Wedderlie Mardi Gras
Wedderlie Mardi Gras - Welsh Show PonyMardi is a truly breathtaking pony and we are so thrilled to own him. He is maturing so well, and is every bit as spectacular as we had hoped for. He has a lovely, balanced body with a short back, great shoulder, and a terrific hip. His gorgeous, well shaped neck goes on forever, and he has an absolutely exquisite head with tiny ears and width between his large eyes. He exudes presence and Welsh type. His movement is very free and from the shoulder, with little knee action and he uses his powerful hindquarters to their best advantage. He floats out there when he moves -- just a joy to behold. His wonderful disposition is very important to us, as we value that very highly in our breeding stock. And his beautiful golden color is just icing on an already spectacular cake!!!

Section B Welsh Ponies
Welsh Ponies have long been considered to be the most beautiful of the pony breeds, and we heartily agree! Section B Welsh Ponies are the riding ponies of the four Welsh Sections. They combine athleticism and beauty with outstanding movement and kind dispositions. Section B Welsh Ponies are big enough to be ridden or driven by every member of the family, and have a wonderfully trainable nature. They generally range in height from 12.2 hands to 14.2 hands, though our goal is to produce Welsh Ponies that mature 13 to 13.2 hands. We feel that at this size they retain the incredible beauty of the Welsh breed, while being athletic enough to compete in nearly any discipline.

Section B Welsh Ponies

We breed "classic" Welsh Ponies -- that is ponies that look Welsh, and not like miniature Thoroughbreds. If you are looking for a miniature Thoroughbred -- you have come to the wrong place! However if you are looking for a substantial, beautiful, typey, stylish, classic Welsh Pony, with a kind and intelligent disposition -- you have arrived!

Our ponies carry the finest of the old US breeding, and select lines of Champion imported stock. We currently stand the beautiful imported Section B Welsh stallion at stud: Royal Welsh Champion and US National Champion, *Wedderlie Mardi Gras, at limited public stud. We are also very pleased to offer the imported Champions, *Cottrell Andromeda and *Holyoake Copper-Field at public stud for the first time in 2006.

Welsh Section B

We believe that disposition is of paramount importance when it comes to breeding. Without a kind disposition, an animal is useless. Disposition is our first priority in choosing our breeding stock and we take great care to keep only ponies with excellent trainability as well. Conformation and movement are most certainly not overlooked, as we require that our breeding animals have superior conformation and movement that will leave you breathless. Being a native breed, they must also posses an abundance of bone and substance. We have chosen animals of true Welsh type, that will leave you with no question as to their breed. Pedigree is always an important criteria when choosing stock, and we are proud to own ponies that have generations of champions in both halter and performance behind them. In addition, we require that our ponies have size, in order to be useful for the widest variety of riders. Our goal is to produce ponies that are 13 to 13.2 hands, which are suitable for both children and adults. We believe that the Breed Standard is the ultimate goal, and we strive to meet it in every way possible. We welcome you to peruse the pages of our site, and share our goal for the future!

Welsh Cross Horses
One of the most wonderful things about Welsh Ponies is how well they cross with other breeds. They are so versatile! We have had Welsh/Arabian, Morgan, Quarter Horse, Shetland...and even a draft horse cross...proving that they truly DO cross well with every breed!

What can you do with them? Well, what they can do is only limited by your imagination. They excel at performance events such as pony hunters, English and western pleasure, carriage and pleasure driving, dressage, trail riding...and being your best friend! They can do it all...and with style!

Southcoast Welsh Cobs

Our first show together was straight in at the deep end with the Royal Welsh in 1995,Gayle was 5th in a strong class, so we were delighted. In 1998 Gayle produced our first Southcoast foal, Dirty Harry by Trevallion Harry. Harry was shown twice as a foal coming 1st at Northleach and 6th at the Royal Welsh. He was gelded at two and nearly died with an infection, we`re sure his fiery spirit pulled him through. He remained in the field until we took him to our Southern Counties Summer Medal Show 2004 where he became Supreme Champion Gelding , what a great surprise for us. We also have Southcoast Harriet, a full sister to Harry. Hatty is unshown and had her first filly foal in 2005, Southcoast M`lady by Southcoast Mr Tom.
Welsh Section C
Southcoast Mr Tom, by Bynaur Tywysog out of Cascob Angharad, has been our most successful Welsh Section D stallion winning many championships all over the country. Tom was Supreme Champion as a yearling. As a 3yr old he gained 6th prize at the Royal Welsh in 2004, Reserve youngstock Champion at Blaenavon and was Reserve Section D Champion and Supreme Youngstock Champion at our SCWPCA Spring Show 2004. We are `over the moon` that two homebred horses have done so well at our association shows having only started breeding six years ago. Toms full brother S. Sir Gwilym was sold to Lancaster and we look forward to seeing him under saddle in a couple of years. Toms full sister, S. Roxanne who has been reserve champion section D as a yearling who is now sold and under saddle. Other cobs we have sold are doing well in hand and as performance horses.

The short story ends where we started, Trevallion Gayle is now twenty three and fully retired after having her last foal in 2004, a black colt by Coedeneirin Reflect, S Blackjack. We sold Blackjack to Sweden and he is a silver Medal winner.

While in Wales they bred Welsh Cobs, and thoroughbred/cobs. Jackie a dressage judge and instructor decided that while moving to Canada she would bring part of Wales with them... their Welsh Cobs, Kilgour Pendragon a stallion and also selected for the journey Pendragon Goch his 2yr old filly.
Welsh Cobs
"We found super homes for our other Cobs, and we wish them all success in the future. We are looking now to reestablishing ourselves in Canada, our aim is to produce quality Welsh Cobs and Part bred performance horses that can perform, in all spheres and with Kilgour Pendragon as our stallion we are very confident for the future.....Performance is our Keyword."

Kilgour Pendragon
Dragon has some of the very best Welsh bloodlines. His stunning good looks are matched only by his kind temperament and versatility. Dragon was bred by John & Tina Williamson of the Kilgour stud, Swansea,Wales, who owned Kilgour Welsh monarch. Sire of Horeb Euros and Kilgour Gwynhwyfa Dragons dam.

In 2000 Jackie accompanied Dragon (Kilgour Pendragon) to Canada. Since his arrival Dragon has won numerous championships.

Ffansi Welsh Ponies

The original home of the Welsh Mountain Pony was in the hills and valleys of Wales. Life was not an easy one.., winters were severe and vegetation was sparse. Shelter, most often was an isolated valley or bare trees. Yet the Welsh pony managed not only to survive, but to flourish. Led by proud stallions, bands of mares and their foals roamed, climbing mountains, leaping ravines, and running over rough terrain. Hence, the development of a pony with a remarkable soundness of body, tremendous endurance and a high degree of native intelligence. Our breeding program consists of carefully selected ponies based on conformation, substance, balance, character, and pedigree ! During our search for outstanding ponies to fit the profile of everything we were looking for, including, superb pedigrees we luckily found Kathleen Rawls of Mt Dragon Welsh Ponies. Many, many thanks to Kathleen for helping us get started with many of these wonderful ponies.

Dyffryngwy Stud - Powys Wales


The first welsh cobs with the Dyffryngwy prefix were out of Llamri Jet Lady by Parc Sir Ivor. In 1987 a colt by Geler Sambo was registered as Dyffryngwy Star Lad and a further three colts were registered in subsequent years - 3 full brothers by Cascob Dafydd Ddu - namely Dyffryngwy Brenin, Dafydd & Lucky Lad 1989, 1991 & 1992.
Dyffryngwy Stud - Powys Wales
A further 3 colts by Jet Lady were registered but it was only with the purchase of two additional foundation mares that the female line got under way.

Abercippyn Black Bess f. 1992 is by Aberconwy Tywysog Du and out of a mare called Patyfid Flying Lady who was by Trevallion Prince Comet. She has now been retired from breeding but leaves an impressive "B" line of females at the stud, with three daughters, Boneddiges, B & Briallen as well as 5 granddaughters, namely Cariad B, Myfanwy, Hannah, Queen B & Her Majesty.

Pennal Sian f.1993 was by Parc Matador and out of a mare called Gwarcoed Molly who was by a Pentre Eiddwen Comet stallion and out of a Meiarth Royal Eiddwen mare called Ionos Polly. She has only recently been lost, but leaves three females to continue her "S" line at Dyffryngwy namely Sparkle f.1999 by Egoes Rhamant, Sali Mali f. 2008 by Trevallion Picasso & Siwan f.2011 by Geler Dago.

Almost all the stock at Dyffryngwy are shown at some point in their lives, and most are also broken to ride whilst still fillies.

Today, as well as Gwyneth breeding cobs, her brother Gareth also breeds cobs under the Glanhafren prefix and her neice, Gareth`s daughter Geralene, also breeds Section As under the Ger-y-llyn prefix. These family members together with support from the Oliver family, particularly David, as well as Gareth Ruggeri, who shows for Gwyneth along with David Oliver, means that a modest sized stud has achieved some very commendable results in a relatively short length of time, with cobs competing to the very highest level in the UK as well as oversees both in hand and under saddle.

Trefaes Stud Welsh Cobs and Mountain Ponies


The Trefaes prefix was registered with the WPCS in 1959 by Carys` grandfather, the late S O James, although the first welsh cob mares at the stud (both foaled in 1949) were Trefaes Polly (Deinol Welsh Comet x Polly of Hercws) and Trefaes Nans (Deinol Welsh Comet x Hercws Victory Pride).

Trefaes Welsh Cobs and Mountain Ponies, Telephone : 07971 233179, trefaesstud@yahoo.co.uk / https://www.trefaesstud.co.uk/ Trefaes Stud Welsh Cobs and Mountain Ponies WELSH COBS AT TREFAES

Deinol Welsh Comet foaled in 1946 was by Hercws Welsh Comet and out of a mare called Deinol Bloss who was sired by the George Prince of Wales winner in 1933 & 1939: Myrtle Welsh Flyer. The reason that this welsh cob stallion does not appear in more pedigrees is that he was exported as a six year old to the Government of Pakistan, to produce useful part breds.

The Dam of Trefaes Polly, Polly of Hercws was one of the top show mares of the post-war era just as her own dam, Teify of Hercws had been pre war -winning the George Prince of Wales Cup in 1936 & 1937. The pedigree contains an abundance of Ceitho Welsh Comet and can be traced back to the 1850`s, long before the Welsh Pony and Cob Society was founded in 1901.

The Dam of Trefaes Nans, Hercws Victory Pride (Hercws Welsh Comet x Goyan Black Bess), also features the pedigree of Ceitho Welsh Comet in both the dam and sire`s pedigree and as the majority of the current welsh cobs at the stud are descended from Trefaes Nans, (via her daughter Trefaes Brackenleaf by Rhandir Cadno), one can safely say that the welsh cobs at the stud are directly descended from the very earliest welsh cobs.

Trefaes Brackenleaf was an exceptional dam for the stud and produced a number of important offspring including:

Trefaes Stud Welsh Cobs

Trefaes Bessie (f.1984 by Furthermoors Solomon) (pictured left) 2nd at the RW as a yearling and 2 year old (to Corscaron Moonlight in 1985 and Nebo Princess Ann in 1986) Youngstock Champion at Lampeter (beating her two rivals from the Royal Welsh). Dam of Trefaes Brenin Du (by Cyttir Telynor) and Trefaes Bonheddwr (by Cathedine Flying Express) - both Champions and both exported.

Trefaes Black Pearl (f.1986 by Trefaes Toreth) dam of Trefaes Golden Pearl (f.1992 by Horeb Euros) who won the Royal Welsh Junior Mare class in 1999 and was 3rd in the senior class in 2000 as well as numerous Supreme in Shows. Trefaes Golden Pearl (pictured right) herself being just as significant female line for the welsh cob, having produced amongst others: Drogeda Pearly King, Drogeda Stormy Tempest, Drogeda Princess Rachel & Drogeda The Outlaw. Trefaes Black Pearl`s other offspring include: Trefaes Black Marvel f.2004 and Trefaes Black Flyer f.2005 (both by Gwynfaes Culhwch) pictured below at the 2011 Royal Welsh. Trefaes Stud Welsh Cob Trefaes Black Flyer was sold as a foal at the Brightwells Autumn Cob Sales for 4,400 and has proved himself a worthy investment for the Rhydeilian Stud, winning numerous medals when shown in the youngstock classes as well as a silver medal when shown in his first year out as a stallion. He is also the sire of, amongst others, Rhydeilian Orchid who sold for 7,500 at the 2009 Autumn Sales.

Trefaes Black Velvet (f.1988 by Furthermoors Solomon) sold for 2,600 gns as a 2 year old but bought back by the stud in 1996 and producing amongst others, Trefaes True Velvet (f.1999 by Fronarth Victor)

Trefaes Boneddiges (f.1990 by Dimbeth Sion) - still at the stud

Trefaes Bracky`s Girl (f.2002 by Trefaes Brenin Victor) - also still at the stud

WELSH MOUNTAIN PONIES AT TREFAES STUD
The tradition of breeding Section As goes back almost as far as the Section Ds, with the first two mares that were acquired both being out of Bryniau Grey Lady: Bryniau Playmate (f.1952 by Owain Glyndwr) & Bryniau Greylight (f.1953 by Criban Bantam)WELSH MOUNTAIN PONIES AT TREFAES STUD
One of Bryniau Greylight`s daughters was Trefaes Grey Lady (pictured above) (f.1968 by Belvoir Sundowner) who was the winner of many championships herself and also produced the following progeny:

Trefaes Gay Go Lady (f. 1988 by Eppynt Orange Pip) successfully shown as a novice brood mare and dam of Trefaes Glamour Girl (f.2001 by Trefaes Cinnamon) & Trefaes Gay Go Beauty (f.2002 also by Trefaes Cinnamon) who still reside at the stud.

Trefaes Guardsman (f.1992 by Skellorn Daylight and now owned by the Teifi Stud) who was Male Champion at the Royal Welsh in 1999 (in hand) and won the harness class at the same show in 2000, and won the Traditional Ridden Class at the 2011 International Show .

Trefaes Grey Mist (f.1993 by Trefaes Carwyn) who won the Gwyn Price Royal Welsh progeny trophy at the 1994 Show.
