OUR HORSES

Our horses are quality happy horses,  very professional, who look after their riders.   They have all spent their entire riding lives within this area and are used to the challenging terrain and steep hills. During the month of August they climb the equivalent of Everest over the whole month!  Once at the top of the Beacons they love to watch the views to check for other 'herds' and 'predators'!

Juta - 15hh Appaloosa - 19 years -  our main lead horse, Parelli trained, with great paces and an amazing dancing horse!  Although she is one of the smallest horses on the yard her personality and maturity make her very much the boss amongst the Big Boys!   more...

Tom- 16.1hh Clydesdale - is a very kind and supportive ride with majestic paces, and a canter to DIE for!!  He works hard, and in spite of his larger build keeps up well with the more 'sporty' type horses in the yard.  He is a great weight carrier, and rises to the challenge of confident riders.  9 years of age, he is becoming a very reliable member of the team.        more...

Archie - 17.1hh Irish Sports Horse - generous, willing, mischievous, a play boy, and a bit of a racer at times!  Another team player we can always rely upon to carry novice to highly experienced riders.  Everyone loves Archie because of his generous personality.    more...

Papoose - 16.1hh Irish Sports Horse x Welsh Cob - with a WC stubborn and characterful personality, for experienced riders  willing, sometimes strong, fussy about who rides him, but an excellent dressage horse.  If he fitted into a pocket he would have found many a good home!   more...

Rio- PRE Andalusian 15.2hh - 6yrs of age - a gentle, cooperative little horse, very much in his early years of learning, but responding well and quietly to his training.  He is already leading rides out from behind,  however, not yet ready to take the lead in front!    more...

Theo - 14.3hh Cob Theo is our newest member of our riding team, and is one of the strongest!  He is currently transitioning to barefoot, but going well and loving his rides out over the hills.  Theo is a pony suitable for any rider!  A real Gem.    more...

Danny - Section C Welsh Cob x Arab? - 11 yrs old - Our 'new boy' in the yard, rather nervous at first, but settling well into our quiet and gentle ways, and responding lightly to a kind and understanding competent rider.   Danny will soon be the heart-throb of our competent young teenage riders!   more...

Ryan - Appaloosa Warmblood - 11 yrs old - Our 'new boy' in the yard, rather nervous at first, but settling well into our quiet and gentle ways, and responding lightly to a kind and understanding competent rider.   Danny will soon be the heart-throb of our competent young teenage riders!    more...

You will also meet a number of other horses when you visit our yard.  Pebbles, 14yr Thoroughbred, on semi-retirement available for Gentle Horse and Rider Workshops, Dandy our 25 yr old Irish Draught x thoroughbred, who takes out short rides through the woods to Selworthy church, or around the lanes of Luccombe, Horner and Porlock.  Albi is one of our youngsters, along with Flo, both in training to be sensible riding horses hopefully in 2020 - so they too will join our working team!  Watch this space and their development!
