If you would like to support the Mid Cheshire group, why not think about adopting a pony? Several of the ponies we use are available under our ‘Adopt a Pony’ scheme. The cost of adoption is £25 per year, which helps toward the cost of of looking after our ponies. As we’re sure you appreciate, stabling, feed, vet care, shoes and the general upkeep of a pony isn’t cheap. As our Charity relies on donations, your contribution helps to keep us running.
In exchange for your annual Adoption Subscription, you will recieve a Certificate of Adoption, an informative newsletter and a Christmas card from all our adoptive ponies. Best of all, you can visit your Adoptive Pony anytime (but please, please call first to arrange that visit – we’d hate for him to be out in the field or something!)
Link (or to use his ‘Sunday; name, Nashend Linkwood) is our handsome dun Highland pony. He has been a fully fledged member of our Charity for 12 years and is very popular with just about everybody that has ever had the chance to ride him.
Link is 14.3hh, and as well as being excellent on the lead rein he also competes in side saddle competitions, winning many rosettes and trophies. In the winter he grows a super fluffy coat and is like a big teddy bear!
Quinn is a 15hh skewbald pony. He is one of our younger ponies, and his great pleasures in life are his haynet and playing in the field.
Quinn is very reliable, calm and talented. A good all-rounder, he can turn his hoof to most things – he is especially good on the Countryside Challenge course!
Pip, or Philip, if you use his ‘Sunday name’, is super friendly and loves the attention that he receives from our younger riders. He has been a member of our Charity since we bought him a couple of years now.
Standing at around 13hh, Pip is a very capable pony who will take his riders happily along off or on the lead rein. Like Link, those who ride him regularly are totally in love with him!
If you’re looking for an absolutely unflappable pony, Ted is your man! He is gentle, patient and kind, and loves fuss.
At 15hh he is a great favourite with many of our riders and it’s easy to see why. Although many of you will know Ted well as a member of New Barn, he has recently transferred over to our charity and we couldn’t be more delighted!
