All the best to you all for the current season!



Coppice Fanfare 

ex Coppice Briar Rose (Glenfall Exelsior ex Blossom of Luckdon)
Piebald filly to make 40+”, born 7 May 2007

The chunkiest foal that Rosie has had by Fanfare, with a very neat head.  Will be retained to build up our broken-coloured stock and produced a pretty bay filly to Abbotsford Ice Cube (Lolly) in 2013.  Now broken to ride and doing well in LR and FR classes.


Pictured August 2010.




Dryknowl Colcarrick (chestnut and white 39.75")

ex Coppice Butterfly (Blue and white 38")

Blue and white filly to make 38/39", born 28 May 2015.


Exquisite filly, a granddaughter of Coppice Fanfare on both sides and has inherited his active hocks and movement.  Long legs so I'd expect her to be taller than her mother and could make a good 39".  Very sweet but plenty of presence for the show ring.


Pictured August 2015, having a little doze!





Coppice Bandsman

ex Coppice Posy
Chestnut & white filly to make 39”, born 14 June 2008

A very smart, well-marked filly, typical chunky Bandsman/Posy foal.  Show quality and will make a good in hand or ridden show prospect. Had a well-marked skebald colt  to Dryknowl Colcarrick in 2014.  Very sweet and quiet and would make a smashing children's ridden pony, or a fun in hand mare.  Only for sale as she is not being covered this year and is totally wasted.

Pictured May 2015.



Abbotsford Ice Cube 'Lolly' (Grey)

ex Riccalton Marigold (Chestnut roan)

Roan/grey gelding, to make 41/42", born 7 May 2014


Impressive, tall colt with big limbs and a very pretty 'Lolly' head.  From sought-after Southley & Riccalton bloodlines.  Now chestnut roan and could go grey later.  Very good mover.  Outstanding ridden prospect.


Pictured Aug 2015.





Abbotsford Ice Cube (Lolly) 

ex Coppice Bella Rosa
Bay filly to make 39.5"/40", born 21 May 2013

Pretty little filly, Bella's first foal.  Extremely laid back, friendly and sweet. Would make a smashing children's pony.

Pictured July 2014.









Abbotsford Ice Cube (Lolly) 

ex Coppice Fortune
Bay filly to make 40”+, born 12 May 2013

Nice chunky filly with Lolly's lovely head, good colour and long legs for performance.  Very friendly and bold and full of presence.  Will be retained for breeding.

Pictured July 2014.




Coppice Bandsman 

ex Seva Wednesday
Skewbald 38”, born April 2005

Absolutely top class, well-marked show mare, taking many firsts at county level and always highly placed even in large classes of big blacks.  Had a smart chestnut and white filly in 2009.

Pictured in October 2013. 



Coppice Fanfare

ex Coppice Briar Rose

Bay and white filly to make 40/41", born 2 June 2011

Another gorgeous, elegant coloured filly from Rosie, full sister to Coppice Beltane, Coppice Bay Rose, Coppice Brigitta, Coppice Bella Rosa and Coppice Bernadette . Well-marked, pretty head, long legs and potential as a classy show ring star!

She will be retained and brought out under saddle when she's old enough - to follow in the footsteps of her illustrious siblings!

Pictured in June 2014.




Coppice Fanfare

ex Coppice Dolly Vera

Black gelding to make 39.5/40", born 3 May 2011

Very handsome boy with a super topline, the active movement of his father and his mother's quality.  First time out at the Shetland Performance Show July 2014, winning the 2/3 year old standards and taking standard junior champion.  Brave and sensible but full of presence, he will make a smashing ridden pony.


Pictured in July 2014..







Coppice Dandy Jack 

ex Coppice Dolly Vera (Scamells Cracker ex Coppice Dolly Virginia)
Black mare 39", born May 2004



A very feminine, elegant mare - very much of the 'Dolly' line.  Glossy jet black, beautiful head and eye and active, flowing paces that cover the ground.  


Dolly Marie was professionally broken and schooled by Natalie Greasley and goes forward in a good outline and lovely manners. 


Dolly Marie is currently based at a children's yard in Worcester, where she has been since August 2013.  She has now done just about everything, including helping several tiny people to come off the lead.  She is an old hand at horse agility and mounted games, has done show classes on and off the lead, jumps small worker courses, hacks out in all weathers and will stand for hours being dressed up as a princess.


Pretty, sweet and kind, she loves children and children love her. Would be a great pony for a family to do LR, FR, PC and fun stuff.


Pictured in July 2013 with four year old Evie.



... and in July 2013 with eight year old Kitty.






Coppice Fanfare 

ex Coppice Briar Rose
Black colt to make 39”, born 22 June 2013

We were really hoping for another coloured foal from Rosie and Fanfare, like the last five foals they've had, particularly as this was Rosie's last foal before she retired.  So a black colt was not on the order book!  But this really is a smart little colt, very friendly and confident.  Should make a super children's pony.

Pictured March 2014.




Abbotsford Ice Cube (Lolly) 

ex Riccalton Marigold
Roan gelding to make 40, born 20 May 2010

Lovely, smart gelding with substance and a very sweet temperament.  Super FR prospect..

Pictured June 2013 as a three year old.





Coppice Bandsman 

ex Coppice Posy (Coppice Bugle ex Newtown Peppermint)
Chestnut gelding 40.5", born 31 May 2007

Smashing big gelding with good limbs and substance and a kind, if cheeky, temperament.   Gorgeous colour and very eye-catching.  Broken in autumn 2011 and has done his first few shows in 2012, already winning his Novice LR ticket (he won't be entered this year, so will still be a novice LR next year).

Pagan is a lovely LR pony and is ready to go on as a junior's pony.

Pictured with Olivia (aged five) and Imogen, Shetland Performance Show, July 2012.




Sapphire Vasheer

ex Coppice Dolly Diana
Black gelding to make 39”, born 18 May 2009

Smart little gelding with a pretty head, quite elegant but broad in the chest and with a good bum.  Sensible and bright, will make a super lead-rein and first ridden pony and would also drive.

Pictured May 2012.



Coppice Bandsman ex Coppice Posy (Coppice Bugle ex Newtown Peppermint)
Chestnut (flaxen mane & tail) 40+”, born May 2005

A very attractive mare with a good body, short cannons and masses of substance.  Good, strong chestnut colour with flaxen mane and tail.  Foaled a smart chestnut colt in 2009 and again in 2010.  

Now going very nicely with her new owners.  
Pictured in July 2008.



Coppice Everyman

ex Riccalton Marigold
Chestnut colt to make 39", born 5 May 2009

Marigold's first foal, a chunky colt with a huge front, pretty head and a big white 'Bandsman' star.  Short-coupled with longish legs and should make a useful size like his mum.  Will be gelded Autumn 2012. Very sweet temperament and will make a future FR pony. 

Pictured June 2012.

Abbots Ford Ice Cube (Southley bred)

ex Coppice Prudence
Chestnut gelding to make 40+”, born 1 June 2010

Pictured August 2011.







Coppice Fanfare

ex Coppice Briar Rose (Glenfall Excelsior ex Blossom of Luckdon)
Skewbald (bay and white) filly 42”, born 1 May 2006

A stunning, well-marked, very feminine filly with a beautiful head and her father's extravagant and ground-covering movement.  Broken and produced by Natalie Greasley.  In 2011 Brig qualified NPS Picton (third in the final), Open FR and Young Pony.  This season, 2012, she has already qualified NPS Grand Prix and Young Pony and will do the YP final at NPS Champs in August.

Stunning to look at and naturally well-balanced, with the sweetest and most amenable temperament, Brig is one of the best ridden Shetlands around at the moment and she will go right to the top in the right hands.  She has the extra advantage of being able to do CHAPS classes as well as breed classes and mixed M&M's.

Pictured July 2012 with Hope at the Shetland Performance Show..


Coppice Everyman

ex Coppice Willow
Skewbald filly to make 36”, born 27 May 2009

Willow's first foal, an elegant little filly turning into a very chunky and square little person and with a good coat, nice limbs and good movement.  Has a lot of 'look at me' and would  make a real show-stopper.

Pictured June 2012.





Coppice Bandsman

ex Coppice Posy
Chestnut gelding to make 39"/40”, born 12 July 2009

Typical Bandsman/Posy foal, big boned and short coupled, kind and sensible.  Will make a super ridden pony, driver or in hand gelding.

Pictured August 2011.




Sapphire Vasheer

ex Coppice Dolly Marie
Black gelding to make 39+”, born 12 August 2009

At last!  Dolly Marie held onto this one so long we thought he'd be a yearling by the time he was born!  Her first foal, a very smart, jet black, chunky little bloke with a lovely broad head and huge eye.  Still a bit gangly so we think he'll put on a spurt and make around 40".  A big-moving pony for the ridden job.

Pictured May 2012.




Coppice Fanfare

ex Earlswood Joy
Bay and white filly to make 39”, born 1 April 2008

Well-marked, chunky and free-moving.  Sold to Frances Morkill of the Gwyddelfynydd Stud and doing well in the show ring.

Coppice Bandsman 
ex Lockinge Elspeth
Chestnut, 39.5” born 1997

Ed is so handsome and so full of character, we just love him. At the 2006 SPSBS Breed Show he was champion gelding overall! Ed had six weeks' training with Natalie Greasley in April '06 and did two years with Tabs Smith, including workers and turns out to have a real 'ping' and loves his job. He qualified for the Picton in 2007.

2008 saw him start a partnership with Ellie Jones and in 2009 they are having a wonderful time in FR, taking the mini championship at Leicester County, reserve at NCPA Derbys and gaining a well-deserved fourth in the HOYS FR qualifier at Staffs Country Festival, among a host of smart Welsh and Dartmoors.
Pictured July 2007 at NPS Area 17 with Tabs...

Coppice Bandsman 

ex Coppice Dolly Daydream (Coppice Dandy Jack ex Coppice Dolly Diana)
Bay 40”, born 2002, 8 years


Daisy is a super, quality mare, very typey with bone and substance, a very pretty head and lots of hair.  Professionally broken to ride by Natalie Greasley last year and only lightly shown last season. Now in her second year under saddle and competing novice ridden, FR, LR and LR jumping, juniors and opens - she goes as well in a snaffle or two reins and has just qualified for the open FR final at NPS Champs*.  Jumping small courses off lead at home and has a natural talent for the future.  


Also shown in hand and placed well since a yearling, including champion Midlands in Hand 2005, champion Fillongley 2009 etc and shown with success in young handlers.  Bred a super foal in 2007.

Coppice Everyman 

ex Coppice Daisy Belle (Coppice Bandsman ex Coppice Dolly Daydream)
Bay gelding to make 39"/40", born 19 May 2007

Daisy's first foal.  A smart, chunky and extremely forward  little chap with a big body and good legs to make a typey ridden and in hand pony with quality and substance.  Also has the sensible and bold temperament to drive.  Ready to break and bring on for the 2011 season.  

Regrettably for sale as we did want to keep him for ourselves but as we're keeping Pagan, our other three year old gelding, we'll have to concentrate on him instead.

Pictured August 2010.




Abbots Ford Ice Cube (Southley bred)

ex Coppice Fortune
Chestnut roan/grey filly to make 40”+, born 19 May 2010

Tall, well boned filly, very friendly and stamped with Lolly's lovely head.  Super ridden prospect with long legs and good joints.  Born chestnut but definitely going grey.

Pictured July 2010.




Coppice Dandy Jack ex Coppice Dolly Diana (Glenfall Excelsior ex Glenfall Dolly Daydream), Black 37.5”, born 1998


A sweet little mare with a pretty head, well made and typey.  Shown in hand with success as a youngster and bred four super foals.  

Professionally broken by Natalie Greasley in Feb/Mar this year ('09) and going sweetly on and off the lead.  Real show quality and would make a classy lead rein pony for a small jockey, as well as a nice in-hand mare.  

Had her first outing under saddle at Leicester County and was placed sixth in a good class of smart Welsh and Dartmoors. Adores children and loves being busy, groomed and fussed.  Good to do in all ways.

Daydream enjoyed herself at the National Shetland Performance Show, Malvern, July 11 and 12 2009, in a variety of classes - lead rein, first ridden and in-hand, taking it all in her stride.


Now sold to Emma Moffat and family.

Coppice Bandsman 

ex Seva Wednesday
Chestnut & white filly to make 38”, born 6 May 2007

A very chunky yet feminine filly, typical of Wednesday's foals.

Pictured April 2009.



Coppice Everyman

ex Coppice Felicity
Blue roan filly to make 35”, born 13 May 2009

Felicity's first foal, a delightful little filly with a dinky head, quite dainty at birth but a proper little chunk now and has a very good body and bum.  Her sought after colour would make her an asset to any stud and she would also be a super little show mare.

Pictured February 2010.




Coppice Bandsman

ex Coppice Butterfly (Coppice Fanfare ex Coppice Belle Blue)
Chestnut and white filly to make 38/39”, born 13 May 2009

Chestnut (flaxen) colt to make 38”, born 14 May 2009

Very chunky, handsome colt with a white 'Bandsman' star and starting to go flaxen in his mane and tail.  Full brother to prize-winning Coppice Willow.  Great in-hand, driving and stallion prospect.

Pictured at 9 weeks.


Sapphire Vision ex Eclipse Indiana,  Bred by Chris and Ruth Gwilliam, Black 39”, born 21 May 2003

Issy is a quality mare with substance, very friendly and sweet.  Her first foal in 2008 was a good quality filly by Sapphire Vasheer.  Not covered for 2009 and will not be covered this year either, as we are cutting down.

For sale through no fault of her own, as we like her very much, but at only six and with such a good pedigree she has great potential as a brood mare with another stud or as a child's ridden pony, as she has such a good temperament.  But still a very regretful sale.

Pictured September 2009.




Coppice Fanfare

ex Coppice Briar Rose
Bay and white filly to make 41/42”, born 30 April 2009

Another big, quality coloured foal from Fanfare and Rosie.  Very showy and moves like a dream. Definite performance potential.

Grey (bay but with grey hairs coming through) colt to make 36/37”, born 18 June 2008

ex Coppice Fortune
Blue roan colt to make 40”, born 30 April 2008

A smashing colt with great limbs, to make a good-sized ridden pony.  Going a very good blue roan.  Standard roans are very thin on the ground, so we will be keeping our fingers crossed for more in the future from the pairing of Bobby and Fortune.

Firebird of Spring Cottage ex Cwmhen Beauty
Blue roan 36”, born 1997

A full sister to Coppice Belle Blue, but smaller and the spitting image of her old dad. Not covered until 2002 and produced a smart piebald colt foal by Coppice Bugle.  She was covered by Coppice Fanfare in 2004 and then went to Anne Ridley of North Yorkshire as a future driving pony.  Sadly, Star lost a lovely piebald filly just days before her due date, following an incident involving a stray herd of bullocks.  But she has made a full recovery and is now happily a mum-to-be again.

Pictured in August 2004.

Coppice Bugle 

ex Coppice Belle Star
Piebald to make 37”, born May 2003

Bugle’s last foal and named in tribute to him. Now gelded, this smart little chap should make a good middle height like his dad and would make a good little driver.  Very friendly and sweet-natured, Little Boogie has now gone to Sue Cruze of Warwickshire, together with Coppice Erik (see below).  'Hugo' will shortly start his driven training with Esme Howells, Bruin's mum.

Coppice Fanfare

ex Coppice Posy
Black to make 40”, born late May 2003

Posy and Fanfare appear to have misunderstood the rules, because this filly was ordered as a skewbald!  However, we've forgiven them both as Patience has turned out to be a very smart filly with good limbs, a pretty head and lovely topline.  Not shown due to lack of time.  Patience will make a very smart ridden show mare and performance broodmare, with the right temperament for children and also for driving.  Sold to Clare Armstrong of Suffolk.

Pictured late June 2005.



Coppice Bandsman 

ex Glenfall Exquisite
Bay to make 38”, born May 2004

Little Ex's first foal for seven years.  A chunky, well made little girl with a pretty head and a lively and friendly temperament.  Echo has presence and a smart way of going and would make a super little driver and a nice child's pony when she grows up.  Sold to Sue Taylor of Warwickshire.

Pictured in June 2006.


Coppice Bobby Blue 

ex Sapphire Faith
Blue roan colt to make 39”, born 13 April 2006

Smart little chap with a nice head and big eye and now a very good blue roan colour.  He looks like being quite tall and is an elegant mover and such a laid-back temperament.  Should make a super driving and children's pony.  Sold to Alex Bloomfield of Leicestershire.

Pictured in September 2006.


Scamells Cracker

ex Glenfall Exquisite

Black 38”, born 1994

A smashing little mare, with a good body and bone like her mother, and a strong Wetherden look about her. She bred several good, big fillies whilst with Julie Fisher and has now decided to have colts.  Had a super black colt to Coppice Bandsman in 2006 and has now gone to Sapphire Vasheer.  Lizzie has a sweet temperament, foals easily and is a good mother.  Very sad sale, as she was a little small for our stud and we have to cut down on our black mares to expand our coloured stock.

Photo shows Lizzie in May 2004 with Coppice Erik.



Coppice Dandy Jack 

ex Coppice Briar Rose
Black 37.5/38”, born 2002

So much quality she doesn’t know what to do with it, masses of hair and a superb body like her mother.  Shown once in 2004 and placed second, first time out.  Produced a lovely, chunky black filly to  Coppice Bandsman in 2006.   Sold through no fault of her own as she was a little small for our stud.  Blossom is very sweet and pretty, moves well and would make a super lead-rein and children's pony.
Pictured May 2007.
