Our Horses and Ponies

We are really lucky at STE to have a fabulous range of horses and ponies for our clients to learn with and gain experience from.
They have all come from private homes and are very kindly loaned to us by their owners.
Our four-legged friends are described below from smallest to tallest.

 

Sidan

Sidan is a lovely pony who has been on the circuit as a showing pony. She has flashy movements and a burst of speed if the rider asks for it, but has a lovely temperament and is amazing with our younger riders.

Mickey

Mickey is an amazing pony, having done all types of Pony Club activities in his time. He has a lovely long, forward stride and will adapt to the level of the rider with endless patience. He’s a superstar.
He unfortunately only has one eye which makes him easy to spot on the yard but it does mean he needs to be approached carefully.
