Bryndefaid Stud

Welsh Mountain Ponies

We are a small stud based in the north of Scotland aiming to breed a type of pony which is able to compete in all ridden disciplines but retains the scope, quality and size of the true Mountain Pony.


The Stud was formed in 1981 following a decision to breed from our first pony Madog Dolly. We had both learnt to ride on Dolly and decided we would like to breed mountain ponies once we had outgrown her. Unable to find a Stallion in the area we saw an advert for Waxwing Herald, a yearling colt who had won at the Great Yorkshire. One look at Herald and Kathleen's mind was made up. The Stud was born.
The Prefix was not registered until a couple of years later on the birth of our first foal, and it was not until many years later that we realised that this literal translation of the farm name also meant "Hill Sheep" - but by then it was too late to change it !

Waxwing Herald

Herald was the oldest of the 4 full brothers by Cantref Glory out of Revel Hetty, the others being Waxwing Herod (Imperial stud - Australia), who qualified for HOYS as a yearling before being exported, Waxwing Hurricane (retained at Waxwing), who won the Royal Welsh as a yearling and Waxwing Hill-Billy who was exported to Holland. The Stud owes everything to Herald with all of our female lines tracing back through his daughters. He was not a prolific breeder and only left five fillies in his life time, four of which are retained all out of different Foundation mares, and they now form the basis of the stud.
