Commander was purchased in 1982 as a yearling, and has run out with mares since he was a two year old. He was ridden at home as a young horse, and hunted a little, but never shown, as we preferred him to run out with his mares. This horse has proved to be a wonderful sire of brood mares, passing on both his conformation and his wonderful temperament. Two of our senior mares are his daughters.

Rhodri’s dam is a daughter of the famous Tydfil Magic Princess. He was shown regularly as a youngster, winning many times.

He was  Reserve Youngstock Champion at the Royal Welsh Show in 1999, and Reserve Male Champion at the Royal of England in the same year. Due to the Foot and Mouth outbreak in 2001, we were unable to show Rhodri as a three year old, so instead we decided to bring him out as a four year old the following year. Not expecting to make a huge impact, we did in fact do very well, gaining wins and championships in good company at top shows. Rhodri is broken to ride and has been successfully shown under saddle.

Rhodri stood on lease with Klaus Lindberg in Demark for the 2006/2007 stud seasons.
