Our horses

Here is an introduction to some of the HorsePower Riding Academy (HPRA) horses and ponies. We plan to add more about HPRA’s other horses.

Rocky and Snowy

Rocky and Snowy are two small grey ponies used by small children learning to ride.

Rosie

Rosie was a rescue horse, after not doing well enough as a racehorse. Sandie found her when she was 5-years-old, and Rosie has developed and matured into a sweet-16, willing schoolmaster, who eagerly helps intermediate to advanced riders develop their riding.
