Best friends with Zara.
Bashful or Bash for short
Height: Around 15 hands (roughly 153 cms)
Personality: Sensitive, kind, loving, gentle and responsive. Can be forward moving and doesn't need much to respond to what you are asking him to do. He likes it best when riders use their body language to guide him and can take most abilites. He is the 'grandfather' of the herd and in his older years enjoys observing what is going on without getting too involved in the games played within the group when they are in the paddock together.
Born: Around 2006
Height: Around 14 hands (roughly 142 cms)
Personality: Keen to get to know his riders and enjoys being a part of what is going on. He is reasonably forward moving and can be cheeky occasionally but it is easy to get him back on task. At first his trot can feel bouncy, he was a pacer so can default to this sometimes, but does smooth out after a while and he has a beautiful 'rocking horse' canter. Best friends with Zara and Ollie. Can take all abilities.
Height: 13 hands (132 cms)
Personality: Pixie can be cheeky at times and has a gentle walk but can get excited when going at the faster paces as well as when jumping. She is a comic and sometimes joins in when a rider on another equine team member is cantering around outside the arena. Great for those who would like to take a pony further in their horsemanship journey or learn the basics. Pixie Is at the bottom of the herd order and can get pushed around by the others particularly when it comes to food.
Height: Around 15 hands (about 153 cms)
Personality: Zara can be a little stand-offish at first (this comes from her previous experiences in life) but is a genuinely sweet, smart and kind natured girl. She can get bossy sometimes thinking that she knows best so can need firm but fair leadership to get the best out of her. She can be a little quick with her strides in trot, canter as well as jumping but is beginning to balance herself more most of the time. She is good friends with Ollie and Lucky. These 3 are affectionately know as the 3 musketeers, also the top 3 in the herd hierarchy !!!
Breed: Gypsy Cob/Welsh

His favourite thing in life is food so he will never be thin !! Has has a good knowledge of the ground games and ridden side of life. Currently 4th in the herd order but is trying hard to get to the top and be the boss of the herd all the time !!!
