Rosehaven Merlin, a Section B Welsh pony, went to his first Welsh show of the year this past weekend. Being a two year old, he just shows in hand at the walk and trot. Classes at Welsh breed shows are divided by section and then by sex and age.
Geldings compete in their own separate division and his class was for Section B geldings two and under. Winning blues under both judges, he then went into the championship to compete against the older Section B geldings. Merlin was champion under both judges, even beating his older brother, Rosehaven Foxglove.
The champions and reserves go back into the ring one more time to compete for Supreme Gelding and little Merlin won again under both judges! That's when he won the flower garlands and the pretty horse-head shaped bouquet of flowers.
Merlin was a good boy at the show and handled the attention and getting flowers like a pro. For this show he wore the Smith Worthington Signature Bridle, one of our smallest bridles, along with a 4" British Dee Ring Snaffle.
A cold snap following a snow storm this past week was some of the worst winter weather we've experienced in Maryland so far this year. And on one of the coldest nights, a little filly decided it was her time to be born. After drying her off she was still shivering even though she was [...]

Hi! It's me, Posey. I'm a 9 month old Welsh Section B filly and I just got my first turnout! My full name is Rosehaven Pocketful of Posies but everybody calls me Posey. It got really cold and rainy and there was even some white stuff mixed in. So my owner put a new Rhino [...]
Two Rosehaven ponies, Rain Belle and Minuet, are heading south for warmer weather! They're lucky to be missing the frigid, windy conditions that have descended upon Maryland. They both have 5" pony standing bandages over Wilkers pillow wraps - a very traditional and safe way to wrap your ponies legs for traveling. [...]
We recently received this wonderful photo from one of our customers. Six year old Emilia Richard, aboard Champlain's Irish Cream, is showing in her first CHJA Medal Finals held at the Fairfield County Hunt Club in Wetport, CT, August 19 - 21, 2016. What a team they are! Emi probably has many years of riding [...]
Rosehaven Merlin went to his first hunter breeding show last weekend. He's a Welsh Section B yearling and even though he went to one Welsh show this summmer, this was quite a new experience for him! He had a trailer ride, a new stall and got to see lots of horses and ponies. His [...]
We love having visitors to our farm and so do the young ponies! There's just something magnetic about foals and kids. I guess it's that the foals are happy to have someone 'their size'. Recently, KiMani and Victoria, local pony riders, came for a visit and were thrilled to go in the paddock and visit [...]
We love hearing back from our customers, especially when they send pictures! Here's an example of what we receive - obviously one happy kid and one proud dad. This is what makes our day - that smile says it all!
