Silver Graded Performance Pony 2018

The Elite New Forest Pony of the Year 2017

The New Forest Performance Pony of the Year 2016

Highfox Faith

Bred, owned and ridden by Philippa Hadwen

Highfox ponies combine the best of both Forest and Stud bloodlines and we focus on breeding ponies that are true to type, demonstrate native hardiness and have excellent temperaments. We breed ponies across the height range 122 cm - 148 cm, suitable for both children and adults, but we have a particular interest in the smaller New Forest ponies (not exceeding 128 cm) suitable for lead rein, first ridden and nursery stakes and in the mid height range of 138 cm.

Our home bred, home produced ponies are proven winners in the show ring, both at home and abroad (see competitions and showing page). They are all round performers and have excelled across  a range of disciplines including dressage, WHP, ridden, in-hand, lead rein, first ridden, showjumping, driving, endurance, even Prince Philip Cup games and pony racing!

Just a Few of our ponies are featured below.
