Look forward to seeing you!
This year we have 10 mares in foal to the Supreme Champion stallions: Shilstone Rocks War Lord, Shilstone Rocks Northcountryman and Shilstone Rocks Snow Goose. All three stallions have qualified and competed successfully at HOYS and they have all sired County Show winners. Normally we prefer to keep most of our foals, as we enjoy to see them growing up. However this year all our foals will be on offer, through lack of time to bring them up as they should be.
As the foals arrive we will be putting their particulars on our web site for you to see what we have to offer and book them for collection when they are weaned.

Shilstone Rocks Sunshimmer 2000. Bay mare. Approximately 11.3hh. Sire Shilstone Rocks War Lord, Dam Cawsand Sunrise. A wonderful childs pony, the kind everyone wants. Only offered for sale as we have kept one of her daughters. She has taken children up over the moor, off the lead for many years and is completely safe for them to ride and handle. Excellent conformation and should do really well in lead rein classes.
Teigncombe Down 2003, 11.2 ½ hh, 116cm. Sire Shilstone Rocks Star Fighter, Dam Roany. Again a wonderful child’s pony. We are keeping her last years filly foal to replace her. She has been working in the riding centre for most of her life and loves children. She should do really well in lead rein classes. She is ridden up over the moor.
These two mares do not often come onto the open market as they are normally passed on between families who know them. References can be had for both by parents who have had them on loan during the winter.
Shilstone Rocks Dunlin. 2011. Bay 11.1hh, 113 cm. Sire Shilstone Rocks Fire Bird, Dam Shilstone Rocks Dunstone. Half sister to Supreme champion Shilstone Dunna Brook.

Her conformation is excellent and she has a good future as a first class lead rein pony and later as a first ridden.
Shilstone Rocks Chambre 2014. Bay yearling. Sire Supreme Champion Shilstone Rocks North Countryman, Dam Shilstone Rocks Chardonnay. Full sister to two champions (including Shilstone Rocks Rioja), she should have a great future in the show ring. At the moment she is leggy (which I like to see in a yearling) and growing fast. Should be top class to show next year. It is not often that a Dartmoor of this quality comes to the market.
Shilstone Rocks Petal 2010. Bright bay mare. 11.3 hh. Sire Supreme Champion Shilstone Rocks North Countryman, Dam Rosey (unregistered Dartmoor). A charming, quality pony. Should make an excellent WHP or lead rein pony. Had all the ground work done last summer so should not take a lot to get her going. Well handled.
