Meet the Herd

Veteran Horses/Ponies
Since horses are herd animals, they love to be around each other. We have a number of horses / ponies who are part of our herd, and who know each other well. At the end of May 2016, we got 5 new ponies and one new foal, which were from a rescue farm. We are working to incorporate these newcomers into our existing herd, and they are adjusting really well.
AMY
Amy is an incredibly gentle horse, suitable for any age and experience rider. She is relatively new to our herd, only joining us at the end of May 2016. She joined us with 5 other ponies, and one foal. She has a very smooth trot and canter. Amy is currently away on Maternity Leave

PUMPKIN
Pumpkin is one of our veteran horses. She is a very strong horse, especially for a “grandma” – her grand-daughter, Calypso, was born on the 2 June 2016. Unfortunately, her previous owners were terrible, and hacked one of her eyes out with a machete. In spite of this, she is loving and careful with riders. Her only draw-back is that she kicks, so she needs to walk at the back of the ride.

RIBBON

SKEMER
Skemer is a huge black carriage horse. He is used on outrides, and also is one of two horses used to pull our carriage. When he walks, he picks up his legs proudly, and when he canters it sounds like a thousand horses cantering, but he has a lovely nature, and is easy to handle. He looks intimidating, but is really a big softie.
