Welsh Ponies and Cobs dominate the first two days at HOYS.

From all of the season’s competitors, Welsh Ponies and Cobs have again taken many of the major honours for Native breeds on the first two days at the Horse of the Year Show. Following on from Glebedale Mumbo Jumbo’s Ridden Mountain and Moorland Championship last year, another Welsh Section A, Nantfforchog Blue Moondust took the title, closely followed by the Welsh Section D winner, Dyffryngwy Sir Picasso.

In the mini championship, Thistledown Van-der-Vaart took the tricolour winning his class for the fifth time. A truly remarkable record. The First Ridden winner was Idyllic Spartacus. The winning Section B was Cadlanvalley Bentley, whilst heading the Section C’s was Lynuck the Showman.
In the Mountain and Moorland Working Hunter Ponies, the 133cm winner was Milford Fair Honeybee.

The Society wishes to congratulate all the jockeys, and teams who have enabled these successes; none more so than the talented breeders for their commitment and vision in breeding these ponies and cobs.

Good luck to those competing during the next three days – keep the flag flying!

We look forward to bringing you their individual stories in detail over the winter months.

Merlod a Chobiau Cymreig ar y brig – wedi’r dau ddiwrnod cyntaf yn HOYS.

O blith cymaint o gystadleuwyr ar hyd y tymor mae Merlod a Chobiau Cymreig wedi cipio nifer o’r prif wobrau i’r bridiau cynhenid yn sioe Horse of the Year. Yn dilyn llwyddiant Glebedale Mumbo Jumbo llynedd, merlen Adran A gipiodd y Pencampwriaeth dan gyfrwy, Nantfforchog Blue Moondust, gydag enillydd dosbarth i’r Adran D, Dyffryngwy Sir Picasso yn dynn wrth ei chynffon wrth gipio’r cil-wobr.

Ym mhencampwriaeth y ‘mini’s’ Thistledown Van-der-Vaart aeth â hi, gan ennill ei ddosbarth am y pumed tro yn olynol, camp rhyfeddol!. Idyllic Spartacus oedd enillydd y dosbarth i farchogion cyntaf.
Yn yr Adran B aeth y wobr gyntaf i Cadlanvalley Bentley ac ar ben y rhes yn yr Adran C oedd Lynuck The Showman.

Tra yn yr adran i Ferlod Mynydd a Gweundir Hela sy’n Gweithio, enillydd y dosbarth 133cm oedd Milford Fair Honeybee.

Mae’r Gymdeithas yn dymuno llongyfarch yr holl farchogion a’r timoedd tu cefn sydd wedi hwyluso’r llwyddiannau yma, yn enwedig y bridwyr triw a thalentog am eu gweledigaeth.

Pob hwyl i bawb sy’n cystadlu dros y tridiau i ddod – Daliwch ati i chwifio’r faner!

Edrychwn ymlaen at rannu a dathlu straeon unigol yr uchod dros fisoedd y gaeaf.
