EMMARR STUD

 Is a small stud aiming to breed  true type Welsh Mountain Ponies.

We are a small stud situated in the beautiful Talley Valley being just 50 mins drive from the famous RWAS show ground.  I have had a passion for horses all my life and started life  in a riding school where l learnt the basics of riding.  I used to have hourly free horse rides in return for cleaning tack and mucking out stables.  I went on to be a head lad in a local riding school and then later went into racing working for Major Peter Cazalet who was the Queen Mother’s horse trainer..  It was during my time here that l learnt how to do things properly from having clean stables and tidy yard  to general management of the horse.  However we are always open to learning more and l have to say l have never stopped learning,  the knowledge some long term Welsh breeders share is incredible, and l am grateful for all the help everyone has given us.   Special thanks also go to all concerned with the High Horse Showing Society  who have been  great educators, friendly and most of all will always share their knowledge.

At the age of 16yrs l bought my first Point -To- Pointer after saving my wages for a whole year..! .  Point to Pointing was my life throughout my  teenage ,20’s 30’s years.  It wasn’t until year 2000  l decided to call it a day after  30+ glorious years.  It was at this time in 2000 we moved to beautiful Wales from the South Coast of England. We bought our first Welsh Mountain Pony from Llanybydder  sales as a companion pony.  It was from this point that both Michael and l  recognised and fell in love with these beautiful mischievious, hardy breed.  On buying our first few Welshies it was certainly trial and error, having bought a Doylan, Togram, Penboeth and a Friars but we soon acknowledged that we were drawn more to the hill pony type .  A five year period elapsed, we learnt as much as we could, we went and watched at several shows, watching out for stock we liked for future reference.  We also needed to have some idea of what we were meant to be doing before we decided to start a Welsh Pony Stud.  We wanted to invest in what we considered to be good , well bred quality stock. It was so noticable the stock we liked and the stud progressed from there.  Since then it has always been our aim to breed ponies of true Welsh Mountain type, with good conformation, temperament, movement and with that certain Welsh attitude.  I think now we are totally addicted to this wonderful breed and can never see life without a Welsh Mountain Pony.

A poem written by a visitor friend to the stud on 16/4/16

A Place of Dreams

By Teresa Gee who
(Sadly passed away 1/1/17)

Wading through a sea of gold

Striding  out onto green

One of the most wondrous sights

Ever to be seen.

From barn to field come rain or shine

The little gems shine bright

Their massive personalities

Defy their modest height.

A tiny head will look your way

A little ear is pricked

Big bright eyes watching, waiting

And fingers will be licked.

A welcome from both man and beast

Don’t be misunderstood

You’ll not get better anywhere

Than the great Emmarr Stud.
