Calypso was our first pony and we started the riding school with just her and Sparkle.

She is our ‘happy hacker’ and has been trotting up the hill to the woods for more than 12 years now delighting numerous children, with her lovely skewbald colouring she is a favourite with many of our pupils.

Sparkle

Sparkle1

Age: 24
Colour: Roan
Size: 11 hh
Breed: Welsh Mountain Pony

Sparkle is our oldest and our smallest pony! He is perfect for our younger pupils and most people started riding on him.

He is very cute and a great character. He loves a Polo after you have had your ride but hates mud and stony ground but best of all he does something very clever…he changes colour!

Chelsea is the biggest of our ponies, technically a Cob, she is a gentle giant and although she takes our bigger pupils she is perfectly safe with our younger pupils too. With her long mane she also gives people chance to practice their hairdressing skills!
