When it all began.............At the knee of our Grandfather!
Helen's imagination and desire to have her own Pony came from listening to our Grandads heroic tales of the team of horses he drove on the battlefields of Europe during the First World War.
The desire to own and breed Welsh Ponies/Cobs was born in 1978, and Len Bigley with Llanarth Flying Comet storming their way to Victory at the Lloyds Bank In-Hand championship of that year, are completely responsible!
'Coeden Stud' began in 1988!!
We have had many happy years and times since then. Just being involved and going to the shows and competing has been a life long pleasure. The joy of Breeding Quality Section C Ponies and seeing them at the Top of the Line for their new owners is a wonderful experience. We feel deeply privileged to have had the opportunity to meet and make so many friends all with the same interest.....Welsh Ponies and Cobs!
The opportunity to buy a little plot of Land and moving there to fulfill our ambition of having our own place with our own Ponies around us; as well as Dogs and Pygmy Goats and Chickens etc..etc.. came in 2005!
We now live in Haslingden in the Rossendale Valley!!!
