Meet the Horses

Some of the ponies are staying, we are sorry to say goodbye to the leavers  but hope that we will be able to find some nice replacements including working liveries especially for the larger horses.

Buster is staying

He is a real fun pony.  He schools, jumps and hacks.  He was a real star when some of the clients took him to a show, jumping lots of clear rounds and doing very well in the gymkhana games.

Buster is staying around but is returning to private use at Bulby.  He has been a fabulous pony at the school and now needs to get out and about with his owner at Pony Club Activities and events.

He may help on some of the pony days....he just loves the fuss and the hacks and will take part in the Grimsthorpe sponsored ride next year.

Hewy is staying

He is an adorable pony who loves his gymkhana games.  He is wonderful on or off the lead rein.

He is staying at the yard and we are going to try to get him out and about going to competitions.

Crispin is staying.

Crispin is a Queensdale pony and is very elegant.  He loves to school and is very obediant to walk, trot and canter.

He needs to get out and about to broaden his experience and we plan to take him out to Laughton Manor on Fridays and to other events to continue his education.

Emma is staying.

Emma is a really nice middleweight cob.  She is wonderful to take out on hacks.  Emma likes to pop a little jump.  She is a really safe little mare without being 'boring'.  Recently Emma went out Show Jumping with one of our clients and she had a lovely time!

Penny will return.

Much to the delight of many at the riding school Penny will return.

After winning the Chase me Charlie jumping competition suprisingly beating the magnificent Daisy there was concern that she might have arthritis and would be too old to breed from.  The great news is that she came straight into season at stud but it was decided to wait until Spring to put her in foal so she returned to activity taking her intrepid rider to the opening meet of the Quorn and hunting for four hours. He was glad he followed advice to use her recommended hunting bit! The next day she delighted her jockey taking him over 4' at the Pony Club rally. She rode out both days without any need for medication. What a relief!  We hope she may come back to the riding school for the remainder of the winter then return to stud in Spring.

Wizz may return

Wizz started life as a show pony and was shocked when left to his and his rider's own devices at first.  He came on beautifully , and needs bringing on further.  He leads well with the occasional kiss on the nose and loved his trip to the seaside, overcoming his fear of water to let the waves wash over his hooves.  We hope with attention from more experienced riders he will come 'good'. He is such a handsome dun and has a sweet nature when his leader is relaxed....we shall see!

Jasper is doing fine!

Jasper is a lively pony who loves jumping and has gone out on loan.  He is looking fab and came out for the first meet of the Cottesmore.  He is training to do pony club games so we shall check out his progress and report back, hoping that he makes the pony club team.

Molly may return

Molly is a wonderful safe mare who is very easy to lead and useful for beginners.  When she first came to the yard she was wonderfully light off the leg and if she returns we hope to get the balance right for her.   She is currently on 'holiday' at stud but may come back for the remainder of the winter before being put in foal for the Spring. She has such a lovely nature and remains calm in the most suprising situations.   Now that she has had a break hacking out in the countryside we hope that she will be refreshed.

Flash is a very handsome boy, he is a real fun pony both on or off the lead rein. We hope he might be staying but have not heard any news.

Whymsical Lyric.

Lyric is on working livery here with us.  She competes and has points at British Dressage.  Lyric loves to school and is one for those who are really serious about their schooling. We hope Lyric may be staying but we have not heard any news.

Moonshine Silas Good bye and good luck

Silas is a real favourite in the riding school.  He is an advanced dressage pony and in his day competed at International level.  He loves his work and is excellent for those who wish to learn dressage from a real schoolmaster.  Silas also adores his jumping.

Sadly Silas is going but we hope that we will find another schoolmaster to take his place.  He has been an amazing pony to have at the yard and will be missed.

Daisy is now in foal and is leaving with owner Louise as she starts a new venture close to her own home.

Daisy Good bye and good luck.

Daisy is a 'jack of all trades'.  Whatever you want to learn, she has been there.  She has competed in British Dressage up to Elementary.  She qualified and competed at the British Dressage winter finals at Solihul and the British Dressage Eastern Regional finals.

She has competed at British Eventing at Pre-Novice (her short legs prevented her going up to Novice level!)

She has successfully shown in working hunter classes and coloured horse classes.

Daisy loves her hunting and hacking out.  She is one for those who want to further their jumping ability or have a good fun hack.

William. Good bye and good luck

William is an adorable pony.  He does all pony club activities and loves his hunting.  He is wonderful for smaller children (although the older children do love to do the gymkhana games on him!)  He is perfect on or off the lead rein.

Moonshine Keswick. Good bye and good luck

Keswick  has competed at Elementary Dressage Level and qualified and competed at the British Dressage Eastern Regional finals in his day.  He is now here to teach you the finer points of dressage.  Keswick is a very elegant horse, ideal for the taller rider.  Keswick has been known to jump and enjoys his hacking.

Murphy.Good bye and good luck.

Murphy is a very grand horse, he is a shire cross.  Murphy is a well schooled chap who loves to be in the school. He has a lovely jump in him and is quiet to hack out. He is also brilliant on the lead rein. Murphy is not owned by the yard and sadly he will be leaving the yard.

To all those horses which were not used in the riding school we say.... Good bye and good luck

Mr Sago.Good bye and good luck

Sage has competed at British Eventing up to Intermediate level in his day.  More recently he competes at British Dressage up to Elementary.  Sage has qualified for the British Dressage winter finals at Solihul and has competed at British Dressage Eastern Regionals.

He is a tall slender chap who has an awful lot to give to those who are really commited to developing their dressage and jumping skills

Toryn. Good bye and good luck

Toryn was broken by us in the summer and has proved to be a real gent.  He was the escort hack when we took some clients on the Grimsthorpe sponsored ride and also enjoyed a morning out cubbing with the Cottesmore.  He will enjoy a competitive career and will then join the other competition horses in the school for all to enjoy and learn from.

 

Monkey.Good bye and good luck.

Monkey is a New Forest x 14.2hh pony. He has recently been broken by Louise and is now being succesfully ridden away. Look out for him for the future, he is going to be a star!

Queensdale Red Pennant. Good bye and good luck.

Red has already won 3rd place in a Youngstock class as a yearling. He is going to be shown by Louise and when ready he will come into the riding school.

 

 

Queensdale Alfredo. Good bye and good luck.

Alfie is a stunning pony. He is just about to start his showing career with Louise and he is sure to win a few titles in his life! Watch this space to see his progress.

Ody. Goodbye and good luck.

Ody is a real chracter and can't wait to start his riding career as soon as he is old enough. He will be broken in by Louise.

Sam Goodbye and good luck.
Sam was rescued by Louise and Paul, he is now a picture of health and being taught and handled ready to start a little showing next year.
