The Hope Herd running in their natural environment above the Towy Valley

The first “Hope” pony to be registered with the Welsh Pony and Cob Society was in 1964 though ponies and Cobs were kept by John’s father, Gwilym Harris, long before that time, also at the Hope Farm, originally a public house, having been in the family some 150 years. Today it is the base of the 360 acre farm that is also home to pedigree Blue Faced Leicester and Jacob Sheep as well as Welsh Black cattle.

Several of the Mountain Ponies trace back to the “Paylands” stud of Linda’s aunt, Daphne Pennick, a long time breeder from Essex.

Cennen Fusilier and John in the early seventies

The first stallion to stand at Hope was Cennen Fusiler by Coed Coch Planed, bred by Emrys Bowen and purchased as a yearling in 1965. His influence is still in the herd today.
