Meet Our School Ponies
We have a wide variety of school ponies to suit our rides, from beginner to advanced, big or small. Each of them have their own fantastic personalities and we'd love you to meet them!
15.1hh - Thoroughbred - Dark Bay - Gelding - 26 Years old
The old man of the yard at 26 years old, ex eventer who knows the ropes and teaches the students advanced dressage. Trail leader on most outrides as nothing scares him and he knows all the routes so you never get lost. Loves attention and if ignored he might just bash his door down.
15.2hh - Thoroughbred - Bay - Mare - 10 years old
A true lady in all aspects. Looks after small children and adults alike. Always comes home with a ribbon at shows. Loves carrots and being lead around by children.
16hh - Chestnut – Gelding - 23 years old
A veritable gentleman. Still loves trail rides and looks after all his passengers!! Follows Amigo everywhere and gets very angry when Amigo goes out without him. He is a pure gentle giant and never puts a foot wrong.
15.2hh - Boerperd - Dapple Grey – Mare – 5 Years Old
At just 5 years old she has fitted into the Shepherd’s Fold Family so well. She may look a little bit intimidating as she is built like a tank but once you get to know this amazing mare you will realise she is super safe in the school and on trails. She is as sweet as apple pie.
13.2hh - Dunn – Mare - 6 years old
Pretty, pretty mare with oodles of talent. Fun and spunky in the school and out. Loves cuddles and will stand for hours just to receive some.
14.1hh - grey – mare - 15 years old
She is a super little pony that has been with us for 7 years. Great fun in the school and on trails. Amazing pony on lead and jumps like a dream. Do not under estimate this little girl. Loves rolling in the muddiest spots.
14.2hh – Grey – mare - 17 years old
Been there, done that. Never comes home without a ribbon and at her age is still winning at inter-schools- excellent all rounder and not scared of anything. She gives confidence to all her riders and loves her treats.
16hh - Thoroughbred - Bay Roan – Gelding - 12 years oldd
Imported from South America as a race horse but we believe he is most happy here at Shepherd’s Fold. Calm and patient and loves his job!
14.2hh – Boerperd - Dark Bay – Gelding - 17 years old
Our first riding school pony just 14 years ago. A schoolmaster and has taught hundreds of children to ride. He fooled us for many years thinking he could not jump!
14hh - Appaloosa – gelding - 8 years old
A honey pot of a pony. Loves to run around the other horses and stir trouble. Fantastic all rounder, a favourite at the yard.
14.3hh – Grey – Mare - 13 years old
Takes after her mother Merrylegs in most aspects. Her favourite is chewing children’s boots.
16.2hh - Thoroughbred - Grey – Gelding - 15 years old
Lively and keen, well schooled and honest. Has taught many riders the fun of dressage. He really enjoys his food so do not think of messing with his meal times as may get into lots of trouble.
15.2hh - grey – mare - 10 years old
. Pretty and clever and she knows it, she know all the tricks. She has taught many riders but don’t go near her stable without a carrot as she may not like you very much.
14hh – Piebald – mare - 17 years old
Been with us for many years, loves young children, knows the ropes and loves carrots.
15.2hh - Thoroughbred – Chestnut - Mare - 8 years old
She is a super little girl with lots of ability and spunk. She is great as a lead rein horse and more advanced riders. She is keen and quick at learning new things. She thinks big trucks are very scary but looks very pretty prancing around.
16.1hh – boerperd – bay – gelding - 5 years old
New to the yard and quickly proving a character all his own. A good leader on trails and lovely in the school. A big “strong” boy who loves the ladies.
