This lovely roan pony was sold as a foal but due to various circumstances I bought him back last autumn

. I gelded him and he ran back with the herd.. He is now about 14hh at 2 yrs old and has the most charming temperament.

He came 2nd in the 2 & 3 yr old gelding class at The New Forest Pony Enthusiasts, his first show !


Mystic went to the New Forest County Show and won a huge 1,2,&3 yr old gelding class and was also 3rd at the Breed Show.

I am pleased to say that Mystic has found a lovely home locally with Mandy Shepherd and her  family!


By Burley Showman ex Longslade Moondaisy

Dumbledore did very well at Staffordshire County recently. This was his first county show and he came 2nd in both the Tiny Tots and the Cradle Stakes with his 7 year old rider this follows his success at the Meynell pony club camp last year winning the one day event when Sammy his rider was only 6 years old. Well done Sammy and Dumbledore !

Dumbledore continued his winning ways by coming 1st again at the Pony Club Camp One Day Event again this year 2010!

Weirs Aveline was given silver graded mare status at the AGM March 26th 2010. Although Aveline is no longer with us I am pleased that her progeny have given her this recognition. The scheme only started in the present format in 2003 so I am very pleased that even though it has only been seven years and she has reached this level.


Breed Show

Tiptoe Holly won the small pony class and came second in the small open brood mare at the breed show and her foal Toy Soldier was second in the well filled colt foal class.

Barrister won the yearling colt class, Burley Holly was second in the Large Novice Brood Mare

and the Supreme Champion Hollybrooke Rambler was by Burley Traveller out of Randalls Little Gem ( my Mothers breeding).

Congratulations go to John & Wendy Adams owners and breeders of Rambler !!

Mastwood Avril and her 3 week old filly foal, Burley Faith, competed in the novice New Forest brood mare class at the Enthusiasts show on June 7th. Avril won her class and much to my delight, Faith continued the winning streak by winning her foal class as well. I was very pleased with her behaviour as I only started to halter her 5 days before the show !

Burley Barrister has continued with his success by winning the yearling class at Ardingly (South of England) and NPS Area 24!








Burley ponies were successful at the Bath & West coming 3rd (Burley Barrister) for owner Sandra Kilford and 4th ( Burley Gold Rush) for owners John & Jackie Lowth, in the yearling class and 4th (Burley Timelord ) for John & Wendy Adams in the 2 & 3 year old class.

Aveline was bought as a foal from Harry Burt at weaning straight off the forest. She has had many wonderful foals too numerous to mention. Most have gone on to be very successful in both performance and showing .

I am very sorry to say that after having the privilege of owning Aveline for many years I lost her last Autumn. However I have retained her filly Prophecy by Applewitch Pure Magic, who I hope will become a worthy replacement.
