Our Horses

These are our horses, there are 15 of them here with us on the farm. You will be paired with one of them depending on your, and the horses riding experience. Have a look through their pictures and descriptions and see who you would like to ride and let us know when you book.

Kiara – Mama’s girl

Arab
14 years old
Lead mare

Kiara, the witch (but don’t tell her that), is my lead mare and only ridden by me or Neo. She can be very aloof but is the fast and furious on the trail.

Haakim – Kiara’s Brother

Arab
14 years old
Carries weight up to 70kg

A treat for the experienced rider, Haakim is gentle, sensitive and calm(for being an Arab) and mostly not nervous. He needs a rider with confidence that allows him the opportunity to explore and be on a long rein, but can be ridden even by beginners.

Blaze

Mixed breed
18 years old
Carries weight up to 50kg

Good old boy, loves to follow and knows his job, great for kids and light weight adults. Don’t mistake his short legs for stumps as this boy can have speed. Like most older people its his way or no way.

Angel 

Spicy SimoneArab x boerperd
15 years old
Carries weight up to 70kg

Angel can make beginners feel safe, giving experienced riders some fun. She is sensitive, responsive and very comfortable.

Sherlock

Arab

12 years old

Carries up to 75kg

Sherlock is very opinionated, doesn’t like young riders and will test you. An highly intelligent boy with a lovely nature, only suited for experienced, yet gentle riders.

 

Judah

Boerperd

7 years old

Carries up to 75kg

Another very special boy that we rescued. He prefers lady riders due to his past. Has super lovely gates and tons of fun. Should be ridden by intermediate riders that don’t bounce too much on his back.

 

Victoria Plumb – aka Floppy Ears

Friesian x Boerperd
5 years old
On a mayor holiday due to an injury.

Brillant beginners girl, totally in her own world, at leisure following along. The more energetic rider can get her into 4th and 5th gear, so don’t think she is lazy. Her motto: you want me to work, so you need to do the same! (And she doesn’t mean it badly.)

 

 

 

Rachel Rose – My Fairy 

DSC_0222~2Friesian
18 years old
Carries weight up to 90kg

Rachel should get spoilt rotten! She knows her job and she knows it well. She will give you all the confidence you need and make you feel like taking her home. She isnt the fastest of ladies but that can be forgiven as she is a fair age, size and breed. She is with us only until the end of season as a lend.

Sophie

Frisian

14 years old

Carries up to 90kg – and not even half a kg more!!!

This girl is with us till end of season only, borrowed to us by a friend. She is a special kind of lady. Her mom is Rachel. She is a real star and will make beginners and experienced people happy alike.

 

Hemmy

Cross Breed

20 years old

Carries up to 60kg

A wonderful old man, that is also just with us until end of season. He loves kids and won’t put a foot wrong then. Will tell you every shorter way home.

 

Berry

Appaloosa

5 years old

Carries up to 70kg

Also just with us until end of season. Super sweet girl with a spark. Only for very experienced riders, not because she is loosing her head, but due to us wanting her not to forget her schooling yet!

 

Franky

Nooitgedacht cross

4 years old

Carries up to 60kg

Franky just comes out of training and has been ridden by me only a few times so far. He will not be available for clients until winter minimum.

Arwyn

Frisian cross

15 years old

Carries up to 80kg

Arwyn is a rescue and has only recently started to put on weight. So far she has not done any trails. She might be starting this season as backup guide horse here and there.

 

Arthur

Percheron cross 

3 years old

This gorgeous boy is still unhandled and untrained, of course also a rescue. We are hoping that he will join us for Easter on the trails, for the experienced rider then. Will become a weight carrier.

 

Hazel

Clydesdale cross

6 years old

She is our latest rescue and also still untrained and not handled. Just as Arthur, we are hoping to welcome her to the trails in Easter. Of course then also just for the experienced rider at first, but will become a weight carrier.
