SPSS Award for the Top Sire of Performance Ponies


At the 2009 British Breeding Dinner, SPSS Treasurer Edith Rutherford presented the SPSS Award for the Top Sire of Performance Ponies to Machno Carwyn, a 16 year old bay stallion sired by Carregcoch Bleddyn out of Machno Ceridwen by Tylan Danny.  Owned by Mrs Yvonne Schoch, Machno Carwyn was ridden by the family Schoch's children Faye and Jordan and bred in Wales by Meirion Jones who collected the award. 


Machno Carwyn is quite simply the best show jumping pony stallion in Europe, possibly in the world!  Since the beginning of his career in 1997, Carwyn has been placed more than 220 times in official competitions; approximately 140 times internationally and 50 times at grand prix - winning no less than 7.

He is the only pony stallion ever to have won a gold medal at the European Show Jumping Championships, and he has done this twice!  He has also won the Swiss National Championships 4 times and has numerous highly successful progeny.  His sire, Carregcoch Bleddyn, himself won this award in 2005, is Elite graded by the SPSS and has top performing progeny in all three disciplines.

This photo is where the colts and geldings live with Mount Tryfan in the background and the Glyder range behind. Growing up on this rugged terrain; ensures surefooted ponies with that difficult to find 5th leg!
