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.

 

TEDDY 

 

10h2 4 year old coloured gelding.  Teddy was abandoned on the side of the road in Nuneaton. Sadly no one wanted him as he’s unbroken and tiny so he’s come to live with us.  We will take our time with him and he should be working in the riding school by spring 2020. 

 

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 we 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.

 

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.

 
BOS
 
Bos 12h2 14 year old bay gelding.  Bos was originally a livery but was sadly outgrow.  He’s such a poppet that we bought him for the riding school.  He’s a forward going pony off the lead rein that likes to jump and canter.  He’s a little timid in the stable but does enjoy his 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.

 

MILO

Milo is a 8 yr old 13h2 Newforest bay 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. 

 

INSPECTOR KEITH 

Keith is an 8 year old 13h2 coloured cob.  He was in the same home for 3 years before coming to us as he was sadly outgrown.  He has done all riding club activities including jumping and showing. He is fabulous on the road and enjoys a good fuss. 

 

 

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 RIP gorgeous boy July 2019

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.

 

GET CARTER 

 

16hh 16 year old grey gelding ISH.  Before coming to live with us Carter competed in Ireland eventing. He’s schooled beautifully and is bold and honest to a fence.  He’s a firm favourite with our regular riders as he has so much to give and is a 5* ride. Hes a total gentleman in the stable.

 

FORESTLAND CLIPPER 

 

Forest is a 13 year old 16hh bay gelding ISH.  Forest has evented BE 90 with us and is now jumping British Show Jumping and has competed in Wales in his first Derby and was amazing.  His flat work is to die for with flying changes and lateral work established.  We only use Forest for our more experienced clients who are wanting to work to the next level.
