Gwrthafarn Commander was born in 1981. He is by Twyford Druid, and out of Gwrthafarn Wendy by Cippyn Red Flyer.
He is owned by the Rotherdale Stud.
"Commander was purchased in 1982 as a yearling, and has run out with mares since he was a two year old. He was ridden at home as a young horse, and hunted a little, but never shown, as we preferred him to run out with his mares. This horse has proved to be a wonderful sire of brood mares, passing on both his conformation and his wonderful temperament. Three of our senior mares are his daughters."
