Carrwood is a small private stud of Welsh Section B Ponies located in Cheshire in the Peak District National Park.  Carrwood was established in 1980 with the purchase of Morwyn Nicotiana who was a great winner for us.

Most of the ponies in the stud today are descended from Lemonshill Alarch. Alarch won the Royal Welsh Female Championship and WPCS Gold Medal for our stud in 1997 and her descendants have been shown with much success by Carrwood.
