful movement. Our bloodlines over the years have included stallions from the Claylands Stud and from the Shetland Island studs including H.R.E., Clibberswick, Waterloo and Sumburgh.
