Horses

Bristol Horse Riding Stables

We believe that riding should be fun as well as excellent physical exercise, so it’s important to us that you ride a horse which is suited to your level of skill.

Our horses are special. Because of their RDA riding experience, they are incredibly patient with beginners and people coming back to riding after a break, but they all really enjoy the chance to be put through their paces by riders who are ready to go a bit further.

Mr Big

Mr Big

Big by name… but only 13.2Hh so pretty small by nature. He’s a beautiful palomino with the best eyes on the yard. One of our newer ponies, he’s really settling in well and is keen to work hard for his rider.

Bunty

Bunty

Bunty is a total legend! He’s a Norwegian Fjord Horse, which means that his distinctive markings will be familiar to fans of Disney’s Frozen. At 13.1Hh, he’s built like a miniature tank: he’ll really look after a nervous rider, but loves the chance to show off his skills and pace when given the chance.  He’s a wonderful dressage pony, and has won rosettes at RDA Regional and National level.

Barney

Barney

Dark brown Barney is a great all rounder, standing at 14.3Hh. He’s a quiet chap who’s never happier than hanging out with his bestie, Mr Big, and a big bag of hay. Yum!

Bertie

Bertie

15.2Hh black Bertie, who is one of our younger horses, is a real attention seeker in the stable. He loves to bang things around in there and throws his bowl out when it’s empty. Under the saddle, he’s good as gold and will work hard for you.

Charlie

Charlie

Charlie, who stands at 14.2Hh, has a really distinctive face. He’s piebald, with one blue eye. He’s such a gentle pony: super for beginners.

Choco

Choco

Cheeky Chappy Choco is a piebald of 14.1Hh. He’s great fun to be around with a real sense of humour. He’s an adventurous eater and loves nothing more than a bit of wild food foraging on a hack.

Spike

Spike

Spike stands at 13 Hh and is the most distinctive of our grey ponies, with his single black ear. He looks like a cutie, which makes you want to cuddle him, but actually, he doesn’t like to be crowded by people. Once under the saddle, he’s an excellent pony for beginners.

Frankie

Frankie

Frankie stands  at 12.3Hh and is a great fun ride for confident children. Like so many of our little grey ponies, he’s an absolute doll with beginners, too.

Baby

Baby For Web

Delicious strawberry roan, Baby (14.1Hh) is our wonderful new arrival. Not only is he a stunning pony, he’s settling in beautifully. Our riders are really enjoying him; he is patient with beginners and great fun for more advanced riders. He’s making fans among our riders and instructors alike. Plus look at him, he’s divine!
