Fascinated by the charisma of the Welsh Ponies my father Frank Glaser sen decided to import his first Section B Pony from Wales in 1990. It was Ardgrange Ffion, a two-year-old filly by Ardgrange Cristalle out of Ardgrange Deryth by Ardgrange Dihafel.
After this import it doesn't take much time until the six-year-old mare Ostara caught his attention. She was a nice grey mare with an excellent pedigree. Father was the stallion Downland Chorister, who was bought and imported to Germany by Giglberg Stud and Wolfstein Stud. Ostara's dam was Coed Coch Odette, a mare out of Margaret Brodrick's breeding, who was the owner of the most famous stud ever.
After importing two ponies in a short period of time the decision to establish an own stud was made. Named after the Kaiserbach, a small stream which flows in eastern direction next to our stud, my father together with my grandfather Paul Glaser founded it in 1990.
Consequently the desire for own stallions arised. Looking for them the first acquaintances with Dutch Breeders were made. After visiting several studs the two stallions Cottrell Pendragon and Amanda's Edwin caught my father's attention in 1992.
Pendragon, a son of Rotherwood State Occasion out of Weston Moll Flanders, was owned this time by Family Morren of Woldberg Stud, where we later also bought the mare Woldberg's Aria (The Hale Vermillion x Goldberg's Glory), who was in foal to him.
Amanda's Edwin, who was out of Mr Wolf's breeding, was champion at the Dutch Stallion Grading in 1992 among the three-year-old stallions of Section B. He is by Carolinas Red Ribbon out of the mare Home T'Ranch Esmeralda by Pendock Plato.
More ponies from studs like Aganza, Llangeitho and Millcroft were imported in the following years.
It didn't take much time until we reached the first showing successes. In 1993 the mare Ostara won the first title for the Kaiserbach Stud as she was Overall Champion of Section B and Reserve Overall Supreme Champion at the IG Wesh Show in Hesse. Her national successes last through the 90s and so she left our stud as a championesse in 1999. Edwin also was successful at this time, he was several times Overall Champion of Section B and Overall Supreme Champion and twice he won the title of the Reserve National Champion Stallion of Section B.
After Cottrell Pendragon and Amanda's Edwin the two stallions T' Hogeland's Ferdinand (Woldberg's Jeroen x Woldberg's Sopraan) and Zwaluwenburg's Benjamin (Shamrock Secret Design x Ysselvliedt's Black Tulip) joined our stud in 1994 and so our four stud stallions were completed. During a visit at Henk Zoet of the Zwaluwenburg Stud the two four-year-old stallions made lasting impressions.
After Cottrell Pendragon left our stud in May 2012 as the last of our four former stud stallions, we decided to maintain the Cottrell bloodline and imported the two stallions Thistledown Lawrence of Arabia and Cottrell Arnold. Lawrence, a son of the Royal Welsh Champion Paddock Sahara is out of Cottrell Lara, who is by the Royal Welsh Champion Cwrtycadno Cadfridog. Arnold is a descendent of the deceased Cwrtycadno Cadfridog and the dam Cottrell Amethyst, who is a daughter of the legendary stallion Rotherwood State Occasion.
In the following years Reylem Sunflower (Cwrtycadno Cadfridog x Cottrell Sunflower), Eyarth Jodette (Rhoson Shem x Eyarth Ophelia) and the two full sisters Paddock Tiger Lily and Paddock Savannah (Paddock Rio x Paddock Priscilla) complemented even our stud mares. Our current breeding combines with Cottrell, Eyarth and Paddock three of the best bloodlines of Section B and refers especially to the stallions Rotherwood State Occasion, Cwrtycadno Cadfridog, Eyarth Celebration and Paddock Camargue.
Our most successful homebred mare is Kaiserbach's Daisy by Amanda's Edwin out of the mare Millcroft Daydream (Brockwell Prince Charming x Millcroft Dipity). The grey mare was born in 2001 and her qualities convinced a lot of judges. She was 1x Reserve Foal Champion, 5x Overall Champion of Section B, 2x Reserve Overall Champion of Section B, 4x Overall Supreme Champion and 1x Champion of Section B Cup.
Kaiserbach Ponies were sold to France, Denmark, Russia, Austria and Switzerland.
Our aim is the breeding of quality Welsh Ponies of Section B, that convince with type, movement and a lovely character. Successes in several sectors confirm our breeding and so we keep our targets.
