Hollybank Stud has had a cracking start to the 2013-2014 show season. At Ellesmere A&P Show Skibbereen Serenity (Nellie) was Champion Welsh Pony. At Ashburton A&P Show Nawarrah Park Lady's Man was Champion Welsh Adult and Supreme Welsh Exhibit, Cedar Park Regal Man was Reserve Champion Welsh Youngstock. At Canterbury A&P Show Lady's Man was Champion Welsh Stallion and once again Supreme Welsh Exhibit. Cedar Park Regal Man was Champion Welsh Youngstock, Reserve Champion Ridden Welsh and Champion First Ridden Pony. Then on the first weekend of December we made the big trip south - Cedar was entered for Balclutha A&P Show where he was Champion Welsh. The next day we headed to Gore to the Southland All Welsh Show. Cedar was Champion Section B Youngstock, with Nellie Reserve and then Cedar went on to win the Supreme Purebred Welsh Exhibit.

Welsh Pony & Cob Society AGM

Dawn Elliot - Monday, September 02, 2013

At the beginning of June I headed off to the NZ Welsh Pony & Cob Society AGM in Invercargill. It was a great chance to catch up with all the welsh people I know, plus meet some new ones! I also managed to end up on the Welsh Council for a one year term.

 

Nawarrah Park Lady's Man had some very good results at the end of year prize giving.....winning both the Punga Trophy for Overall Inhand Showing as well as the Section B Sires Ratings Award. Two of Lady's Man's progeny, Cedar Park Regal Man and Hollybank Royal Silver also finished in the top 10 for the Punga Trophy.
