BreedingOpus 72

From small beginnings the Pendlebury's have expanded their stud to consist of several mares from leading bloodlines including the famous bullfighter Opus 72 and John Whittakers showjumper Novilheiro. Now also the home of the only purebred Veiga stallion in the UK, Uivador Da Broa. His quality was recognised at the International Festival of the Lusitano Horse 2008 winning Champion Male and Champion of Champions at the Lusitano Breed Society GB Show in 2009. Several of his progeny have gone on to win youngstock and partbred championships showing the quality of the breeding at Pen Llyn.
