Brierdene Stud

Quality Welsh Mountain Ponies


Although the stud began with ponies from the Revel, Hendre, Gorsty, Talachddu and Foxhunter studs, the ponies today are mainly the result of two dark bay mares, Glenhyng Rachel, bought in 1973 followed a little later by her sister Criccieth Rosie.

The stallion Fuchsia Quince joined the stud in 1983 and became a major influence, siring many winners during his life with us, eventually topping the W.P.C.S. sire ratings in 1991.
