Riding school pony

Hi my name is Archie and I am in training to join the riding centre team. I am a clever and intelligent wee guy but am still learning the ropes of what it means to be a team member in the riding centre. Lucky for me I have the awesome staff at WRRC to help me with this! It won’t be long before I’m helping teach clients but until I get to that point don’t be afraid to come and say hello, I’m very friendly and love nothing more than a scratch and a snack!

I care a lot about my fellow riding centre ponies and make sure they don’t forget me by calling out when I am on my own.

Riding school / Trek pony

Hello my name is Freeman and I am 30 years young. I have been at WRRC since day one and have lost count of how many children I have taken for their first ever pony rides! In my prime I have been to in hand shows, loved racing the big TB’s and my mates out in the trekking area and spending time in the arena. Now as I’m getting a bit older, I only come out of the paddock for a pony ride on the odd occasion. I will however always come over for a good scratch, a cuddle and a snack!
