Here's some of our riding school horses and ponies.
Tonka - 15hh, 20 yrs old. Tonka ia our ' million pound pony' . He has seen his owners 4 children through Pony Club, has competed side saddle at all our county shows and is a fantastic little horse to gain confidence in any discipline. He can turn his hoof to dressage or cross country, or happy hacking, he loves it all.
Boss - our largest horse standing at possibly near 18hh (will put the stick on him one day) and is a super chap. Keen and very light to ride he has done a bit of everything including jumping BS up to Newcomers, cross country and dressage. Is great to hack around the tracks and is a lovely friendly person.
Hatty - was our biggest horse until Boss arrived standing at 17hh,15 years old. she's a gentle giant. She's an Irish mare who has spent most of her life hunting. Tamsin has taken her out show jumping which she loves so is very good for more experienced riders who want to have jumping lessons but can also be amazingly quiet with novice riders and due to her very smooth stride makes it easy for novice riders to get into trotting.
Annie - 12.2hh, she is another one of our gorgeous RSPCA ponies. She is a beautiful pony who has excelled in showjumping competitons, being on one of our gold medal winning academy teams. Quite a forward pony, she is great for more confident children who are progressing quickly. She arrived at Weston with a foal at foot, Wiggins, who's now 5 and starting his ridden work.
Valerie B - lovely bay mare that I jump in 1.30 classes. She's 16.3hh and 13 years old and is now Grade A, and has numerous wins at a lot of venues. Sire: Hold Up Premier."Everyone should have a Val B". I leased her to a young rider in 2014 where they qualified to jump in the Children on Horses teams taking us to Belgium, gold medal winning team, Germany and the European Champs in Italy. I leased her again in 2015 and we had another amazing year with good results here and abroad, and a great 2nd place in the Hickstead Childrens final. I have now sold a half share in Val to Tara who rode her in 2014, and they are having a very successful 2016 so far.
Night Life - Super home bred gelding, out of Grade A mare My Life that I jumped for 12 years and by Caretino Glory. He was backed summer 2011 and has proven to be quite a tricky horse over the years. In his 8th year now he is finally starting to strengthen and grow up, jumping double clears in Newcomers and Foxhunter classes. He qualified for the Amateur final this year and is slowly becoming a really nice horse.
