HORSE RIDING

Our horses & ponies are waiting to meet you!

We have a range of horses and ponies who are all continually trained and assessed for their suitability to all levels of riding experience, age groups and physical abilities. Our current horses and ponies are…

FERNE

Height: 16hh
Colour: Bay
Date of Birth: 15th May
Mare/Gelding: Mare
Type/Breed: Cob

Description: Ferne is currently our biggest horse at Clyne Farm. Ironically, her best friend is the smallest member of our equine team, Spot. Ferne is the boss of the herd and very much enjoys her time relaxing in the field. She is a great jumper, and sometimes cheekily demonstrates this by jumping over the gate out of the field!

BERT

Height: 15.1hh
Colour: Skewbald
Date of Birth: 20th May
Mare/Gelding: Gelding
Type/Breed: Gypsy Cob

Description: Bert is a great character, he loves having all of the attention. He really enjoys group lessons and jumping. He is also an escape artist, so has to be put in a stable when he comes into the yard.

WARRIOR

Height: 15.1hh
Colour: Piebald
Date of Birth: 6th June
Mare/Gelding: Gelding
Type/Breed: Gypsy Cob

Description: Warrior loves going hacking across the common, especially with his best friend Bert. If you catch him having a snooze – look out for his very droopy bottom lip! He isn’t a fan of the clippers, but he knows he looks a lot smarter following a haircut.

TONTO

Height: 15hh
Colour: Piebald
Date of Birth: 23rd May
Mare/Gelding: Gelding
Type/Breed: Gypsy Cob

Description: Tonto is a favourite amongst staff members. He is great to practice some more established dressage movements in the arena. He loves going hacking to the Wildflower Café, because the owners feed him lots of carrots!

ROCKY

Height: 13hh
Colour: Grey
Date of Birth: 14th September
Mare/Gelding: Gelding
Type/Breed: Pony

Description: Rocky, nicknamed ‘The Rockstar’, is a firm favourite with our clients. He is a really good pony to learn to canter on. No matter how muddy the ground is, he is always very clean!

BOYO

Height: 13hh
Colour: Piebald
Date of Birth: 11th June
Mare/Gelding: Gelding
Type/Breed: Gypsy Cob

Description: Boyo is great at jumping and can also do a very smart dressage test. He really enjoys going for a hack across the common with the big horses. He is very pleased when clients bring polos and apples as treats for him at the end of their ride.

CARA

Colour: Chestnut Roan
Date of Birth: 22nd September
Mare/Gelding: Mare

Date of Birth: 1st January
Mare/Gelding: Gelding
