Toro is from Spain where he was given to Hannah for Sirona from Lucy Rees, one of our patrons. He is a handsome black Lusitano X gelding who is very sensitive and intelligent. Toro is very bold and has a talent for jumping, having jumped both over the yard gate and out of his field so Ella is hoping to take him to some jumping events in the future!’
Chapas was also very kindly given to Hannah by Lucy Rees and came all the way from Spain. Despite being rescued from a mountain in very poor condition and with terrible scars on his nose from ill treatment he has the most positive and cheerful nature, and is quite a character, One of his party tricks is ‘sweeping’ the yard with a broom in his mouth!
Lily is on loan to us from the Mare and Foal Sanctuary near Totnes. She is an American miniature pony. Despite her small size she has a very strong character and clearly shows us what she wants.
Autumn is a 12.2hh New Forest mare on loan to us by Natalie Darling. A sweet natured pony who is really good with children and young people, Autumn is a firm favourite with many of our participants.
Frankie is a rescue American Miniature, on loan to us from the Mare and Foal Sanctuary. He only has one eye and can be a little anxious, but he has a very sweet nature and has taken the position as our smallest pony!
Rupert Jones is a lovely little Dartmoor Hill pony who was found abandoned on Dartmoor and rescued by Niki Collings, who has loaned him to us. He has a lovely sweet nature, but is also still a little nervous after moving home.
Mabel is a chestnut Shetland pony mare on loan to us from Rupert’s owner Nikki.
Mabel’s favourite pastime is eating.
