Cedar Park Regal Man

Dawn Elliot - Monday, June 06, 2016

Cedar Park Regal Man (Nawarrah Park Lady's Man x Bendigo Precious Gem) is having a terrific new career under saddle and is currently out on lease to Cath and Stella Williams from Springston. Stella and Cedar have been out and about doing many shows in First Ridden as well as jumping up to 90cm, with mum Cath still doing the odd inhand show with him. Pictured are Stella and Cedar after a successful day at the Canterbury All Welsh Ridden Show in December 2015.


Canterbury Judges Visit

Dawn Elliot - Friday, January 22, 2016

A few days after the Canterbury All Welsh Show we were delighted to have a stud visit from the Australian judges Janet Murphy of Keyi Stud and Anthony Deane of Llanfairbryn Stud, escorted by Shirley Bennett of Glendale Stud.  Once again, wonderful to have the chance to show off the rest of the ponies at the Stud to the visiting international judges.

The 2016 Canterbury All Welsh Show was another great one for Hollybank Stud with Bendigo Royal Charm winning the Champion  Section B Adult, Supreme Section B, Best NZ Bred and, for the third year in a row, went on to take out the Supreme Overall Exhibit. This is also the sixth consecutive year that Hollybank Stud has won the Supreme Section B at Canterbury with three different ponies. Hollybank Wee Whisper (Nawarrah Park Lady's Man x Karanga Windchime) was also competing with Philip Peter and was Champion Section B Youngstock.

Welsh Society AGM 2015

Dawn Elliot - Thursday, June 04, 2015

In June 2015 I attended the New Zealand Welsh Pony & Cob Society AGM in Timaru. At the prize giving Nawarrah Park Lady's Man was awarded the Section B Sires Ratings for the third consecutive year. Second in command at Hollybank Stud, the imported stallion Imperial Messiah finished in second place behind Lady's Man. Lady's Man's daughter Nawarrah Park Camilla also finished second in the Punga Trophy Competition for most points over all NZ in inhand showing.
