Offering riding opportunities to disabled people in Oxfordshire and beyond.
Our horses are all very different characters - matched carefully with our riders.
A fun pony for RDA
Polo is a 13.1 welsh-cross strawberry roan.  He is almost grey in the summer and has a much darker flecked coat in the winter.  Polo came to us after having some fun and experience as a Pony Club all-rounder.  It is best to keep calm and quiet with Polo - he has some good memories that he would sometimes like to refresh.  Polo is a great fun ride who also loves kisses and cuddles. 
Beautiful ride for disabled youngsters and adults
Candy - loves the boys and is a real beauty.  She is a great favourite with the volunteers and riders but can be a bit of a handful when led down to the field after day in the yard.
Mr Brown is an extremely popular ride.  He had some early problems with lameness but seems to be over it now, thanks to a bit of tender loving care and therapy.
Speckles was 5 years old when we bought him in 2000.  He rides and drives and excels in everything.   Everyone loves to ride him – he is the perfect pony.  Speckles is the one to use for a suitable rider to have their first canter!
Jim Bob 14.2 and 6 years old (2016).  Jim Bob came from a riding school where he was competing with the younger riders, doing sponsored rides and taking nervous adults out on hacks.
Bryn is our smallest pony but he walks out beautifully - short legs don’t necessarily mean slow!  Bryn is a cheerful chap who is ideal for our smaller riders.
Jasper, purchased in May 2017 (12years old at the time), 13hh.  He seems very laid back but don’t be fooled - as with all ponies, he can pop in a bit of a surprise when you lose concentration. Jasper came from a family home and was previously ridden by the 2 children.  Apparently, when they got fed up, they would jump off and leave him and he would just stand there until they returned (we haven’t tested this!).

Radish has come to us in her later years and is 14.2.  She has had lots of fun

before she came to us and is happy to please and is enjoying being with us. 

Everybody loves her - she is going to be very popular.

Ernie, purchased in 2018, 14:3hh.  Ernie likes

to have a confident rider on board.  He can 

move beautifully and will make a super

dressage horse when he settles down and

has gained some experience of mixing in

different environments.

Prinnie or Prin - Princess is her real name.  Prin came to us in 2018 and is proving very popular.  She is a gentle soul who loves poeple and company.  Tesco donated the money for her purchase (we are so grateful to all those who voted for our charity and to Tesco for providing the opportunity.

Chase was acquired in June 2019 when he was 9 years old.  We think that Chase has a great future with us.  So far unflappable and a perfect size for some of our growing teenagers. 15:2 hh and piebald cob - you will notice that he is easy to spot, without much black down one side.  There was a little money left over from the purchase of Prin to put towards the purchase of Chase (thank you Tesco).
Rosie stands at 15:3 and is an Irish Sport horse with a pretty laid-back attitude.  She was 16 years old when purchased and she knows that she is beautiful! Rosie was purchased using a wonderful donation from Wooden Spoon - thank you so much. Rosie will be perfect for some our our taller riders - she is forward going but has some sound brakes. She is very biddable and keen to please.
Maple is a 14:2 Cob and dark bay (almost black). Purchased by the parents of one of our riders in June 2019,  Maple will be a great asset to the yard.  A perfect size for the lighter teenagers and adults.
Malcom arrived in early May 2019 and went to his first competition in June (Southern Region Qualifiers).  We were quite short of horses at the time, so it was a tall order for him to take over from JimBob (who was under the weather at the time).  Malcolm surpassed himself and behaved impeccably and the children rode him beautifully.
