THIS IS JUST A SELECTION OF OUR EQUINE TEAM- WE HAVE 13 HORSES AND PONIES AT GREENWAYS FOR CLIENTS TO RIDE!
Bailey- 17.2hh Irish Draught X. 22 years old. Bailey is a "been there, done it" horse who enjoys nothing better than a good old hack. He was, however, a great dressage horse in his day, and can still show off his moves! Due to an old injury he is no longer able to jump, but he's a very popular horse for our adult riders. He is a true gentleman and a lovely chap to be around.
Bertie- 13.2hh Welsh X Pony. 11 years old. Bertie has been a slow burner and it has taken him a long time to get used to life as a riding school pony. He is now an awesome pony who everyone enjoys riding; he excels in gymkhanas and is a dressage superstar in the making!
Comet- 16.1hh ISH. 19 years old. Comet has been there, done that and got many T-shirts to prove it! A great allrounder with a particular love of hacking. Comet is a sensible, steady ride. He'd much prefer to be out of the arena on a hack or the XC course but will look after (if not test you!) in the arena too- but don't be fooled, he knows exactly what to do if you can push the right buttons!
William- 17.3hh ISH. 16 years old. William is a very popular boy with our adult and teenage riders. He is a true gentle giant, and will turn his hoof to anything: flatwork, hacking, or jumping. Great confidence giver for jumping as his size means he needs very little effort to tackle the fences.
Wizard- 12.3hh Dartmoor Hill Pony. 11 years old. Wizard is a super fun pony! He really looks after his riders, and will teach them as much as the instructor can! Wizard also loves taking part in gymkhana games and pony parties. *Wizard has now been sold to a private home since the lockdown. He and his new owner Molly are having the BEST time together and we love getting updates from them about how much of a superstar he is!*
Noodles- 14hh Cob type. 6 years old. Noodles is the latest addition to the Greenways team, arriving in September 2020. Although he is still young and learning the ropes of being a riding school pony, he is super chilled out and a lovely boy to have around. His little face cannot help but bring a smile to others!
Marmite- 14hh Cob X. 10 years old. Marmite has been with Sally, the owner, since he was 24hrs old, and he does sometimes forget that he is a pony and not a human! He's come on a lot in his education and training in the last year and is proving to be a useful riding school pony. *Due to some ongoing health and training issues, we have decided to take Marmite out of the riding school for a while but he is still at Greenways enjoying a less stressful way of life*
Pepper- 14.2hh Cob. 20 years old. Pepper is the perfect armchair ride and great for beginners and nervous riders as she takes life at her own steady pace. Pepper is often the first horse our new clients will ride as she is great for lunge lessons due to her easygoing nature. She also loves taking clients hacking.
Taisy- 15hh Connemara. 13yrs old. Taisy is our "unicorn pony". Everybody (and we mean everybody!) loves him, making him 100% our most popular team member. A great confidence giver and will turn his hooves to anything! So far Taisy has been involved in flatwork, dressage, XC, horseball, Polocrosse, modelling (for a well-known pony magazine...), hunter trials- you name it, he'll give it a go!
Other members of our Equine Team are: Charlie, Pixie and Phoenix.
