Toro is from Spain where he was donated to Hannah for Sirona from Lucy Rees, one of our patrons. He is a young black Lusitano x gelding who is very sensitive and is still in training. Toro is very bold and inquisitive and has shown a talent for jumping, having jumped over the yard gate and out of his field so we are hoping our new apprentice will enjoy jumping him 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!
Rosie is a Cob-Cross mare who is now middle aged. She is a very kind and gentle horse who teaches people well and is a firm favourite with many of our participants, especially those who lack confidence at first.
Lily is on loan to us from the Mare and Foal Sanctuary near Totnes. She is an American miniature pony. Despite this she has a very strong character and knows what she wants.
Autumn – 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.
Roxi is a fabulous 5 year old Cob kindly donated to us. Roxi only had one home before coming to Sirona, so joining our team is a big change for her.
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.
