Machno Carwyn, is the leading show jumping pony stallion of all time - during the 28 years since the beginning of the Pony European Championship - no other stallion has gained a medal, whilst he has two individual Golds - 2000 Hagen, Germany - 2001 Veyjer de la Frontera,Spain.


At only 7 years old, he was 11th in the finals of the individual - his European Championship debut. He was also 4th in the individual final at Lanaken, Belgium 2002 with a 12 year old rider - see picture on left.


He won the Gold medal at the Swiss National Championships no fewer than  four times and one Bronze.  These are highlights of his career with numerous other titles and awards to his name. He placed in 130 top international competitions winning more than 50 and also placed in more than 25 international Grand prix winning 7.


In 2004, at the age of 12, sadly this came to a premature end due to eye injury, should this genius have continued, just imagine the feathers in his cap!

Now sold to the famous Wyken stud, she continued her winning ways as a yearling, gaining many in-hand championships. All this is a stop gap before being produced under saddle.
