Show quality stock for sale....

Regrettably I cannot keep all the foals so each year I reluctantly part with some to five star homes. I specifically only breed from exceptional mares and stallions and pride myself on producing very well tempered, big and straight moving ponies and cobs that are very true to type with bundles of quality and character. You can therefore be confident that all my foals are from the very top bloodlines, with fantastic conformation and genuine and kind temperaments. Enquiries from overseas purchasers are also welcome - I have exported and sold a number of ponies and cobs throughout Europe as well as to Australia and America. I have an excellent team of transporters that I am happy to provide details for and can help with export arrangements Worldwide. Please contact me with any enquiry. I am very proud of all my foals. Ponies and cobs bred at Taraco have been exported far and wide and many have gone on to succeed at National, County and Association level in hand, as well as to be great success stories under saddle and in harness for their owners.

Breeding for you to show, breed, ride or drive...

The horses at Taraco Stud are wormed, attended to by farrier, chiropractor, dentist or vet as necessary and are all open to any inspection or vetting. They are sympathetically weaned, handled and halter broken, and new owners frequently report how quickly they settle in to their new homes without any sign of stress or anxiety something I put down to both their great temperaments and the start in life they get. You will find cheaper foals for sale but unlike some breeders I do not look to cut corners in their care or upbringing so my foals are not compromised in anyway. So if you are looking for a top show quality welsh mountain pony or cob, that has had a good start in life, and can offer an amazing home yourself please email me or call on 07941487616. The home is much more important than money so the price can be negotiable. All our stock is open to any inspection or vetting and prospective purchasers are encouraged to view stock before purchasing. Strictly no timewasters please.

He is a top sire, producing champion foals including ones in Australia, New Zealand, USA, and Europe. He is by the late Trevallion Hooch, sire ratings topping and RWAS winning stallion, and he is out of a mare by Crugybar Mabon Mai. Enzo offers discerning purchasers the opportunity to buy a top quality stallion, that is a true-to-type welsh cob, combining depth, body, bone and feather with an exceptional front and ground-covering paces.

Looking for your own Valegro?
Want the best of welsh with a little something extra?

Welsh Cobs are acclaimed as the best ride and drive in the World, and are athletic performance horses in their own right. I aim to combine the character, versatility, endurance and temperament of the welsh breeds with the height, balance, flexibility and tractability of the Oldenburg. The Dressage World Champion Sandro Hit has shaped modern dressage breeding, producing beautiful uphill types with light-footed, elegant movement and an enchanting charisma and I have carefully selected a performance tested and licenced son of his to bring the very best to my breeding as always. The first foals are hopefully due in 2020 so please contact me if you would like to be added to the waiting list. Photo by KH Photography of WPB Taraco Emerald owned by S.Hamilton.
