Meet Our Equines
Tango was born in 2011 and our resident clown! He was donated to us in 2020 and is a Welsh Mountain x Arab. He has a very engaging personality. He has a very active brain so we are constantly thinking up new ideas to challenge him. He doesn't enjoy standing still, but he does love jumping and anything that gives him attention. He is a favorite of many of our students.
Maxi was born in 2014 and is the smallest of our equine team. He loves attention, is not phased by anything and will do any activity you point him at. He is good at escaping his paddock and loves going for a run or jumping.
He is a one-in-a-million pony!
Geronimo was born in 2003 approximately. He was donated to us in 2019 and wasn't in the best condition. After lots of tender love and care he is now a happy, cruisy fellow who loves to be part of our activities.
Lacey was born in 2006 and arrived at the farm in March 2022. She is a minature pony and was kindly gifted to us. Lacey is a very fast learner. She loves her equine friends and always gives a quiet neigh to them when they walk by. She has a very young, gentle spirit which makes her a popular choice among students.
Soda & Huey were born approximately 2000 and came to us from a petting zoo that closed down in 2012. As far as we know they have been together their whole lives. Soda loves being cuddled and brushed (his favourite is ear massages) He is also very talented at stealing lunches!
Huey & Soda came to us from a petting zoo that closed down. As far as we know they have been together their whole lives. Huey has a special love for children and he loves going for walks on the farm. To most people's surprise, he can and will canter over small jumps if given the opportunity but he's not a fan of water!
Cinnamon was born in 2005. She is a Kaimanawa, but we are unsure when she was mustered. She is owned by staff member Heidi and is on lease to us as a riding pony. Heidi describes her personality as "sweet and spicy", hence her name! She is a little cheeky but loves attention and adventures.
Blue was born in 2019 and arrived beginning of 2023. He is a Timor x and one of our smaller ponies. He didn't have the best start to his life and this, combined with the fact he is so young, means he doesn't have a lot of life experience. Currently he is in training with Rosie and Heidi who are unlocking his potential and hopefully turning him into a dream pony for the farm!
Trinity was born in 2013 and arrived beginning of 2023. Her breeding is Raglan Kaori Bush and she is one of our small ponies. She is the boss of the smaller equines and enjoys reminding them of this fact! She loves adventures and anything that keeps her brain thinking.
