Tyddyn Cochyn stud was formed in 2008, based on the original ‘war horse’ the Trakehner, a majestic, strong and noble horse.

The aim of the stud is to breed horses and ponies of the highest quality for competition without negotiating on temperament and trainability.

The stud is situated in the beautiful clwydian range, where our horses are allowed to mature slowly on the rolling hills, allowing for correct skeletal and muscular development.

I fell in love with horses at an early age which lead me to a career working with Olympic showjumper Carl Edwards and his father Charlie Edwards, who has bred horses to Olympic level. My quest for knowledge continued, whilst studying a degree in Equine and Human Sport Science I had the opportunity to work for Ivor and Myfanwy Lloyd at Derwen Cobs. My experience working for these knowledgeable and fascinating people has guided me with making the correct choices when breeding horses.

I am now a lecturer in Animal Science, where I can apply my knowledge for anatomy to my own horses, ensuring their physiological and nutritional needs are met. Providing the best start to life.
