Tynyfid Stud

A small stud breeding Welsh ponies, cobs & part breds for performance and temperament. Old fashioned bloodlines producing bone and action for riding and driving.

Large Part Breds

This side of the stud is run by my daughter Gaynor Edwards who after having a great deal of success with Merryman at dressage has decided to breed more.

Tynyfid Merryman 4502G
Born 1994, Ht 16HH
Tynyfid Merryman Sire Plover (Tb)
by Cruise Missile (Tb)
Dam Tynyfid Megan

Merryman was bred to provide Gaynor with a horse for the future. He has fulfilled this expectation and more.

He is out of Tynyfid Megan who competed in all pony club activities in her youth. Merryman turned out to have stunning looks that never cease to attract attention wherever he goes.

He competes at Prix Saint George level dressage regularly and has competed at Intermediare I. He has 180 British Dressage points. Merryman was awarded the Welsh Part Bred Horse Group Dressage Pioneer Award in 2001 and the Prix Saint George (PSG) award in 2008. He has competed in numerous British Dressage Regional Championships and holds his own in the best company. He is a truly British bred dressage horse and has been great fun. He regularly scores in the 60’s at PSG. His next challenge will be PSG music classes.

Tynyfid Brenhinol 7543G
Born 2003
Sire Brentano II (Hann)
Dam Tynyfid Megan
Tynyfid Brenhinol

Dai is by Brentano II who was awarded the accolade of Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2003. Brentano II descends from one of the most successful mare families in Hanover. He is trained to advanced level dressage. Brentano’s offspring are highly successful in the dressage arena and include Brentina (representing USA) and Barclay (representing Holland) both of who competed in the Athens Olympics.

Dai is now competing at Elementary level dressage and is training at medium level. He was awarded the 2008 Welsh Part bred Horse Group Dressage Pioneer award for horses under seven years old competing in affiliated dressage. 2009 has been a good year to date, with eight wins in a row at elementary.

Tynyfid Morning Glory
Born 2004
Tynyfid Morning Glory Sire Rotspon (Hann)
Dam Brenhindy Mergan

We are very pleased with Glory, who has many of the characteristics of her sire, Rotspon. He is a son of one of the top dressage sires, Rubinstein I. Rotspon won his stallion performance test in 1998 and is renowned for his great rideability, outstanding movement and ability for dressage. Many of his youngstock has been successful in the show ring both in the UK and Germany.

Glory has an elegant neck and long sloping shoulder coupled with elastic movement. We have high hopes for Glory in the future as a broodmare. She has size and bone that is lacking in many modern sports horses. Glory has been lightly backed.

Finally, Glory had her first foal this year. Now six, it seems to have taken a long time to get this foal, but Murphy, born on St Patrick’s day, was worth the wait. We always said Glory would make a lovely broodmare, and this year she has matured, and proved she can breed an exceptional foal.

The foal, Tynyfid Murphy’s Law is by the Dutch bred stallion, Libro, who is graded with SHB(GB). Murphy is rather flashy, and is going to be a big boy. Glory is 16.2hh, and Murphy looks like he will be bigger.

Murphy is an exceptionally easy foal to do. He’s cheeky, as you would expect from a colt, but so good to handle.

He was awarded a First Premium for showjumping at the BEF Futurity Awards grading at Triley, earning a nine for his temperament and attitude and a nine for his frame.

He is now for sale, and Glory is in foal to the recently deceased Hanovarian stallion, Medoc.


Both Dai and Glory were conceived using one dose of frozen semen from Germany. We would like to thank Ron Williams MRVS (Equigene) for making this possible.

Partytime 16908
Born 2003
Partytime Sire Menai Firestorm
Dam Chloe (TB)

Patsy is a big moving, rangy mare and a real show off. She is by Menai Firestorm who was successful in the show ring as a youngster and out of a thoroughbred mare who goes back to Hubble Bubble on the dam side.

She has good bone and a wide front, with a pretty head. In 2007 Patsy bred us a beautiful filly foal, Tynyfid Party Popper by the German State Stud stallion, Rascalino.

Poppy has been successfully shown and is one of only a handful of Welsh part breds to be awarded a dressage premium under the British Equestrian Federation Futurity Award scheme.

Patsy produced her second foal this year, a bay filly, by the Holstein stallion, Cash Point. Both Patsy and her foal, Tynyfid Party Trick (Molly) were shown at the Royal Welsh in the Welsh Part Bred section, with Patsy coming fourth in her class, and Molly sixth.

Patsy has developed into a lovely mare, and through Poppy, has already proved what she can produce, and hopefully will produce many more offspring of this standard.

Molly is a powerful filly who built like a proper little event horse, but has the movement to score really highly in the dressage phase. She didn’t go forward for a BEF Futurity Award because I couldn’t take both foals and it was better for the colt to be graded this year.

Molly is for sale, and Patsy is in foal to another jumping stallion, the Holstein stallion, Zoey. It will be exciting to see how Molly, and next years foal develop, considering Poppy was not bred to jump, but really can jump, and Molly and next years foal have been bred to jump!!

Tynyfid Party Popper Tynyfid Party Popper
Large Welsh Part Bred filly to make 16HH,
Foaled 22 May 2007

Sire – Rasculino (Hanovarian)
Dam – Partytime
DS – Menai Firestorm

This pretty bay filly is 25% welsh and has retained many welsh characteristics. Poppy is bred for dressage and has fantastic elastic paces inherited from her sire. Rascalino stands in Germany and is a successful and popular young sire. He won his performance test in 2004, receiving high marks for temperament and rideability. He received exceptional marks for the dressage portion of the test and also gained respectable marks for jumping. This he inherited through his dam from Wendekind/Ferdinand and Wendekrais/Ferdinand. He is a grandson of Rubinstein I on the sires side and goes back to World Cup III on the dams side.

Poppy’s dam is by the lovely Welsh Cob stallion Menai Firestorm who was successful at the Royal Welsh as a youngster. Her dam goes back to the thoroughbred stallions Tigerwood and Hubble Bubble.

Tynyfid Party Popper after taking the Sportshorse Championship at the Royal Welsh 2010Poppy has a lovely temperament and takes everything in her stride. She is a correct and elegant recently receiving a mark of 8.75 from the vets inspection at the BEF Futurity Awards.

Poppy has been shows successfully in limited outings, including winning the large Welsh Partbred foal class and reserve champion Welsh partbred at the 2007 Royal Welsh winter fair, and second in the sports horse foal class. She won her sports horse class at Bridgend County Show in both 2008 and 2009. She was also 3rd in her Welsh Partbred class at the 2008 Royal Welsh Show and 4th in 2009.

Poppy was awarded a BEF Futurity Award for Dressage in 2008 and 2009, and was reserve two year old dressage horse at Sunnybank Equestrian Centre in 2009.

2010 has been a great year for Poppy. She was champion Sports Horse at the Royal Welsh, winning her class of 30 two & three year olds and then taking the championship ahead of the yearling. She demonstrated her manners by giving a polished performance.

The week before she also attained a Higher First Premium for showjumping at the BEF Futurity Awards grading at Solihull Riding Club. She scored 9.25 with the vet and 9.25 for her temperament and attitude. After 2 hours waiting in the collecting ring for her turn to be assessed and loose jumped, she was the only horse to go through the jumping lane first time, and demonstrated not just her ability over a fence, but her enthusiasm and enjoyment for jumping, even though it was 8 o’clock at night by the time she got her turn.

Poppy has now been backed, and so far, so good. In 2011 she will compete in age classes in dressage and showjumping and some showing, before a decision is made as to which discipline she is best suited to.

Poppy is a special little horse who has really bonded with me over the last few months, and we are having fun at the moment.
