Do you have ponies for sale?
We often have handled young-stock for sale and from time to time we sell broken ponies.
Where do your ponies run out?
Our herd is from hardy stock and runs throughout the year on 100 acres of enclosed upland fell overlooking Morecambe Bay in the South of Cumbria.
What stallions do you use?
Hades Hill herd is built on Heltondale stock which Walter LLoyd bought in 1957. We have also used Packway, Sleddale, Lownthwaite, Lunesdale and Welllbrow stallions. We have recently licensed our home bred stallion Hades Hill Geronimo by Lunesdale Tarquin out of Urwins Ruby.
Do you work your ponies?
Almost all of our brood mare are also broken to ride and drive. We have also snigged wood, carted hay, pulled coppice sledges and travelled with packsaddles across mountains with our ponies. Most years we travel by road to Appleby Fair with two ponies pulling a bow-top wagon. In 1994 Tom LLoyd travelled from Cumbria to Cornwall and back with a pair of Fells.
What colour are your ponies?
Our herd is predominantly black but we also have brown and grey.
