By Al Samer (Redouts Choice) , out of Causeway (Pickniker).
She is related to nine Olympic Jumpers as well as Sydney Royal Supreme Champion Thoroughbred River Tan.

education an eventer. She had just 6 race starts for 3 placings.

August 2013

Our first five foals of the season arrived in absolutely appalling weather, so our stables turned into a maternity ward for a short period of time! I cannot reiterate enough how pleased I am with the three fillies from last season by my beautiful young stallion 'Nilton Port Merrion' and it is continuing this season - they are just beautiful!

August 1st was a special celebration for Nattai Eirian (my late Mum's favourite) as she turned 30 years old. She is still in fine fettle, although rugged she is VERY woolly! Eirian was a super show mare and is by Coed Coch Bari (imp) out of the Coed Coch Proffwyd (imp) mare Nattai Pioden. She did enjoy her diced carrots!

Nilton Zizou (pictured at right) has been an absolute star through the winter with his dressage thanks to Claire Redman. Below are the results - all official competitions:

Albury (May): 1st Novice 2D score 68.286% - won Pony & overall, beating all the horses/warmbloods!
Werribee (May): 2rd Novice 2A score 68.125%; 1st Novice 2B.
Werribee (June): He won both Novice tests.

Claire is loooking forward to starting in Zizou in Elementary tests next season.

NATTAI CREAM OF EPPYNT 11 - 9 - 1986    ------      21 - 1  - 2013

It is with very great sadness that I try to write this tribute to "Yumsie"; who was THE MOST SPECIAL pony, not only because of his beauty, or the ribbons he won, or his absolutely outstanding movement; but he had an unbelievable temprement.  He absolutely loved to show off, whether it be in the show ring or at home when visitors arrived. I am sure he was the horsey version of a Rhodes Scholar!  He was quite the easiest pony I have ever broken in, & by far the nicest small pony I have ever ridden. He had the stride & cadence of a 16 hander.
Those that have been lucky enough to own his progeny all comment on how quiet they are and the way in which they float over the ground.
This is of course because of his beautiful bloodlines. He being bye Coed Coch Bari (imp.), & out of the super moving  Nattai Summertime, by the super moving  & very special Nattai Apollo; all champions in their own right.
Nattai Cream of Eppynt was a multi supreme champion both led & ridden; including Melbourne & Sydney Royals, Victorian All Welsh as well as Ridden Pony of the Year. He started his ridden career as a 3 y.o. with a champion ridden welsh exhibit (also sup. led welsh) , & his last outing was as an 18 y.o. to accompany  a youngster at her first show, & he won yet another Champion. On the way to the ring a young girl was heard to say to her Mother , " gosh, look at that sexy stallion"! 
He is the sire of many champions; including  Nilton Showdown, Myfanwy, Priscilla, Panache,Maquette, Goldfinch, Goldlight, & Port Merrion. Also Nattai Ceulan, Downsbury Llew Llwyd, Coufel Remington & Aureate Sheen (harness). He also has many, many grandchildren continuing the success, to name a few: Nilton Starcraft, Sky Cloud, Zizou, Macpherson, Minerva, Jenny Wren,Matilda, Zinedine, Minuette, Mynton, Maytime, Kunat Jay Jay & at this years Queensland All Welsh , his great granddaughter  Arawel Lodge Matilda (out of Nilton Minuette) , won the Supreme Foal of Show.
He was in his mind , the boss here. He was not a happy boy when the first of the Nattai stallions arrived. He was most indignant when I put Nattai Martyn in a small paddock across a rather wide laneway, from him.  I still remember his roaring & kicking of his gate, the only time he was ever angry!!!
He is laid to rest with his two most special girlfriends, Nattai Model & Nilton Soccer (D). He didn't mind covering bigger mares, & was also used to cover a few thoroughbreds.
Model also left on the 21st January, but five years prior.
He was a big part of my life, from the time that I bought him as a weanling from my mother , to put over my Nattai Shon fillies , & the original 3 mares.  We miss you terribly "Yumsie",  but I consider myself lucky to have so many of your beautiful progeny, to continue the stud.

R.I.P. BEAUTIFUL MAN

December 2012 :: End of Year Wrap!

New Stallion at Nilton Stud

It's with great pleasure I introduce Nilton Stud's new acquisition - Welsh Pony stallion Bamborough Academy. Thanks must go to Bamborough Stud for breeding such a beautiful pony and to Tina and Ardrian Wells (Bangor Stud) for allowing me the privilege of purchasing Academy. Bamborough Academy is a full brother to the well known multi-champion Bamborough Paramount, and is the sire of the well performed Bangor Hector.

Show News

Three ponies were taken to the 2012 Victorian All Welsh Show and they placed in most of their classes.

Nilton Zizou won his Led Show Hunter 12-13hh for the second year running. He also placed 3rd in his Child's Pony class and 5th in his Ridden Show Hunter class.

Nilton Jenny Wren won her Led Welsh Hunter class from a huge number of entries, needless to say this was a big thrill! She also placed 3rd in her Child's Pony class.

Nilton Minerva (this being her last show as she's now in foal to Nattai Madog) placed in several classes.

Minerva's half brother by Nattai Madog, Nilton Macpherson won his Novice Working Hunter - from a class of 28 ponies! Macpherson is owned by Kiuna Park Stud and was beautifully ridden by their eldest daughter Taylah Lee, who also rode Zizou for me. Macca placed in all of his ridden classes.

Nattai Madog's son Flowerdale Timothy completed the 'clean sweep'! He was sashed Champion Led Welsh Mountain Pony Gelding at the NSW, SA,& Vic All Welsh Shows. He was shown beautifully by Mark Brown of Indi Welsh Stud.

The Stud had a super Spring showing season with Zizou, Minerva, Jenny Wren and 2yo Nilton Swallow (Nilton Madison x Nattai Skylark). Swallow attended three shows for a Supreme and two Champions.

Nilton Rhiannon placed 2nd in a strong 3yo WMP Filly class at the NSW All Welsh for Stenbury Park Stud. Holly was sashed Supreme Welsh In Hand at the Moss Vale Pony Classic, under UK judge Andrew Phillips.

Rhiannon's half sister Nilton Remembrance (Ruby) won the Welsh Leading Rein at the WA All Welsh for Midge Boag of Canterbury Welsh Stud.

Nilton Starcraft (3yo colt by Nilton Showdown x Nilton Star) was sashed Reserve Champion Colt at the SA All Welsh for Shanamon Stud. Since then he's done three more shows for three Supreme Welsh Exhibit sashes!

Nilton Lord Greylight continues on his winning form for Mick Eylward and Cherie Walliss in SA. They are to collect Nilton Siskin shortly - 1yo palomino filly by Nilton Madison x Nattai Skylark. I wish them the best of luck with her showing and eventual breeding career.

Nilton Zizou won his Intermediate and Open Show Hunter classes and came away with Reserve Champion Show Hunter Pony. He also place third in the Novice Dressage with a wonderful score of 80%.

Gundagai Agricultural Show

Due to the very inclement weather, many of the local shows had been cancelled. As Tara Corrish had spent so much time educating two lovely young geldings we decided to travel the two & a quarter hours to give the boys their first outing.

Nilton Zizou (Synod Aristocrat x Nilton Maradonna) was shown as an Open Show Hunter. We were delighted by the way he settled after being a little overawed by the 12 ponies around him in the Novice class. He finished the day being 2nd in the Intermediate Small Show Hunter class and again 2nd in his Open to the eventual Champion. He has the most cadenced trot and canter, so I look forward to a long career - hopefully with my Grand Daughters riding him in the not too distant future.

Nilton Sanchez (Nattai Madog x Nilton Sanchia) gained a 2nd place in his Novice Saddle Pony under 14hh class and a third in his Open Saddle Pony under 121hh. A great educational day.

Christmas 2010

I received the most beautiful Christmas card from the Marshall Family (Foxglove Stud - Western Australia) of Nilton Superstar's (Nattai Madog x Nilton Starshine) first foal. She is named Foxglove Daffodil and is by Shalida Park Gallant (by Nattai Salsbri). Quite the cutest face! Nilton Superstar was a lovely filly but as I have her full sister, two half sisters and her half brother Nilton Showdown, I had to make the heartbreaking decision to sell her. Dianne and Andrew also purchased a weanling colt Nilton Supreme (Nattai Madog x Nilton Supanova) who is a half sister to Superstar. The ponies were purchased at the same time so were able to make the long journey across the Nullabor together. It is so lovely to recieve news of them both and to know that they are in such a wonderful home.
