Lets see your Native Ponies!

I am so proud of our British Native breeds, they are such fantastic ponies in themselves, and also cross to make amazing allrounders and sport horses. The native ponies of the British Isles are the Dartmoor, the Exmoor, the Shetland, the Highland, the New Forest, the Connemara, the Fell, the Dales, and the Welshes section A, B, C and D.

Here is my lovely little New Forest gelding, Rhubarb Baby, or Roo for short.

When I say mine, he was sold yesterday, but it still hasn't sunken in He is by the famous stallion Smiler of Sheepwash, and was one of his very last foals. Eight years old, 13.1hh and out of a Moorcorner mare. Roo is forest bred and lived wild in the New Forest until he was two. I helped my sister to school him to event, and he got her on all the PC teams! An awesome pony and such a cutie!








Roo as a foal, on the forest with his mum:


My first pony, who I shared with my sisters, was also a native! He was a mouse dun Highland Pony, and was so much fun! He was entire until he was five, so had a massive neck. He taught us a lot! Here is Jayjay:


Let's see yours!!

I have a shetland and a connemara cross, I will have to take a few photos of them to share.

BTW, what a cute little pony!! Such presence for a new forest! And how cute was he as a foal So sad that you had to sell him though :(

I just want to say your ponies are gorgeous. The picture isn't the best but its all I have. This is a little dartmoor gelding Logan I used to learn to ride on ( he isn't mine). He was gorgeous little thing. Very lazy when he wanted to be but took good care of his riders. I miss him heaps!

ohh cool horses

I live at the bottom of the world but I got given a newforest pony and he's awsome, athletic and calm enough for anyont to ride. We beat the hacks in dressage most times, great jumper to.

As a kid I had welsh crosses, and a connemara by ganty champ who was an amazing jumper so super talented!

All awsome ponies!!

My purebred (grade 1) connemara Stan who's posh name was Ballinasloe Hero.
He was born 1990, was 14hh, had show wins as long as your arm, able to do a high level of dressage and was a good fun pony. Regisered as a chocolate dun, geneticly he was a smokey buckskin.

By Ashfield Miller, out of Derrycoyle Lucky lady. He was the first foal from that pairing. His full brother TYNAGH MILLER is standing at stud in Ireland.







Next one is Harvey (harvest moon II) welsh section B. He was my first pony and is now 30 years old. 12.2hh. He has been with us for 20 years and taught me everything I know (perticularly my stickability). He has been out on loan quite a few times, taught lots of kidsa to ride and we have had offers of blank cheques for him but we have not parted with him.
Me as a tiny dot on him.



Me reminding him about his manners when he started taking liberties in the show ring with his little rider


Taking anouther little girl for her first experiance in the show ring (waiting outside and no my sister did not take her in the ring dressed like that, the leader in full LR mum outfit was in the ring with anouther pony), nothing like throwing her in the deep end at a county show


Danny Aka Derwen Ransom, 16hh 18 years old when I first rode him, out of Derwen Riviera and by Tireinon Step On . This is a horse that I got a chance ride on in 2008, simply because I was in the right place at the right time. The first time I sat on him I had 5 mins to learn how he thought (litteraly had one walk trot and canter) and then into the ring where we won the championship.
Did several more shows on him over the next few seasons, had several more championships, unfortunatly he is now retired.




First time I rode him (ignore the roundings that changed as soon as I was offered the ride permanatly)

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

This is me on Cinnamon.

I do not know breed but she is only 12 3.
That is my son getting to pet her the day before she leaves. My last ride on my best friend. She was 8 years old.

That is just it...I don't know her breed at all. I don't know my pony breeds.

Thanks. I wish that I could find a Connemara for my boys.
