Hello I'm Jasper, I'm an Irish Draught cross breed. I have competed in dressage, cross country and showjumping and have excelled in all aspects. I can help train you to jump as will happily jump up to 3 foot and will go over anything in front of me. I'm a real confidence giver and will look after all my riders.
Hello I'm Bentley, I'm a pure Suffolk Punch and was bred by the Allerton Family so have been at the centre all my life. I have taken to having people on my back like a fish to water and am a very sturdy horse to ride. Because I'm that bit bigger I can have slightly heavier riders. Unfortunatley you wont be able to have a lesson on me yet as I havent had much schooling but you maybe able to ride me on a trek.
Hello I'm Ted and I'm a Welsh cross breed. I have been at the centre for a few years now and have learnt a lot since I have been here. Before coming to the centre I never really did much riding and was a very good lawn mower, since being here I have learnt to stand still at the block to let my riders on and I have learnt to go at the front of the ride and be very brave. I can now take very beginners to experience riders and love to be fussed and kissed.
Hello I'm Hawk, I'm a friesian cross and have lived at the centre for 21 years. I was a Christmas present for Claire and we have grown up together ever since, I wasn't easy to start with and Claire could never stay on me but over the years she has taught me to behave. I am now 29 years young and still going strong, I retired last year due to having some issues with my hind legs but you will still see me around the yard being fussed. I am loving retirement and am having great fun getting lots of attention
Hello, my name is Bessy. I'm only a youngster but take everything in my stride. I will quiet happy pop around a little show jump course and take you for a nice smooth canter on the moor. I am suitable for all types of rider and a very sweet girl.
Hello I'm Amber, I'm a suffolk punch and mum to Bentley. I'm a big softy but sadly cant be ridden as I'm not to keen on having people on my back. You will still see me around the yard as I love to be pampered and fussed. If your lucky you may come at the right time of year to see one of my new babies.
Hello I'm George, I'm a Welsh cross bred. I have come along way since being here as I used to be really head shy and wouldn't be caught. I have since been having lessons with my mum and have learnt to jump and slow down a bit. Unfortunatly I cant take complete beginners as am still a bit quick but if you are a confident quiet rider I can help take you for a good canter on the moors.
Hello I'm Troy, I've been at the centre for a few years and love living out all year round. This lifestyle suits me better as I can be a bit grumpy when in a stable. I can take complete novices to experienced riders across the moors. I love to jump but have a very big and bold jump so if you are looking for a lesson I can only take experience jumpers as I wouldn't want to lose anyone. I have lovely floating paces and can teach novice riders to canter.
Hello I'm Kia, I'm a 13hh pony so enjoy being pampered by lots of children. You will see me being used for the pony days or going out for a trek with the smaller cildren. I am every little girls dream and love lots of attention.
Hello, I'm Patch. I'm a little piebald mare with plenty of character. I am very cheeky on the yard and will always check everyones pockets for treats. I am only young so still have plenty to learn but I look after all my riders no matter what. I haven been practising my school work recently so you will start to see me up on the schooling field more, but if I'm honest my favourite place to ride is on the moor.
Hello I'm Hannah, I'm the baby of the group and still have a lot too learn. Because I'm so young I will be taking it slow for a while until I have filled out and have learnt a bit more. I'm a Suffolk Punch so am a rare breed. You'll have great fun with me when I'm a bit older but for now your welcome to come and have a slow ride.
Hello my name is Teddy Bear or Teddy for short. All the kids love me as I am a cheeky little chappy and great to wizz around on. I am only small but all the children have great fun playing with me and spoiling me with lots of treats.
