Congratulations to the Waxwing Stud for achieving first place in the yearling filly class
with Perlen's daughter
|As I am continuing westwards with my Long Horse Ride across North America, most of my best mares remain on loan. Pili-pala has returned home, but Polaris Columbine has gone on loan to Caroline and Jessica Cox of the Capella Stud, Bedfordshire. She is now in foal for 2015 to their stallion Eyarth Braveheart, who was placed 3rd at the 2014 Royal Welsh. She has already won a couple of championships and achieved a WPCS medal. The photo on the left shows her in full flight with Jessica at the 2014 Royal Welsh.
Thank you to Tom Best and David Blair of the Waxwing stud for producing and showing
so superbly to win
the OVERALL SECTION B CHAMPIONSHIP
at the ROYAL WELSH SHOW 2013
As you can imagine I am totally thrilled, especially for the first time as an owner-breeder
Judge Meirion Davies presenting the Coed Coch cup for the Champion Welsh Pony to Perlen and handler Tom Best.Perlen also won the Queen's Cup which is presented to a different livestock section every year.
Youngstock out of Perlen's full sisters Glain and Colomen (who have also been on loan), also aquitted themselves well. Coriolan de L'Aurore third in the yearling colt class, and Waxwing Glimmer fourth in the three year old colts.
June 2013 Cwrtycadno Cyfrinach will be off to the USA next year to join the brood mares at the Lorelei stud, Georgia.
February 2013. Cwrtycadno Tegeirian-y-waun has gone to her new home at Elevage de Galicias, France
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda for 2013!

January 15th 2013. Robert Jones of the Butleigh Stud has contacted me to let me know that due to unforseen circumstances the three year old colt Cwrtycadno Rhion (born 2010) is available for lease to an approved home - a rare opportunity to use a stunning colt of impeccable breeding.
He is by our stallion Cwrtycadno Cymro, and out of Cwrtycadno Rhosyn-y-mynydd (by Royal Welsh Champion Carwed Charmer out of Royal Welsh Female Champion Talhaearn Eirlys y Pasg).
Thus all four grandparents are Royal Welsh Champions!
JULY 27th 2012 I am back at last from my Long Horse Ride from Beijing to London
I am thrilled that my brood mare Cwrtycadno Perlen was Reserve Champion Female Section B at the Royal Welsh show.
A big thank you to David Blair and Tom Best who have had her on loan while I have been away
and who did such a good job of producing her.
Perlen and Tom strut their stuff at the Royal Welsh
Congratulations also go to Tom and David for the lovely offspring they have bred from Cwrtycadno Glain (also on loan to Waxwing)

October 21st 2010. Home safe and sound from 2010 leg of The Long Horse Ride (see below for web links) I am happy to report that I am now halfway across Kazakhstan and halfway from Beijing to London!
On the next leg starting in April this year, I will be riding 1000 miles across Kazakhstan to reach Europe.
I am raising money for the charity www.schoolchildrenforchildren.org .
Please support me by donating to my Justgiving account at www.justgiving.com/meganlonghorseride.
£10 will sponsor me at 1p a mile, but any donations however small (or large!) are most welcome.
It is worth mentioning that ALL money goes directly to the projects supported,
as administation costs are covered via separate sponsorship.

June 23rd 2010. I have just arrived back from crossing China by horse - see bottom of page.
While I have been away, two healthy foals have arrived, a filly and a colt by Cymro out of Columbine and Rhosyn-y-mynydd respectively. I hope to get photos up on the website as soon as possible.
The colt is stallion potential and will be for sale at weaning.
Cwrtycadno Cymro has departed for stud duties at the Stougeshoeve stud in Holland
and it will be exciting to see the stock he sires during his time abroad.
Cwrtycadno Gwydden (Cwrtycadno Cymro x Polaris Columbine) has arrived at her new home in France with the Pierrard family
and full sister Cwrtycadno Iarlles has settled in at the Mynyddgraig stud, a little closer to home.
We wish their new owners every success with them in the years to come.
Congratulations to Sarah Ollis and large Welsh part-bred Cwrtycadno Zeus on winning the Endurance Trophy
Welsh Pony and Cob Society large Part-bred Awards for the second year running.

5th November 2009 - back from my travels abroad, where I have become the first person on record to ride on horseback
from one end of the Great Wall of China to the other! See bottom of page for link to my ride website.
Although it was a wonderful experience, it was great to be back with my own friendly ponies.
Here I am below with Polaris Columbine.

Sept 8th. Maiken Holm Neilson of the Mirain Stud in Denmark has contacted me to report that she has just taken
Cwrtycadno Sadwrn's first foal Mirain Toy Soldier to his first show where he was Best in Show.
Here he is below with judge Harold Zoet
July 2009 - Just back from the Royal Welsh Show, where Cwrtycadno
Cymro was second in the show sire ratings
with only four of his
progeny entered -
they were all well placed
June 2009 - Wian Dawlish has at last had her foal by Cwrtycadno
Cymro. Unfortunately we have not yet been able to get near enough
to determine if it is a colt or a filly, (Dawlish is known as Wian
Seldom Seen by certain members of the Section B fraternity!) but
it looks healthy from afar!
Stop Press : It is a COLT and thus for sale!
