Hello, my name is Melanie and I run The Lewingale
Miniature Horse Stud.
It began in 1993, when we purchased our first mini “Lewingale
Peanuts”. We fell in love with him at Hay Horse Sale
and bought him for my daughter Rebecca’s birthday.
We then joined The British Miniature Horse Society and The
International Miniature Horse & Pony Society. Everyone
we met said how addictive they are and that we'd soon have
loads of them - "what rubbish," we thought, "we
may have one more to keep him company but that would be
it!". We now own over 20 and they are shown all over
the country. The
first year of showing was a great success with my daughter
and Peanuts having their picture in The Times newspaper
and appearing on local television. What stardom in such
a short time! From then on it was an ever increasing circle
of more & more minis. We have won many championships
including titles such as: Mare Of The Year 1998; Miniature
Shetland Of The Year 1999; Miniature Foal of Britain 2001;
Miniature Coloured Of The Year 2002. We also own 3 horses
who have been graded as Elite Register ‘A’ National
Show horse in Miniature.
We now pride ourselves on breeding top show
quality foals from my two stunning stallions “Looking
Glass Gorgeous” - a pure bred Falabella, and “Honey Brook Alfie” - who is pure
AMHA bloodlines and BMHS Registered
When I was a child my lifetime dream was to compete at The Horse of The Year show, well I have now lived that dream and with horses I have bred.
