Sirona’s Horses

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!’

 

 

May -Chapas! - shaun deriozChapas  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 – 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Roxi is a fabulous 5 year old Cob kindly on loan to us by Ginny and David. Roxi only had one home before coming to Sirona, so joining our team is a big change for her. We have been long reining Roxi and getting her used to pulling a re in preparation for driving.

 

 

 

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.
