Animal Courses Chesterfield


A 14.3Hh Skewbald gelding. A very very very popular little chap!!! Kai has been backed since he came to us and is now going very well both on the flat, over poles and out on the roads. He is such a kind, friendly and genuine pony who always puts 110% into everything asked of him. He is now being ridden by a select few advanced students and will soon be proving himself in the riding school. 


A 15.3Hh Bay mare. Roxy is Izzy's (Traceys daughter) new horse. Roxy has settled in very well with us and Izzy is doing a fab job with her! The two of them have a great partnership and have been off out about to cross country clinics, show jumping training and competitions, dressage clinics, sponsored rides and are hoping to hunt next season. Roxy is also being used in the school for lightweight, experienced adults.   

Thomas the HorseThomas 

A 12.1Hh grey gelding. Although now retired Thomas is certainly keeps us all on our toes with his super cheeky attitude to life!! He has perhaps got more mischievous the older he has got!! He now lives a life of luxury out in the paddock with his friends.

A 13.3Hh dark bay gelding. Another pony well worth his weight in gold.

Still quite capable of showing us his cheeky personality, Magic is a talented little chap!

Penny the HorsePenny

A 15.2Hh dark bay mare. Used mainly in our student sessions and advanced riding lessons Penny is a sweet but slightly more complex member of the centre. Her level of education has been greatly improved over the last 18 months and is now used in the school much more regularly and is proving a fantastic project for the students. Used for flatwork and jumping lessons, Penny is definitely a much loved challenge for the more experienced rider.
