About Bamborough Pony Stud

Bamborough Pony Stud is located in the picturesque central western New South Wales, half way between Cowra and Canowindra . The stud was founded in 1969 by Jill Grant, initially breeding and showing Australian Ponies. Over the years the influence of the Welsh Ponies has increased within the stud and more recently Riding Ponies have been introduced. Bamborough Pony Stud now produces quality Welsh Mountain, Welsh, Part Welsh and Riding Ponies.

The stud comprises of over 40 broodmares, carrying some of the best UK and Australian bloodlines, including Downland Chevalier, Downland Mohawk, Downland Warrior (Imp), Rotherwood State Occasion, Keston Royal Occasion (Imp), Weston Picture (Imp), Imperial Julianna, Weston Pin-Up Boy and Waxwing Herod (Imp). The stud was fortunate to import two exceptional Welsh stallions from the UK, Boston Bittermint (Imp) & Eyarth Tigra (Imp).

Bamborough ponies have been sold all over Australia and even exported to New Zealand. The ponies have excelled both in hand and under saddle at major shows across Australia, including breed shows, Royal and Horse of the Year shows.

Tragically Jill passed away in July 2010, however Robert continues to run the stud with help from his daughter, Kylie Hickman and a very capable stud team.

The studs aim is to continue to produce quality ponies with excellent movement and lovely temperament, which has been the formula for the stud’s success over the past 48 years. Visitors are always welcome to come and enjoy the ponies.
