About the Stud

We are delighted to have this opportunity to introduce you to our stud, based in Chieveley, a peaceful part of the English countryside, near Newbury in Berkshire.

We established Snelsmore Shetland Pony Stud (‘Snelsmore’) in 1993, adding to our already busy life of breaking and competing horses.

Originally starting as pets for our two children, we gradually progressed further to where we are today; owning around 65 ponies of excellent pedigree on our well-maintained stud.

A combined experience of over 95 years dealing with horses has stood us in good stead for knowing what is required to breed top quality ponies with correct conformation, movement and temperament.

Stud visits are always welcome, however please contact us well in advance to arrange an appropriate time and date.
