is situated in South West Wales, approximately eight miles
The farm is situated above the castle town of Kidwelly, settled in 1115, looking towards the Gower peninsula.
The National Botanic Garden of Wales, Dylan Thomas’ boathouse at Laugharne and Pembrey Country Park are all close at hand for those not wanting to talk ponies; there is also a variety of good accommodation nearby.
Our policy at Heniarth is to limit the numbers that we can easily accommodate within our 26 acres of available grazing. The majority of the stock winter indoors in yards, with foaling closely supervised with the aid of CCTV if needed. Each foal is well handled, wormed and trimmed, with youngsters thought to make good ridden prospects being given the opportunity to grow on here until three years old, though generally seem to be snapped up before they reach that age! All of our show ponies are produced from home, including the ridden ones in the past, though lately we have been lucky enough to utilise the services of some capable individuals. With breeding both Sections A & B our numbers have to be strictly limited with eight foals being the maximum number foaled each season.
