Howran Hills Farm began
with the purchase of a single Welsh Pony in 1996. That
pony proved to us that ponies like these were intended
for families. The temperament of this pony was such that
at six years of age, she could be trusted with a four
year old, inexperienced rider. She
was and "is incredible"! She was the beginning...
Then, the search was
on, to find a suitable mate so that we could create
other ponies like E.J. .
Ponies of wonderful temperament, with substance and
bone, that could be used by the entire family, but that
still exhibited the characteristics of "true Welsh
type". Since we were only interested in breeding
'Section B' ponies, this turned out to be more difficult
than originally thought. We eventually found our
herd sire, Las Brisas Fandango on a large ranch in
Texas. He was exactly what we had been searching
for and more! Of course having suitable mares was
then a requirement for ensuring that this stallion's
traits could be passed on.

Our entire family is involved with the ponies and with
showing and training. Our favourite thing to do as a
family is to trail-ride with our neighbours on Sunday
What better way to spend the day????
