Annwood Stud


Annwood Stud  breeds top quality black Shetland ponies from carefully selected bloodlines, paying particular attention to good temperament, conformation and action.


Over the last 50 years, many Annwood Shetlands have achieved great success in ridden, driven and in-hand classes, as well as being wonderful family ponies.


The Annwood Stud was founded in 1964 by Joan and Derek O’Brien, in Sussex.  It has been re-established in Herefordshire and is now being run by their daughter and grand-daughter, Mary and Lucinda Davenport. We are extremely fortunate that Joan is still involved with the Stud.
