Coppice Stud highly recommends Natalie Greasley

for the breaking, training and producing of Shetland ponies.

 at NPS Area 17, July 2006

Natalie started riding Shetlands at the age of 10 and was a regular competitor in the Shetland Grand National for Pat Renwick of the Ulverscroft Stud. She qualified for Olympia four years running and was also hugely successful in show classes during the 1990's with ponies such as Claylands Calypso, who qualified for HOYS in 1995 and Brindle Miranda who took the working hunter title at HOYS with Natalie in 1994.





Natalie and Coppice Brigitta at Staffs Country Festival 2010, Brig's first outing after only five weeks with Nat, good as gold, loving every minute and placed third in a very strong Picton class at her first ever show.

Skewbald (bay and white) filly to make 42, born 1 May 2006

A stunning, well-marked filly with a beautiful head and her father's elegant and ground-covering movement.  Broken by Natalie Greasley in summer 2010 and has just done her first show after only five weeks, being placed third in a very strong Picton class at Staffs Country Festival.

Will  make a top ridden pony and should go all the way.

Nat studied for and gained her National Diploma in Horse Studies, Advanced National Certificate in Equine Business Management and NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Horse Studies and then set up her own training facility at Stanton under Bardon in Leicestershire, 5 mins away from M1 Jct 22. She rides and trains a variety of horses and ponies but her speciality lies with training and producing our wonderful British native ponies and Shetlands in particular.


In 2007 Nat has been campaigning the Shetlands Ulverscroft Midnight Ambassador and Ulverscroft Honeycomb, Coppice Topper, Coppice Edwin and Coppice Fanfare, as well as the Exmoor Porridge, having qualified Porridge for HOYS and the NPS Bob Templeton ridden finals 2007 and Topper and Ed in the NPS Picton Novice Finals.  Porridge went on to crown his year at HOYS, taking 9th place in his section.


Nat continues to break and train many of the youngsters from the Ulverscroft Stud (now based in Cumbria) and continues to be instrumental in the success of the ridden ponies from the Coppice Stud.





Another of Nat's great strengths lies in training and motivating young riders who will form the next generation of little jockeys for the smaller ponies.  Her yard attracts a stream of good lead-rein, first ridden and open riders who are keen to get into the show ring for Team Greasley.
