Cwrtycapel Copper's Image

Cwrtycapel Copper's Image is a working stallion.  He was shown in hand as a youngster and gained Supreme Champions, Champions, Reserves and many placings too numerous to mention in WPBR, Hunter and Sports Horse classes.  He has also been successful in ridden classes, has won and been placed with good scores in dressage including competing in pairs dressage, with a mare, gaining a first place.


Charlie has also been show jumping, winning several clear rounds up to 100cm and he has also been cross country.  He is now being competed by a 13 year old girl and his owner has high hopes for them as a combination.


Offspring/Breeding Advice

Charlie has an excellent temperament which he is passing on to his progeny, who are tall elegant foals, with size, quality and substance to perform in any discipline. He is very kind to his mares, and would cross well with any type any size mare.


Cwrtycapel Copper's Image's oldest progeny were born in 2013.  They have done well in-hand, gaining overall in-hand Championships at several shows.


In 2019, Cwrtycapel Coppers Image had a good crop of foals again with more expected in 2020. One of his coloured colts, Bodernog Prince of Thieves, gained a many Championships and Reserve Supreme at the Anglesey Winter Fair and also a first at The Royal Welsh Winter Fair (RWWF). A filly, Abermenai Lilly, was Champion at Anglesey Winter Fair and placed at the RWWF. A home bred filly, on her first outing in 2019, did not put a foot wrong to win 5 1st places, be In-hand Champion & Reserve Supreme of the show against a HOYS pony. Then the dreaded equine flu came and finished our showing season, such a shame.
