Our Horses

Our Ponies and Horses

All our ponies, and horses live on-site, in paddocks so they can exercise, relax, and to do 'horsey things' with their friends between their work sessions. We ensure that they receive training to do their jobs with skill, and care, have regular health care (dental checkups, hoof care and vet care as required).  

Rocky

Our 10 year old welsh-arab pony.


Rocky is a very chilled pony who handles a high workload with grace, and patience.  He totally understands our riders with disabilities, and changes himself to suit them, and keep them safe.  He is also very happy to have a canter, and jump for those that are able.

Argon's Tommy Tucker


Tommy joined us at the beginning of 2017.  A Northland pony of unknown heritage, Tommy is a kind, and patient, chunky pony who is fitting in to his new role and enjoying life in our herd.   Tommy's purchase and upkeep for 2017 is proudly sponsored by Argon Construction

We're looking for another mid sized chunky pony.   Can you help? Have you got an older pony in your paddock? 

June

June is our big Percheron x girl.  She loves a scratch (anywhere), and is a kind, patient, gentle girl who loves lots of human attention. 

June is confident and likes to go for a ride through the bush with our independent riders,  yet calm enough to help our riders with disabilities.

Nutmeg "Meg"


Nutmeg

Nutmeg is our oldest horse at 20 years, but has plenty of life in her, and is a friendly experienced girl for our riders, and volunteers.   

At 15.2hh she is not as large as June, but more than big enough for our larger clients.  Nutmeg has worked at a trekking company, and at a riding school so she handles just about anything in her stride.

Gus 

Gus is an appaloosa, although you will have a hard time finding any spots.  He's a calm, solid horse, who is happy to help out.

Lolly

Lolly is our newest addition.  She is also an appaloosa, but unlike Gus you can clearly see her heritage.
