Meet the Horses:
Mr Big is sponsored by Tina Milan, Maureen and Mike for Jamie and Brenda.
Bunty is a total legend! He’s a Norwegian Fjord Horse, which means that his distinctive markings will be familiar to fans of Disney’s Frozen. At 13.1Hh, he’s built like a miniature tank: he’ll really look after a nervous rider, but loves the chance to show off his skills and pace when given the chance. He’s a wonderful dressage pony, and has won rosettes at RDA Regional and National level.
Bunty is Sponsored by Jack and Jill Pre-School, JuMelia Ltd and B&W Equine Failand.
15.2Hh black Bertie, who is one of our younger horses, is a real attention seeker in the stable. He loves to bang things around in there and throws his bowl out when it’s empty. Under the saddle, he’s good as gold and will work hard for you.
Bertie is sponsored by Emil Pawlak
Charlie, who stands at 14.2Hh, has a really distinctive face. He’s piebald, with one blue eye. He’s such a gentle pony: super for beginners.
Charlie is sponsored in memory of Norman
Cheeky Chappy Choco is a piebald of 14.1Hh. He’s great fun to be around with a real sense of humour. He’s an adventurous eater and loves nothing more than a bit of wild food foraging on a hack.
Choco is sponsored by Rebecca White and Joshua Rendall
Hope is a 15.3Hh Skewbald. With some good blood in her breeding, she’s a real lady. People who ride Hope regularly are fiercely loyal to her. Once you learn how to push her buttons, she’ll work really well for you.
Hope is sponsored by Beatrice Clarke
Jim is a perfect first pony. At 13.2Hh, skewbald with blue eyes, he really is as good as he looks. He’s a terrific all rounder. He may be a little bit magic, which might explain the slight resemblance to an elf.
Jim is sponsored by Lucas Boyle
Maddie is a new addition to the stable, who loves a fuss and cuddle. You know when she’s hungry as you can hear her kicking her door all down the yard. At 13.2Hh she’s the perfect size for our younger riders.
Maddie is sponsored by Betty Still
Spike stands at 13 Hh and is the most distinctive of our grey ponies, with his single black ear. He looks like a cutie, which makes you want to cuddle him, but actually, he doesn’t like to be crowded by people. Once under the saddle, he’s an excellent pony for beginners.
Spike is sponsored by Christine Janis
One of the Fantastic Four little greys; at 13.1Hh Tictac is extremely reliable with beginners. He comes into his own when we’re assessing new riders as he is really caring and patient with less confident children.
Tic Tac is sponsored by TTC Group UK LTD
Lucky is looking for sponsorship.
Frankie stands at 12.3Hh and is a great fun ride for confident children. Like so many of our little grey ponies, he’s an absolute doll with beginners, too.
Frankie is sponsored by Tina Milan, Maureen and Mike for Jamie and Brenda
Baby is a 14Hh Strawberry roan gelding,
Despite being new to the team, Baby is already a favourite amongst our riders. He has helped them compete at RDA Regional level in both Dressage and Show Jumping.
Baby is sponsored by Sophie Cormack
Bluey is a 15.1 Piebald gelding. He is new to the stables and is just being introduced to non-disabled lessons. We are hoping to introduce him to RDA very soon.

Robbie is a 15.2 Chestnut gelding. A part of our new team of horses, he is settling in really well to both disabled and non-disabled lessons and is already a firm favourite amongst the riders.

Gracie is a 15.2 Skewbald mare. She is new to the stables and just being introduced to non-disabled lessons, but she has a very kind and gentle temperament and we think she will make a lovely addition to our RDA team.

Tom has the distinction of being the cleanest horse on the yard! He does not like making a mess. He is a great confidence giver and is enjoyed by beginner and advanced riders alike.
