"Breeding Supreme Winning Ponies"


Buckland River Miniature Pony Stud is located at the base of Mt. Buffalo along the Buckland River in Victoriaís North East High Country. We are a small stud, breeding a few foals each year, aiming to achieve quiet natured ponies that possess good conformation, type and movement. We bred ponies that are able to excel in show ring, performance disciplines including endurance riding and be quiet and sensible enough for small children to handle and ride.


Most of our stock consists of Shetland ponies 8.2hh and under or to a maximum height of 87cm. All ponies are dual registered with the Australian Stud Book Society and the Australian Miniature Pony Society, with the exception of one mare who is registered only with the APSB.


Buckland River Stud is owned by Mel and Dean Williams with the help from their young daughter, Tekka-Lee. With the ponies, we all attend a few shows each year and Tekka-Lee is soon to follow in her mumís footsteps on the endurance riding trails, competing on the ponies in the small 5km that are offered at some rides.


Apart from being home to a pony stud, Buckland River is also home to a small number of endurance horses. An avid endurance rider for many years, Mel currently has one main horse that she campaigning, Sienna Remington. See the endurance page for more details and updates.


Mel, Dean and Tekka-Lee welcome visitors to view their miniature ponies at any time. Please call or email before your visit to make a date and time.
