Standard shetland Sharptor Trinity made history at HOYS today, the first Shetland to ever qualify for the Cuddy as it is today and the only Shetland to qualify in over 30yrs, Trinity stood 2nd in the Cuddy Pony section taking her forward to the evening performance Supreme Championship, wearing her bride from Native Pony Bridles of course.
A huge congratulations to breeder Julian Walters of the Sharptor stud in Devon.

Thank you Native Pony Magazine..our article about NPBridles 2015 Supreme M&M Championships just landed on our doorstep in the fabulous HOYS issue.
A copy of our advert in the next Native Pony Magazine due any day now. I spent hours designing this ad and am so pleased with how it turned out (I hope you like it), but couldn't have done it without our wonderful customers who were so generous in kindly allowing me to use their photographs, a HUGE thank you so much.
Introducing our new 'Pirouette Browband'.
We love this Browband....Essentially workman like for M&Ms with a bespoke looking gorgeous subtle stitching detail.
Available in Havannah and Black in 1/2", 5/8" & 3/4" widths in Shetland, Pony, Cob, Full & xFull sizes for £15, or select this browband on any of our bridles for only an extra £8.
We love receiving photographs of your ponies in their new NBBridles and as a thank you have had a £50 voucher draw for all our lovely customers who have taken the time to send their picture in.....the lucky name out of the hat was Penny Moncur who sent us this photograph of her Highland modelling his new bridle..
Congratulations Penny, and thank you again to everybody for your lovely pictures and feedback it means a lot to us.
Just finished the first of our new size guides. Time consuming to do but love the result. We'll be slowing doing one for each bridle style/size over the next few months.
Native Pony Brides are sooo excited to announce we now have a stockist in...wait for it...NEW ZEALAND!
Still being less than 18months and so busy we have not yet considered stockists, however when approached by exciting new business, Stonefields Equestrian in New Zealand we couldn't refuse.
A fantastic day at High Horse Gala Championship show today. Great to see so many lovely M&M's in the rings and just look at our champions!
A fantastic day yesterday at Burwarton Agricultural show with the first 'Native Pony Supreme M&M Championship'. A huge congratulations to Tollgate Willows-Wish taking the Supreme title & to Reserve J T Jones' Section D colt Trefnant Falmai.
Personally this was such a special day for me, 18 months ago I was diagnosed with cancer which temporarily put all business plans on hold, however like most 'horsey' people a small hiccup like that was not going to stand in my way and only 6 months later Native Pony Bridles was launched.
The first 18 months have been truly amazing we were so busy I even missed celebrating our 1st birthday, so I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everybody who has supported me. I have been fortunate to have many wonderful customers whose word of mouth recommendations are invaluable and much apreciated.
A big thank you also to Burwarton show, a truly impressive one day Agricultural show and of course to every single eligible competitor who all stayed for the championship. There were some truly lovely ponies and one very, very proud sponsor in the ring.
Our great 2 page feature article in the Shetland Pony Stud Book Spring Magazine. So proud and think it looks amazing. A big thank you for all the hard work put into the magazine, and for making our article look so fab!
We have just received the latest edition of Equestrian Life magazine with our full page article. It looks fabulous, thank you Equestrian life.
