Located at Hartpury in Gloucestershire on prime stock rearing land, Tweenhills covers approximately 750 acres of the finest English pasture with its paddocks and surrounding farms afforded natural shelter by ancient hedgerows and magnificent oak trees.
The home to Qatar Racing stallions, as well as the majority of the operation’s band of broodmares and young stock, Tweenhills has established a reputation as an outstanding stallion station and farm.
Tweenhills has long been regarded as one of the finest stock farms in the surrounding Ledbury country and since 1995, under the management of David Redvers, the farm’s focus has been Thoroughbreds but its history of breeding and raising stock goes back much further.
Much of the land has been in David’s family for over 100 years and his grandmother, Nell Pennell, was a renowned breeder of ponies and an award-winning herd of Guernsey cattle.
Nell Pennell bred dozens of champion ponies, however, it is the world famous Bwlch prefixed riding ponies that she is best known for and is perhaps her greatest legacy, in particular the hugely influential sire Bwlch Valentino, himself foaled at Tweenhills. An indication of the importance of her role in developing the breed was her dual appointment as President of the Welsh Pony and Cob Society (WPCS) in 1937-38 and again in 1954-55.
CLA members will have a stallion show and you will see the vet at work scanning mares along with a general tour of the stud. This event is likely to book out very quickly.
