  The UK Stud  



Bernwode is a small concern with a keen commitment to the breeding and production of top quality Sports Ponies for the FEI disciplines.  Our long term aim is to help the excellent grass root systems by providing 'up and coming' riders with realistically priced, British bred ponies capable of competing at the highest levels.


Our breeding programme is based strictly on temperament, conformation and performance ability and much attention is paid to the selection of stallions to compliment our outstanding mares.  All Bernwode progeny carry proven competition bloodlines which include National and International European medallists!


Bernwode youngstock receive a positive start in life, enjoying the correct balance of freedom, education and excellent general management.  The stud sits in 35 acres of idyllic Somerset countryside yet is within a four minute drive from the A303 allowing easy access for visitors and a peaceful setting for our growing stock.  All Bernwode foals are registered with the Sports Pony Studbook Society and are eligible for future studbook grading.


Bernwode bred Foals, youngsters and ridden ponies (up to 15.2hh) are occasionally available for purchase and our sales page also includes some of Bernwode Brokatís offspring available from other breeders.


Bernwode Stud also retains a number of their more established ponies to allow them to be placed in selected homes with suitable riders.  Past pony riders have included Louise Crutcher, a member of the 2004 European Pony Dressage Team, Gemma Abram who represented GB twice in 2007 and Tim Wilks, a member of the 2009 European Pony Show Jumping Team.  Less experienced pony riders are also benefiting from this arrangement with the stud and we welcome discussion with interested parties.


Visitors are always welcome by arrangement.
