Substance, Style, Strength, Superior Disposition

Quartz of Croila is one of only a handful of Highland stallions in the U.S. licensed for breeding by the U.K. Highland Pony Society. He was bred by the Croila stud, one of the oldest and most respected stud farms in Scotland, and his pedigree contains the lineage of champions. Imported to the USA as a yearling, he has proven himself as a sire of both partbred and purebred Highlands. He has passed on the dun dilute gene to all his foals, even from non dilute mares.

Quartz is a lovely mover with lots of bone and excellent conformation. Born in 1996, by Kyle of Croila out of Guanach of Croila. He stands 14 Hands tall, and is a beautiful silvery shade of dun (known as grulla in the US, mouse dun in the UK). He has the famous Highland disposition; extremely calm and gentle, and loves people.
Highlands cross well with other breeds, both horse and pony. Thoroughbred, Arabian, and Welsh are especially popular crosses. Highland crosses can be found competing sucessfully in eventing, dressage, show jumping, and driving. Highlands are renowned for their kind and cooperative dispositions. Because this trait seems to be readily inherited by their offspring, Highland cross horses and ponies make wonderful family mounts.

All Quartz's foals, both purebred and crossbred, are eligible for for registration with the Highland Pony Society in Scotland and the Scottish Highland Pony Society of North America.


Quartz of Croila stands at stud to a limited number of outside mares, by private treaty. Custom breedings to our own mares are also available with an in-utero purchase contract (live foal guarantee included).
