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 and JuMelia Ltd.
Dark brown Barney is a great all rounder, standing at 14.3Hh. He’s a quiet chap who’s never happier than hanging out with his bestie, Mr Big, and a big bag of hay. Yum!

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
14.3Hh Bay Daymo is a pocket rocket. He’s not big, but he’s one of our most fun horses for hacking. He’s very well-behaved, but when you want to go, he can really switch it on.
Daymo is sponsored by Alice Whittlestone
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 Maria Brennan and Lucas Boyle
Leaf is a beautiful bay at 16Hh. He is an ex-eventer, which means he loves competitions. He’s really gentle and looks after his riders beautifully but he’s very active under the saddle, and really enjoys competing in RDA dressage.
Leaf is Sponsored by Bristol Grammar School
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.

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.

An absolute dream on the lead rein, at 13.2Hh and with a really handsome face, this little grey is one of the friendliest ponies in our stable and absolutely perfect for beginners. Off the lead rein, he’s great for experienced riders as he loves to show off his speed when he’s given the chance.
Harry is looking for sponsorship
Marley is looking for sponsorship
Oscar is the biggest of our skewbalds, standing at 16Hh. He is a gentle giant, though and will really look after his rider. Blessed with a lovely temperament, he is perhaps not equally blessed with brains, but we won’t hold it against him as he is such a great horse for less confident riders.
Oscar is looking for sponsorship
Lucky is a new pony to the stables. At 14Hh she is one of the smaller skewbalds, with very pretty facial markings. She is currently undergoing training in order to be able to join RDA lessons, and we hope to see her in the arena very soon.

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.
