Collytown Shetland Stud
Established in 1997, Collytown stud is situated on the picturesque border of Devon and Cornwall and is home to over a hundred registered pedigree shetland ponies of miniature size, the majority between 28 to 32 inches (excluding our ridden shetland). With herds of excellent pedigree and bloodlines boasting a variety of both broken and solid colour we are proudly producing homebred stock of quality and substance.
Breeding ponies with correct confirmation and exceptional free movement, we pride ourselves on our shetlands being friendly, easy to handle and a pleasure to own.
Our ponies are shown successfully both In Hand & Under Saddle and are exported Worldwide.
BHS & NVQ qualified along with holding a National Certificate in the Management of Horses, to add to our many years of hands on experience.
When foaling, our mares benefit from wearing a specialist Breeder Alert Foaling Alarm that pages us as soon as foaling begins so we are present at every single birth.
Collytown Stud occasionally hosts Equine Vet Talks, Horsemanship demonstrations and Riding Club activities.
