Cherrington Pony Stud is situated approximately 190km west of Sydney just over the Blue Mountains in the picturesque town of Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia.

The stud was officially formed in 1972, breeding and showing Australian ponies with much success. In the early 1980’s the influence of welsh ponies in the stud proved extremely popular and over the years the stud slowly started breeding both Welsh Mountain and Welsh Section B Ponies.

As the welsh numbers increased so did the passion for the breed and in 1988 Cherrington became exclusively welsh.

The stud comprises of approximately 40 ponies including foals. Our selected band of broodmares boast some of the most renowned and influential breeding in Australia and the UK. Pedigrees include Keston Royal Occasion Imp UK, Chamberlayne Don Juan Imp UK, Solway Master Bronze, Coed Coch Berwynfa, Downland Chevalier, Weston Chippendale Imp UK, Weson Gigli Imp UK, Coed Coch Llabed Imp UK, Downland Warrior Imp UK, Mirinda Sovereign, Imperial Juggler and Weston Cottonwood.


Two mares gain special merit to the success of the stud and the influence they have had, Congarinni Honeysuckle and Weston Charlotte Imp UK please visit our mare page to read more on these two special mares.


The stud has been fortunate to have sourced and used some of the country’s most exciting stallions over the years. Mirinda Sovereign (Keston Royal Occasion Imp UK x Rotherwood Love-In-The-Mist Imp UK was used frequently and our sincere thanks are extended to the Bolagamy Partnership for allowing this and thus forging a great friendship that has lasted well over 20 years. 



Our present stallions and upcoming colts have all been hand selected for their outstanding welsh characteristics, movement, temperament and quality bloodlines to compliment our band of broodmares and breeding program.


Our aim is to continue producing a true to type welsh pony with the quality, movement, conformation and temperament that has seen Cherrington ponies excel both in hand and under saddle at major shows across Australia over the last 25 years.
