Menai Thomas

Menai Christopher
I'm still overwhelmed and I get very emotional after a most fantastic Royal Welsh for us as a family. It started with a Bang.

Menai Thomas and Menai Christopher 1st and 2nd in the C ridden. It was very nearly a 1st, 2nd and 3rd for Menai ponies having taken the 3 top spots on the pull in. Poor Menai Celtic Warrior was dropped from 3rd after changing legs on the gallop. Well done Fiona for bringing Christopher back on Thursday to win yet another HOYS qualifier, Keep it up!!

Menai Mary-Jo
 Menai Viceroy

Menai Curiosa 
Tuesday our Section A Menai Mary-Jo was 3rd in the senior brood mare class and our yearling C colt Menai Viceroy taking the 5th spot. The very dependable Menai Curiosa won the 3 yr. old Section C filly class and was Reserve Young stock champion. She came back on Thursday to stand reserve female champion for the second year running.

Imperial at HOYS 2007

Imperial at Lampeter Stallion Show 2010
Imperial at Royal Welsh 2014
Wednesday was a very special day. Elin Harries and Menai Silver Tanya was standing 3rd in a huge lead-rein class in the Horse Ring. Well done Elin!! Our very special boy Menai Sparkling Imperial rose to the occasion to win the Senior Cob stallion class. This was his last show ring appearance, having been the M & M Supreme ridden Champion at HOYS in 2007, Supreme Champion in hand at the Lampeter stallion Show in 2010 and finally a red rosette and the Reserve Male Champion at the Royal Welsh. He was upstaged by the son of Menai Sparkling Magic with the other son of Sparkling Magic being Champion Young stock and stood second reserve for the Male title.

Menai Sparkling Lady

I got quite emotional when I realised that Menai Sparkling Lady that I showed to win her class here as a yearling , 2 and 3 yr old some 30 years ago, was the mother of Imperial, grand mother of the male champion and both grand mother and great grand mother of the young stock champion.

I would like to thank all concerned that made this Royal Welsh a very special one for Menai Welsh Ponies and Cobs, and for all your lovely comments.
