started breeding Exmoor's in 1978 and our resident Exmoor
Stallion is Blackthorn Sea Poacher (above). My former stallion,
Siskin (pictured top right), who was a prolific winner in-hand
and under saddle unfortunately died suddenly in 2007. He
had Qualified for HOYS Breeders In-hand Championship 3 times,
also qualifying for HOYS ridden & WHP
and Olympia. Siskin sired many show ring winners.
Jenny Wren by Siskin out of Blackthorn Petroc took
the Supreme Championship in the NPS Baileys Mountain & Moorland
Pony of the Year at Olympia at the end of December
2003. Jenny Wren was ridden by Katy Marriott and
is owned by Miss K Marriott, Mrs M Burnett and was
bred by Mrs M Burnett.
Stowbrook Jenny Wren and Stowbrook Snipe also by Siskin
are following in their fathers' footsteps being in
the prizes at HOYS.
