Birchmoor ponies have the perfect temperament for showing, riding and driving. All but one of our stallions, passed and present have been ridden and driven, most of our larger mares have been ridden at some time in their life when not breeding. A working stud with five stallions on offer, we accept up to ten visiting mares each stud season.
