Shadow
 

Shadow


Born: 2004
Breed: Mixed breed
Colour: Grey
Height: 12.2hh

Silver Shadow is a gorgeous little pony with a big character! This sweet grey pony may have little legs, but his lack of height doesn't slow him down - he enjoys his work and will even give Speedy a run for her money! Do stop and say hello to him when you are next at the yard, he's a friendly chap, and likes to see visitors at his stable door.

Treacle
 

Treacle


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

Treacle is incredibly friendly and really enjoys cuddles. As one of our steadiest ponies, she is excellent for beginner lessons - with endless patience and a love of children, she always looks after her rider. She also loves gymkhana games and is rather good at them!  A real treasure, she's always happy to stand while our instructors are teaching horse care or when the children are grooming her, as she simply loves to be made a fuss of!

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 fast, and she has no problem keeping up with the bigger ponies!

Monnie
 

Monnie

Height: 13.1hh

Blaze joined Ride High in 2020 and has made a great impression with both our team and visitors. A hard worker, he's a happy-go-lucky character and a great allrounder. He does have some antisocial stable habits though - so if you see him chewing on his door, don't be alarmed!

Smartie
 

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!

Dusty
 

Dusty

Breed: Shetland x Mini Cob

Breed: Welsh Section A
Colour: Grey
Height: 11.2 hh

Heidi is the petite princess of our yard! She loves to be groomed and always looks after our smallest riders in the school.

Trelly
 

Trelly

Rosie
 

Rosie


Born: 2015
Breed: Gypsy Cob
Colour: Piebald

Freddie
 

Freddie


Born: 2019
Breed: Welsh
Colour: Black
Height:  Approx. 13hh (he’s still growing!)

Freddie is our resident baby and is not currently used for ridden work. A beautiful Welsh pony, he was gifted to Ride High in 2022 as a 3-year old and our team are gently beginning his education. Lots of things are new to Freddie, our yard is much busier than his previous home, but he is settling in well and he’s a typical youngster, inquisitive and a little mouthy, nibbling anything his nose connects with – a bit like a new puppy!

Freddie
 

Dib Dab


Born: 2017
Breed: Irish Cob
Colour: Piebald
Height: 14.2

Dib Dab is a beautiful Irish Cob who joined Ride High in 2020. As she was only 3, we began her education slowly, and in 2022 she started work in the riding school.

Dib Dab is a sweet natured girl who enjoys her job in the school and looks after her rider.  She also loves to stand and be groomed, which is great, given her lovely, long mane and very thick bushy tail!  Do come and say hello to her if you see her on the yard!

Seamus


Born: 2012
Breed: Cob
Colour: Black
Height: 15 hh

A striking black cob, Seamus joined Ride High in late 2019 and has settled in well with the other horses and our team on the yard. He enjoys his work in the riding school and likes to calmly watch the world go by from his stable. He's a sweet horse, blessed with a lovely inquisitive nature, so do come and say hello if you see his big white nose at the stable door!

Useful Information:

*hh stands for hands high.br/> Horses are traditionally measured in hands and inches from the ground up to the base of the horse's neck.

A hand is 4 inches so a 14. 2 hands high pony means 14 hands and 2 inches. Therefore 58 inches from the ground to his shoulder/base of neck.

The Colour 'Grey' 
In the horse world every horse that looks white is called grey. Horses that are grey can be born any colour, however, bay, chestnut, or black base colours are most common. As the horse matures, white hairs begin to replace the base or birth colour - which explains why our snowy white Treacle probably got her name!
