    Default Top Pony Hunter Stallions

    Does anyone have suggestions about small pony Hunter stallions? They need to have produced winning foals recently. Thank you!

    Small as in Section A? Or small pony stallion as in crossbred?

    Section A full welsh stallions - Daventry Farm has a very proven stallion in Penrhyn Sporting Chance. The real deal.

    JLA Sir William has produced a lot of winning hunter ponies.

    I'm a big fan of him. I owned a 3 y/o stallion by him, easiest pony to break ever. He is now gelded and does field hunting - dead dead quiet and a 10+ jump.

    Section A's are tough, tough, tough to find a good one. Farnley Farm has a nice one that is relatively new, and a lovely mover. No proven performance ponies that I know of yet.

    We had great good fortune using *Telynau Falcon on our small TB mare to produce a crossbred pony hunter who is being brought along for the show ring by his new owner in Ohio. He can be seen at http://sakurahillfarm.com/horses.php?HOID=38, Sakura Hill Sensei. I believe that Anne Hedge of Whitehedge Farm in TX has had considerable luck with his progeny in the show ring.

    Champlain Rainmaker. owned by Nancy Burnett stands in Va. He is not a sec A, however. He is 12.2, passes on a fabulous disposition and is a gorgeous pony. My large pony, Centerfield, is by Max and was the easiest pony ever to start. Centerfield was 2010 USEF Grand Pony HOTY and he is only coming 8 years old.

    I'm breeding my 15.1hh mare, so I need something that will ensure I get a pony rather than a small horse. Would a small Section B do the trick? It's incredibly difficult to find any nice Section As...

    That is exactly the size of our TB mare used with Sec. A *Telynau Falcon who I think is 11.1 or 2 hh. We chose him because of his fluid movement. Even George Morris has commented on how nice the resulting now 3 yr. old is.

    Our 12.2 1/4 HH Section B stallion has been successfully producing large pony hunter prospects out of 15.1 - 16 HH mares.

    Our Section A stallion Penrhyn Sporting Chance has also successfully produced pony hunters out of larger mares.

    Another small pony, who hasn't been mentioned yet, and who has been successful at producing pony hunters is Blue Who, owned by Sugarbrook Ponies.

    It's actually www.ponyhunterstallion.com or www.penrhynsportingchance.com ....but that's OK! Whatever gets people to the website. Thanks so much for mentioning him.

    I'm sure we'd all love to hear more about the mare...as that will likely determine which stallion will suit the mare best!

    I have 2 very nice moving, well bred, small Sec. B stallions that I invite you to take a look at - both are on my website along with video. Rondo has several outstanding moving babies on the ground now. Another great small pony stallion to look at is definitely Blue Who - www.sugarbrook.com. He is a great mover and super sweet!

    15.1 is a great size to go with Section B stallions. I understand you want a full welsh, so your options are endless!

    Max Max Max. (Champlain Rainmaker) I was at his breeder's house again today, and saw so many nice offspring.
    Or how about Belshazzar?

    I think you have a lot more options than you might think. In addition to the A's, there are many, many Section B stallions that are on the smaller side (12.3ish). Check out the recent VPBA stallion service auction page to see lots of them in one place, all with sizes listed. www.vpba.com That is in no way a complete listing but a good place to see a bunch in one place and compare. See also www.welshpony.org stallion listings for more.
    It would be great to hear what you might like to try to improve upon in your mare, then maybe it would be a little easier to steer you in the right direction. I would suggest not only looking on the USEF site, but if you see a stallion you like or a pony in the ring that you like, see if you can find out the breeding and google to see more offspring or contact the SO directly for examples. Good luck to you!

    Thanks, everyone! A few of the ponies y'all have mentioned I am interested in and plan on researching their offspring.

    You totally can't go wrong with Farnely Belshazzar. The best standing pony stallion in the country I honestly think.

    Here is one of the MANY we have raised.
