Welcome to Merrie Stud

We are still going strong after more than sixty years of breeding New Forest ponies. Our current ponies can all be traced back to the well known stallions after WW2. Goodenough, Brookside David, Denny Danny & Knightwood Spitfire.

Please keep visiting to learn more about us and what we can offer.
