The ponies are the tools of our work. We depend on them, we couldn’t operate without them and it is the ponies who the children love. They do a magnificent job and bring great happiness and benefit to the children.
Before we take ponies on, we have them on trial to see if they like RDA work, fit in with our regime and the other ponies. They have to be very special horses, very well behaved, patient and kind. They are difficult to source and we are lucky to have such magnificent team.
Our Stable Manager, Danielle, and our Pony Trustee, Clare, have now got a good team of ponies together. They seem to be happy and are all working well.
All of Newbury RDA’s horses and ponies are microchipped and freezemarked.
