Meet The Horses

Bobby
Bobby

Born: 2012
Breed: Cob
Colour: Dappled Grey
Height: 15.3hh

 

Bobby is the newest member of the team at the Ride High Equestrian Centre. His first friend was Mishka but now he’s been added to the boys herd he’s making many more pony pals. Bobby loves cuddles, baths, hacking out and exploring new places. He’s really brave and you’ll find him helping out our beginners as they learn to ride. He’s still learning the ropes and doesn’t like being startled so if you see him sleeping in his stable be sure to approach him quietly.

Jemima
Jemima

Born: 2012
Breed: It’s a mystery!
Colour: Dark Bay
Height: 13hh

 

Jemima is one of a kind! Adorable, hardworking and a tough little cookie who’s afraid of nothing. She’s affectionately nicknamed ‘Baby Rhino’ because of her uncanny resemblance to these beasts – did you know that the International Rhino Foundation says that the closest living rhino relatives are horses! She’s very protective of her pony friends and she hates being on a diet.

Tinks
Tinks

Born: 2012
Breed: Shetland
Colour: Dark Bay
Height: 9.1hh

 

Affectionately known as Tinkerbell, this cheeky pony is the smallest member of the ride high family. Tinks loves attention and can often be seen stretching her little nose up over the stable door, waiting to greet anyone who walks by. True to the typical Shetland personality, Tinks is also quite mischievous and is still learning her manners in the school, but she has a heart of gold and is great with visitors of all ages.

B45-Smarty
Smartie

Born: 2001
Breed: Connemara X
Colour: Grey
Height: 15hh

 

Smartie is our resident laid back sun worshipper with a cheeky side. He’s great with our beginners and while some may say he’s lazy we just think he likes to take a chilled-out approach to life. His favourite thing is to pass back his feed bucket when he’s finished so our yard team can fill it up for him!

Wizard
Wizard

Born: 1998
Breed: Warmblood
Colour: Bay

Gentle giant Wizard is one our tallest residents but don’t let that put you off. He’s great with all ages and loves attention. Make sure you say hello when you pass his stable.

Kofi cropped
Kofi

Born: 2002
Breed: Welsh Section D
Colour: Bay
Height: 16hh

 

Kofi is one of the newest members at the Ride High Equestrian Centre. We think you’ll agree that he’s a very handsome boy with a personality to match! Kofi is usually very chilled and likes to take things at a gentle pace, unless it’s time to have a bath and then it’s a different story! Be sure to say hello next time you see him with his big head over the stable door.

MJ
MJ

Born: 2003
Breed: Thoroughbred X
Colour: Grey
Height: 16hh

 

MJ is the grandma of the herd and is usually very chilled unless she’s ‘hangry’! School work isn’t her strong point, but hacking is her main love and she has helped test all the new hacking routes we offer. She’s very trusting and she can often be found hanging out in the fields with her pony pals.

Paddy
Paddy

Born: 2008
Breed: Cob
Colour: Piebald

Paddy is a real heart stealer! He will always greet you with a friendly whinny and wants nothing more than love and affection. A hardy little horse with bundles of energy, his big dislike is not getting enough attention!

Bonnie
Bonnie

Born: 2007
Breed: Irish Sport Horse
Colour: Grey
Height: 15.3hh

 

Bonnie loves the finer things in life including ‘spa days’ on the yard, sleeping in her stable, and good food. If she could have her way she’d take early retirement and head straight to the Bahamas! So long as there aren’t any crazy pigeons over there…

Splash
Splash

Born: 1990

Ponies on the yard
Coco

Born: 2011
Breed: Welsh X
Colour: Strawberry Roan
Height: 14hh

 

Coco is friends with everyone, horses and people, and he loves being in the field with his friends. Coco is quite sensitive and caring and picks up on emotions and body language.

Speedy
Speedy

Born: 2003
Breed: Welsh X
Colour: Skewbald
Height: 11.2hh

 

Speedy is one of the smallest ponies on the yard. She may be small but her legs move at 100 miles an hour like a cartoon! Her favourite part of the day is nap time, and she can often be found lying flat out in her stable. Speedy is very friendly and loves interacting with people so make sure you come and meet her.

Poppy
Poppy

Born: 1990
Breed: New Forest

Fun, reliable, calm and a natural at what she does. Poppy loves helping beginner riders, especially as they learn to canter, and one of her favourite things is going out to explore on a hack.

Becca
Becca

Born: 2005
Breed: Connemara
Colour: Grey

Dolly
Dolly

Born: 1997
Breed: Irish Sport Pony
Colour: Chestnut
Height: 13hh

 

Dolly is a true princess, she loves fuss and attention – especially baths and big scratches. She feeds off your behaviour and feelings so if you are calm Dolly is too, if you start getting a bit excited Dolly will notice and get a bit energetic as well! She is independent and happy to lead the group during lesson times. In the field she likes to hang out with her friend Poppy.

Grady 2
Grady

Born: 2001
Breed: New Forest X
Colour: Grey
Height: 13.2hh

 

Grady is his own pony, he will listen to your idea and then give a few of his own and likes to test who’s boss. He is happiest trotting up and down his field, speaking to any passing people or horses. Grady is very soft and lovely to groom, and is a nice gentle ride with easy paces.

Suave
Suave

Born: 2002
Breed: Irish Sport Horse X Irish Draft
Colour: Bay
Height: 17.2hh

 

Ride High’s largest resident. Even though he’s big Suave is super friendly and an extremely handsome horse. His favourite part of the day is breakfast time when he’s known to neigh as loud as he can to let the team know he’s hungry. He likes to hide in the back of his stable and sleep so please look out for him if you can’t see his head over the stable door.

Darcy
Mr Darcy

Born: 2005
Breed: Cob X Dales
Colour: Black
Height: 15.3hh

 

Mr Darcy is still settling in at the centre and is sometimes like an annoying little brother in the big horses field. He’s a safe pair of hooves for our beginner riders and when he gets going he loves a trot and canter. We’re all looking forward to getting to know this super cob better!

George
George

Born: 2005
Breed: Welsh Pony
Colour: Grey
Height: 13hh

 

A real sweetheart and very honest, George will always try his best. He loves working with children so will often be found in our beginner lessons helping younger riders build their confidence. George is blind in one eye so doesn’t like people sneaking up on him. He can often be found hanging out with his best friend and naughty sidekick Shrek.

Gunner
Gunner

Born: 2011
Breed: Gypsy Cob
Colour: Piebald
Height: 14hh

 

As one of the youngest members of our equine team, Gunner is still learning the ropes. He loves a cuddle and bananas are his absolute favourite treat. You might find him saying hello over his stable door in the courtyard – he does love a nose scratch. He definitely has the funkiest fringe on the yard. Kindly supported by GMS

Peggy
Peggy

Born: 2003
Breed: Irish X
Colour: Dark Bay
Height: 15.2hh

 

Peggy is one of the largest horses at the centre. She is a firm favourite in the arena as she is such an experienced and capable ride. On the ground she can be a little grumpy, and certainly feels confident telling you how she feels. You’ll find Peggy out in the field overseeing the other mares.

Treacle
Treacle

Born: 1998
Breed: New Forest
Colour: Grey
Height: 13.1hh

 

Treacle is incredibly friendly and really enjoys cuddles. She is excellent for beginner lessons with endless patience and a love of children. Treacle really enjoys her work in the arena and also in the courtyard being groomed and preened. She is very good at standing still while our instructors are teaching students and clients about horse care, she simply loves the attention. She is a popular member of the equine team too with many friends out in the field.

Shrek
Shrek

Born: 2005
Breed: Exmoor
Colour: Brown
Height: 11hh

 

This in one little pony with a very big personality. Shrek has made firm friends with Tinks, our littlest pony on the yard, and together they are masters of escape. You will often see them in the field together plotting how to get under the fence to find the grass on the other side. Shrek is a cool dude and enjoys the sunshine when it is streaming into the yard.

Tonto
Tonto

Born: 2012
Breed: Connemara
Colour: Grey
Height: 14.2hh

 

Tonto has been with us since November 2017 and is a firm part of our equine family. He’s pretty chilled and loves going out on hacks, being one of the youngsters he finds all the different sights, sounds and smells very exciting. He enjoys his playtime out in the field with the rest of the boys, stretching his legs and finding his place in the herd. Coming from ‘up north’ he loves the colder weather so looks forward to winter time! He’s easy to spot with his lovely dappled grey face.

Star
Star

Born: 1998
Breed: Welsh X
Colour: Bay
Height: 12.3hh

 

Star is very sweet-natured and calm, she loves cuddles and is at her best when she is helping with our sensory programmes and equine-facilitated learning sessions as part of our corporate services. She is patient and eager to interact with people so enjoys her time in the indoor arena helping people to learn. Star enjoys hanging out with the herd in the field, taking life slowly and pottering around.

Puzzle
Puzzle

Born: 2010
Breed: Welsh X
Colour: Piebald
Height: 12hh

 

Puzzle is new to the yard, and what a lovely new arrival she is. She has started riding in lessons and has fitted well into the equine team. She is very friendly and calm, perfect for some of our smallest beginner riders. She is only little at 12hh, just slightly bigger than Speedy – but can you tell them apart?

*hh stands for hands high.
Horses are traditionally measured in hands and inches from the ground up to the base of the horses neck. A hand is 4 inches so a 14. 2 hands high pony means 14 hands and 2 inches. Therefore 58 inches.

** Grey

In the horse world every horse that looks white is called grey.
