Sadly we say goodbye to lovely Gorda who has been with us for nearly 3 years. In December she went back to her owner  Olivia for a well earned rest. We will all miss her as she was a big part of our riding team. We wish her a long and happy retirement

 

                                                                                         

 

 

 

Dotty is a Welsh Cob, 24 years of age and also 15 hands high. She has spent 5 years at Sandhurst Military College in their riding school helping the officers to ride. She also has a gentle nature and is ideal for our many riders. Picture below:  Dotty being ridden by Mark

 

         

 

Rory: After nearly two years with us our lovely Rory will be retiring in December for a well earned rest. He is going back to his owner Helen who is also one of our RDA Riding Coaches. We all wish him a long and happy retirement.

 

'Perry' is our new pony for RDA approved horse riding. He is an ex polo pony about 19 years old with a wonderful calm and peaceful nature. He arrived early May 2017 and has now settled into his new home at the Centre and started taking riding sessions.  He is going to be a very popular pony.
