For this you would receive a framed certificate, a visit to the Centre where you would receive a tour and have a go on the horse simulator, your name would be placed on our website (with a link to website), a horse shoe plaque and VIP pass to one of our events. If you are interested in Diamond Sponsorship you can contact Louise Leigh on 0117 9590266 for a complete breakdown of how your money will be spent.

  • Platinum: £1,000

Meet the Horses:

Mr Big

Mr Big
Big by name… but only 13.2Hh so pretty small by nature. He’s a beautiful palomino with the best eyes on the yard. One of our newer ponies, he’s really settling in well and is keen to work hard for his rider.  Excellent on the lead rein he is lovely for new or nervous riders, and is fitting right in.

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




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.

Ash is new to the Centre and already a firm favourite among RDA and BHR riders alike.  At 15.3Hh he is one of our larger members.  He likes nothing better than lazing about snoozing in his bed.

Ash is sponsored by The BAWA Club and Jenny Phelps




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.

Cricket is a baby pony, at only just 5 years old! He is already working in RDA and BHR lessons and is a firm favourite amongst our riders.

Cricket 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 Rory Podd


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

 Tic Tac



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 Alex Fernandez West


marleyMarley is new to the Centre and at 15Hh he is a very promising prospect. He is a Roan cob x gelding, and a very messy eater, throwing his hay all over the stable every time he has dinner! He is currently on a diet whilst we try and get him fit and ready to join our RDA programme.

luckyLucky 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.


Lucky is looking for sponsorship.


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.

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.

Tom is sponsored by Jenny Armstrong and Helm Construction.
