We are honored to have three-time U.S. National Champion Welsh Cob stallion Goldhills Brandysnap residing at Daventry Equestrian. Brandysnap was licensed and fully approved with the Rheinland Pfalz-Saar International (RPSI) in 2012 and Lifetime Approved Oldenburg Verband/Weser-Ems Pony & ISR/Oldenburg (Sport Pony Division) in 2013. He received the highest conformation score ever given to an ISR/Oldenburg pony stallion and his incredibly Stallion Index score of 226.5 points is among the Top 30 highest ISR/Oldenburg stallions (200+ warmbloods & ponies). Brandysnap received his first star for Premium Status for his superior conformation and his second star for successful completing his Sport Test. He is also Lifetime accepted with the German Westphalian Verband. Brandysnap has been DNA tested non-Agouti, which means he cannot produce bay foals when bred to black mares, and will produce 100% black foals when bred to homozygous black mares.


Brandysnap is the epitome of what a Sport Pony stallion should be. He was a WPCSA Legion of Merit winner at the age of four, three time WPCSA National Section D Champion, WPCSA American National Supreme Champion, as well as earning WPCSA points in English and Western Pleasure, Carriage and Pleasure Driving, Ridden Cob, Trail and Hunter, all with an amateur rider and all done in a plain, old snaffle. His outstanding conformation has set him apart from others in the show ring and his willing attitude and expressive movement has proved him successful in performance. Brandysnap has a natural aptitude for piaffe and passage and gorgeous extensions. His athletic ability, eager to please nature and huge heart have made him easy to train in a wide variety of disciplines, winning over the hearts of many at the shows. He has won many Dressage Championships and High Score Awards at Training Level and has been Hunter Champion or Reserve Champion every time out. He was the winner of eight WPCSC Canadian National Awards in 2008 and another eight WPCSC National Awards in 2009!


Goldhills Brandysnap No stranger to the show ring, Brandysnap was undefeated and won nine Supreme Championship at the age of two and was named the WPCSA U.S. National Champion Section D Colt. As a three year old, Brandysnap started his under saddle career, winning the Western Pleasure Championship at the 2006 WPCSA Western Nationals. To date, his halter career includes a total of nineteen Supreme Championships and twenty-one Reserve Supreme Championships, fifty-seven Section C/D Grand Championships and an incredible eighty-five first place ribbons from a total of ninety-five halter classes.

Brandysnap is just beginning his stallion career, with his first outstanding foal, Goldhills Gingersnap winning the 2010 American Western National Welsh Show Reserve Supreme Champion at only two years of age and named the 2010 U.S. National Champion Section D 2 & Under Filly. She was also named the 2013 U.S. National Champion Section D 3 & Over Mare. Brandysnap's son, C.D. Snapdragon, is a two-time U.S. National Champion and now winning at First Level dressage with scores in the high 60's. Brandysnap has an endearing personality and shows incredible charisma and presence in the ring. We look forward to a successful breeding career with this absolutely breathtaking stallion. Let us show you why you need to add a little Brandy to your foal!

+ Pedigree Information


Although Brandysnap was born in the United States, both of his parents were imported from the UK. Brandysnap's sire, *Okeden Taffy LOM/AOE/OD, both an International Supreme Champion and WPCSA US National Champion, has been WPCSA Section D Sire of the Year three years in a row in the United States and WPCSC Overall Sire of the Year two years in a row in Canada. During his performance career, he has been US National Champion in Western Pleasure and also had Championships in English Pleasure and Hunters. His daughter, Goldhills Hanky Panky LOM/AOE, has been a WPCSA U.S. National Halter Champion six years in a row. She is the youngest Pony or Cob to ever win a WPCSA LOM and the first Cob to win a WPCSA AOE. Brandysnap's full brothers, Goldhills British Sterling and Goldhills Butter Rum LOM are also both previous WPCSA U.S. National Champions. Brandysnap's younger sister, Goldhills Baklava, was named the 2008 WPCSA U.S. National Champion 2 & Under C/D Filly in her first year of showing. Paternal half-sister, Goldhills Toffee, was the 2010 WPCSC National Champion Section C/D Mare and is now competing successfully in both the hunter and jumper ring with a junior rider.


Brandysnap's dam, *Okeden Britannia LOM, has produced many successful National Halter and Performance Champions, and herself, won second place at the Royal Welsh. She is sired by *Llanarth True Briton, who is a two-time Royal Welsh winner, and as a four year old, placed second in the Ridden Cob class at the Royal Welsh. Among Britannia's successful offspring are, Goldhills British Sterling, Goldhills Butter Rum LOM and Goldhills Baklava.

    + About Our Shipped Semen Program

    Our goal at Daventry Equestrian is to ensure that you receive the best quality equine semen possible. Semen motility and morphology are checked with a Bausch & Lomb microscope and semen concentration is verified with a Quick Check™ Sperm Counter. We prefer to use INRA 96® extender with Goldhills Brandysnap, which is the gold standard of extenders, and works best with his semen.


    Semen is shipped in a 72 hour Equitainer. Full paperwork, detailing all statistics and semen/extender ratio, is also included with each shipment to ensure that each Mare Owner has all of the information needed to properly inseminate their mare and ensure a successful conception. As a result, Brandysnap has a 100% First Cycle Conception Rate on his shipped semen.


    We collect Monday through Friday. Pre-arranged Saturday and Sunday collections are available for local pick-up only or counter-to-counter WestJet flights within Canada. We would appreciate notification for semen shipments by 3:00 PM MST the night before shipping is needed. While we do ask for advanced notice, we do understand that not all mares read the "breeding handbook" and will do whatever we can if a last minute collection is required. As long as we have been notified of your mare coming into heat, we consider ourselves on call for that week! Our daily cut-off is 7:30 am MST.


    Our Canadian Mare Owners have the choice of using Fed-Ex overnight service or WestJet same day counter-to-counter service to select Canadian airports. We ship via Fed-Ex overnight for all USA destinations.
