Dyffryngwy Siwan was purchased by Rachel Davies at the 2015 Brightwells Cob Sales and Rachel has done a fantastic job of bringing this young mare on over the winter and season of 2016. The pair have had a very successful novice season winning championships and supremes in hand and ridden. Well done Rachel & “Pwds”
