The Hollybrooke Stud  
Visiting Mares
Visiting mares enjoying the spring grass
Some of the Stud's broodmares are Forest bred and spent their early life running on the New Forest, proving themselves to be both tough and hardy. Others have had careers under saddle or in the show ring. Most are graded with the New Forest Pony Breed Society.
A large all weather school
All the ponies have been carefully selected according to strict criteria with particular emphasis on temperament. The stallions are multiple championship winners. They have had ridden careers in which they competed and performed in a variety of disciplines to a high standard. The stud's foundation stallion Burley Branston was one of the breed's most versatile and successful performance ponies. He left a legacy of wonderful ponies.
Secure and well maintained grazing
The Hollybrooke Stud is situated on the borders of the New Forest and breeds top quality show and performance New Forest ponies. It boasts excellent facilities including large indoor stables, well managed grassland, post and railed paddocks and a 25m by 60m menage. The ponies share the farm with a herd of young beef cattle.

The Stud has two New Forest stallions who have both produced hugely successful offspring (see their stallion pages) that have won many championships and a band of about eight brood mares plus young stock.

The stallions cover both our own and visiting mares. They both run with mares but the majority of visiting mares are covered in hand.
Many of our home bred ponies have had enviable performance and show ring successes. We aim to produce ponies that combine correct conformation and movement with a kind, calm and willing temperament.

Both the foals and the young ponies live as part of a herd where they are
allowed to grow and develop naturally. They learn their social skills and have others of their own age to play with, which is an important part of their over all development. The foals are taught to lead, tie up and have their feet trimmed when they are weaned. They spend their first winter stabled and after that they live in the fields in mixed groups of fillies and geldings. They are loaded in both a trailer and a lorry when moving from one grazing field to another and soon become confident travelers.
