All our homebred and reared colts and stallions are reared as naturally as possible in batchelor groups on grass ensuring not only are they socialised with others and learn heirachy but have ample time to play and develop good strong joints.

 This herd system of rearing ensures manners but also longevity with no over loaded joints and extensive lengths of time stood in stables. They are left to grow at their own rates and are never pushed ensuring hardiness and long term soundness while enjoying vital times being youngsters and playing, socialising and developing into the beautiful ponies you see a selection of below both bred here and also bought in.

Most of our stallions still have a 'best mate' and turn out with them when they are ever at home.



 Churtoncroft Aries


Chestnut stallion foaled in 1989 , 3 whites and blaze.

Picture taken on his 21st Birthday!

This great stallion needs little introduction as he has won almost every Section A class in the UK at some point as a youngster including Royal Welsh, Glanusk, Lampeter, The Welsh International, all the major County shows , 4 WPCS Medals and lots more!  He is renowned for his fabulous big clean front, beautiful head , superb tail set, quality flat bone and breath taking extravagant action. All of which is so sadly lacking in so many stallions these days but which thankfully Aries has in abundance and is passing on to his stock aswell!

He combines the very best breeding within the stud book and it shows! Not only has Aries had a superb show career winning 4 WPCS medals he is also proving to be a fabulous and very prepotent stock getter, his foals are instantly recognisable and their stock in turn have the same quality and out look.

Churtoncroft Pryd


Palomino foaled in 2000 by Churtoncroft Aries again and out of the 100% Coed Coch bred mare Churtoncroft Pryddest. With superb action, bone ,colour, substance and the now increasingly rare 'P line' blood he is an excting prospect for future stud duties. Having already sired a rather lovely Dun fill for the Churtoncroft Stud he is now a permanent resident here by kind permission of P&C.Pinnington.

Churtoncroft Rhodri



Grey colt (born chestnut) foaled in 2000 by the great stallion Churtoncroft Aries and out of the beautiful mare Coed Coch Ruby who was a well known show mare in her time. We are hoping Rhodri will follow in their winning footsteps and are sure he will!

He has a breathtaking action and certainly one for the future!

Rhodri made his Royal Welsh Debut in 2011 and stood 10th in a large Senior Stallion Class!

Great Thanks to Joost Van Wijk of the Stalmeladelle Stud, Holland for handling him so well for us!





 Fosterhouses Super Sam


Grey colt (born Chestnut) blaze and 4 whites Foaled in 1998 .Bought as a weaned foal. The last foal of the superb stallion Coed Coch Superstar he is very precious and everything we feel a Welsh Mountain pony should be! He combines bone, substance and fantastic action. We feel he is going to be a superb outcross stallion for our mares as his dam contains the equally famous Bowdler bloodlines.

This fabulous stallion has been lightly used due to no fault of his own but he is consistently leaving fabulous stock.

His only offspring offered for sale have been exported to, Spain, USA and Denmark.

He may be available to approved experienced mares this year in his first season.

Chestnut colt foaled in 2000 by Churtoncroft Aries again and out of the 100% Coed Coch bred mare Churtoncroft Hufen.
