Polo (Silver Hills Regency)

Polo is an 11 year old warmblood mare who definitely thinks she's a princess! She has been doing pony club with Eva and is now doing some dressage and going out on trail rides. Polo is in love with Nemo, perhaps she thinks he is her baby..


Molly is a 16hh, 13yo Arabian - Warmblood Mare. She has had an eventful career, competing in working equitation, dressage and participated in liberty and bison clinics, mechanical cow workshops and even went droving!


Alfie is a 6 year old registered stockhorse; he's only fairly new to the team and settling in but gets on with everyone and has a lovely temperament. 


Nemo is a 16 year old miniature pony, a recent addition who has won hearts all around with his cute character and looks. He loves being brushed and cuddled and having a fuss made of him. He is a great confidence builder as he is loves being around people, especially if they come with carrots.

Neve (Little Miss Tammy's Diva)

Also known as naughty Neve!

She is a 6 year old paint bred mare from Sydney and is very opinionated and a real character, you can't help but love her personality.


Ollie is a gentle giant who loves attention and food, he is a 16.2hh 18yo warmblood gelding who is semi retired and waiting to meeting new people to give him lots of attention. He loves being bathed and brushed and fussed over in general.


Daisy is a beautiful 14.2hh 13yo stock horse/ quarter horse cross mare. Her kind and gentle nature makes her the perfect horse to gain confidence and connect.
