Welcome to CorleyOak Shetland Stud ....
We're back! It's been well over a year since the site was updated. The loss of our beloved stallion, Bob, really knocked the stuffing out of us and we pressed the pause button for a while. Then Covid-19 has pressed the pause button again for most of 2020. We're thankful to have had horses and ponies to look after during lockdown, which give us a opportunity to feel "normal" for a while......
Some good news to lift our spirits a bit. We are thrilled to report that "Psycho" - aka Sharptor Delphi (pictured left) is gaining in confidence all the time now. We still have to catch her in a stable but she will now stand to be groomed without even needed to be tied up and she will come for a cuddle - something we feared we'd never see. It has taken 18 months, but she was so fearful there was never going to be an easy fix.
We were heartbroken to report that on 30th December 2018 our beloved stallion, Bob, (pictured below) passed away suddenly. He was born at home and died in the stable he was born in - actually on exactly the same spot. He was only 10 years old. We are still reeling from the shock almost two years later. It's was a tremendous loss.....
Above is our home-bred stallion, Bob. Not only was he beautiful, he also had an amazing temperament, which he passed on to his offspring. He has always passed on the cream gene as well!

Bob stood Reserve Miniature Champion at Fillongley Show on 12th August 2018. We loved him to bits and it will be hard to recover from his loss........

We know where all the home-bred ponies we've sold are or what has happened to them, which is absolutely fantastic.
We are a small stud, located in the village of Corley in Warwickshire. Our aim is to breed miniature shetlands with excellent temperaments, conformation and free movement. We also enjoy showing standard ponies. Due to our small size, the emphasis is on quality rather than quantity!! Every pony has plenty of attention and handling from birth, making them very "user-friendly", well mannered and suitable as a child's pony.
