Meet the ponies


Whitehaven Ponies

Dancer is chilled out and likes to take his time, but he is always well behaved and likes being fussed over.


This is Monty from Whitehaven.  He hates being left on his own and needs to be near other ponies.  Monty is the fastest trotter for those riders that like to be speedy!


Pip is very patient and will stand still for ages whilst everybody has a go at grooming her.  She is very friendly and likes attention.


Puzzle can look a bit grumpy, but he loves the attention he gets at RDA.  He is an expert at lining up at the mounting block and he is very competitive when doing races.


Sunny is always chilled out and is quite a character.  He likes to check out each bucket when doing games, just in case a carrot has appeared there.



Watch Hill Ponies

 She is very calm and an ideal pony for riders who are not very confident.


Ted is the biggest pony we use at Watch Hill. He is well behaved for both beginners and more experienced riders.


Tigger is a very cute pony who thinks about food all the time.  He is not exactly slim but he is a good RDA pony for both beginners and more advanced riders.
