The Thornberry Stud came about in 1979 when we purchased a yearling filly, namely Cwmwyre Samantha. Bought as a companion for a dressage horse we decided that we it might be fun to show her a little bit in hand and as they say the rest is history!

As the foundation of the Thornberry Stud it was with great sadness that this wonderful pony passed away in 2007 at the age of 29. We owe her so much, she gave us an enormous amount of enjoyment and pleasure and as a legacy has left us some wonderful daughters and grand-daughters who now form the basis of the stud.
She was Supreme Champion at the Royal Welsh in 1987 and is responsible for the Royal Welsh winners and Champions

Her line continues in the Stud through her daughters:
Thornberry Morwenna (by Mollegaards Spartacus), Thornberry Love Song (by Aston Love Knot) & Thornberry Samantha (by Eyarth Rio) and her grand daughter Thornberry Catrin (Cwrtycadno Cymro x Thornberry Morwenna)

Ponies bred at Thornberry continue to be successful both in-hand and under saddle.
We should like to thank all the people that have supported us throughout the years and we look forward to hearing news of ponies that we have both bred and owned.
