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.

Mr Big is sponsored by Tina Milan, Maureen and Mike for Jamie and Brenda.

Bunty

Bunty

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.

Barney

Barney

 

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!

Bertie

Bertie

 

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

Charlie

 

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

Choco

Choco

 

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

Hope

 

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

Jim

 

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

Spike

Spike

 

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.

 Tic Tac

Tictac

 

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 looking for sponsorship

Haribo

hatibo2

Haribo is new to the yard. He is a 14Hh skewbald gelding with a really nice personality (horsonality?).  He has just started his RDA training and will be spending lots of time in the arena with the yard staff to help him get used to the environment.

Harry

An absoluteHarry 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

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.

Lucky

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.

Frankie

Frankie

 

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.
