All of our ponies are very special animals who enable us to do our wonderful work.

Bramble is a Cob Pony. He puts his past experience as a pony club pony to good use at Gaddesden. He loves to participate in the games and activities that our riders take part in. His pony club days may be over, but he still loves to hack out.

Angus is a Highland Pony . He is a sturdy and very gentle fellow, although sometimes a bit stubborn. He has a fantastic gait which provides excellent therapeutic benefits for our riders. When not working, he loves to roll in the mud, much to the dismay of volunteer groomers.

Blue is a grey Connemara. He has been a bit of an all rounder with his time and is particularly good at giving confidence which makes him perfect for us. He also really enjoys rolling in the muddiest bit of the field he can find so trying to keep him clean certainly keeps our volunteers busy.

Bill is the youngest member of the Gaddesden team so is learning all about RDA from our more experienced ponies. Bills smaller size and even gait makes him perfect for our younger and first time riders. He is keen to learn and is settling in well to his new life with RDA
Our ponies work very hard 5 days a week to provide a unique experience for their riders and in return we are dedicated to giving them the best possible care - if you would like to support us in this please see details of our Pony Sponsorship scheme in more detail.
