Cooper, who is Thoroughbred X Welsh Mountain, is a 14.3hh former Show Hunter Galloway and a place-winner at the Royal Melbourne Show. He competed under the name ‘Cheraton Moonwalker’, winning the prestigious title of Western Port Dressage Club Horse of the Year in 2005. He has also accrued many championship wins in EFA Dressage, Pony Club, Interschool competitions as well as many Agricultural Show Championships.. An attractive and confident chestnut with a white blaze and socks, Cooper is as lovely to look at as he is to ride (which he definitely knows). Like Glen, Cooper is particularly good to ride if you wish to concentrate on your position or technique. Being half pony, Cooper has a slightly cheeky personality, and although he’s a great athlete, he is certainly very food-oriented, so it’s important never to forget his treat!
Bronson is a 13.3hh Haflinger pony. Bronson is the most beautiful looking pony with big stocky legs, so don’t let his height fool you he can take on the older taller riders aswell due to his build. Bronson is happy to plod around on the lazier side for beginners but if you are able to challenge him and push him on he is great fun for that more confident rider aswell.
Milo is a 14hh Buckskin Gelding. Milo is great for beginners up to intermediate riders, he loves to keep his riders safe! Milo’s favourite thing to do is jump and go for bareback rides.

Her official name being Habafield Spritely Lass, Sprite is a 14hh bay New Forest Pony.
