Meet the Ponies

We feel it is important for our horses that there work load is varied and the hours they work are regulated. Therefore, we ensure that our horses do a variety of work within our ménage, indoor school, trekking tracks and cross country course to ensure they do not become sour and bored. A happy horse is a happy rider.

All our horses are safe to hack out on the roads and go out on a regular basis. With that said, here are the boys, we can always find a horse to suit you whether you are a novice or experienced rider, short or tall light or heavy we probably have the right horse or pony for you, the only constraints are that our riders are 4 years old or over and under 14½ stone.

BUBBLES

11h1 9 yr old grey welsh section A gelding.  Bubbles came to us in summer 2017 after he was sadly outgrown by his previous rider.  Bubbles was used a lead rein pony for hunting and Pony Club and has a springy walk and a 'can do' attitude.  Although Bubbles was a lead rein pony with have put young experienced riders on him without a lead rein and he is fab.  He really enjoys a good canter and jumping.  He is great in the stable and loves a cuddle over the door.

ROCKY

Rocky

12hh 20 yr old Welsh Section A grey gelding. Rocky was bought from a lady down the road that breeds Welsh Section A ponies for in-hand showing as her hobby. Rocky competed at county level in-hand showing classes until the age of 5, then we bought him and he’s worked in the riding school since. He mainly does lead rein lessons and is a real confidence giver, although he does love the more experienced rider as he loves a good gallop and has a huge jump which he likes to show off. He has a lovely temperament and is good in the stable so is a popular choice on Pony Days.

SPARKY

Sparky

12h2” 23 year old grey gelding. Sparky is our most popular small pony. If a pony could be remote controlled that is Sparky. He is the original confidence giver and cannot be faulted in anyway. Unsurprisingly he has a waiting list and a huge following of small children.

He is a top lead rein pony and is exceptional off the lead. He has competed at local shows with ourselves with great results and is always in the rosettes. He is the most popular choice on Pony Days being booked weeks in advance and has exceptional manners to boot.

MAGIC - Magi moo

11h2” 18 year old Welsh Section A grey gelding. Not the best looking pony in the World but 110% trustworthy with impeccable manners in the stable and is an exceptionally good lead rein pony with a huge jump for the older more experienced children.

He has been competing at local shows with my daughter since she was two years old and is fantastic at gymkhana and handy pony, winning loads of rosettes, a testament to how good Magic is.

BENJI

12h2 10 yr old welsh section B liver chestnut gelding.  Benji came to us in the summer of 2017 he belongs to a dear friend of mine and has come to live with us as he currently has no rider and was bored at home in the field.  He has turned his hoof to most things including showing and jumping and appears to be really enjoying working in the riding school and is getting a good fan club.  He enjoys both lead reins and riders.  He is kind and gentle in the stable and loves Pony Days.

COCO - Action Man
Coco

13h2” 16 year old Welsh Part-Bred bay gelding. Coco is very, very popular and again has a waiting list of young riders. He is an exceptionally nice person in the stable but a little bit shy.

He is fantastic to ride and so wants to please his riders. He is not strong but is forward going without being scary. He is almost remote controlled and has a super jump and never ever stops.

He has competed at local shows with ourselves last year and did exceptionally well getting the in rosettes every time in the mini jumping, handy pony and gymkhana. A well loved pony by all.

PUZZLE - RIP 26/09/17

Puzzle

Puzzle passed away on 26th September 2017 and will be missed.

MAGIC MIKE

13h3 5 year old welsh section C chestnut gelding.  Mike came to us in the summer of 2017 from a friend of mine in Wales.  I watched his video on her FB and fell in love with the little fella so he had to come to live with us.  He is still young and learning but has a good heart and a good attitude to learning and is improving all the time.  He is good in the stable with nice manners and enjoys a good groom.

We found the riding school wasnt suiting Mike so my eldest daughter Hattie has took on the ride and he is now competing show jumping and looks like he has a bright future ahead of him as a competition pony.

MILO

We bought Milo to replace Mike.  Milo is a 8 yr old Newforest gelding.  He has been in a private home doing all Pony Club activities prior to us buying him.  He is a total asset to the team and is great to ride and groom. 

DYLAN

14h2 13 yr old Welsh Section D Black gelding. Dylan is very cheeky and if he can will walk into the middle of the school during a lesson for a fuss from me.  He is kind and gentle and looks after riders, he has done many show jumping shows and really enjoys jumping and hacking. He is good in the stable and enjoys being groomed and fussed.

NIGEL

Nigel

14h2” 15 year old Welsh Section D Black gelding. Nigel is beautiful!!!! Long flowing mane and tail with a personality to match his looks. He again has a big fan club and is very popular with our riders. He wants to please and is good in every sphere.

HERBIE - Llanidan Herbert

Herbie

15h1” 14 year old Welsh Section D bay gelding. Herbie is a lovely horse; he is quiet and shy with lovely manners and a loving temperament. We use Herbie for our more experienced riders as his dressage and jumping are special.

BILLY - THE BIG FUSE

16h1" 12 year old ISH gelding.  Billy was hunting in Ireland before he came to live with us so he really enjoys his cross country, jumping and hacking.  He is a big friendly giant.

 Texas
