Meet the Horses


Eddie is a 16.1hh Irish Cob and although he is only 7, he is top dog in the herd. He is a great all-rounder in lessons but his favourite thing to do is have a lie down in his stable or share a haynet with his best mate Splash.  


Rose joined us in late 2020 and is our real life unicorn. She is 12 years old and 14.2hh. As you can see she is has the most gorgeous mane and is always being styled and pampered by our youngsters.


Joe is the biggest horse on the yard standing at 16.2hh, however, this Irish Cob is the sweetest, kindest soul. Joe’s caring nature transfers to his ridden work, he is great at caring for his rider and is a very sensitive horse in all aspects of his work.


Splash is a 10 year old superstar cob who is as happy on the lead rein as jumping a metre fence. He’s something of a celebrity here at Ebony and has had a few media appearances including Blue Peter, Hello Magazine and has even attended an event in a royal garden. In 2020 Splash won a prestigious Daily Mirror Animal Hero Award!


Poppet is the smallest on the yard at approximately 9hh but is actually the oldest of the group at 19. Although he doesn’t get ridden, he still has a very important job here at Ebony. His small size means he’s great for helping nervous young people get used to being around horses and ponies. 


Blossom is 14.1hh and 12 years old. She is the definition of small but mighty. She might only be a pony but boy can she fly, she absolutely loves jumping. In her previous life before she came to Ebony she has a super cute foal called Tigger.


Bailey joined our herd in 2020 and is a youngster at just 6 years old. He is a 15.2hh gelding and very sweet. Even though he is young he fast learner and has a great personality. He shares a stable with his best buddy Poppet.


Molly is 14.2hh and 8 years old. She belongs to one of our Yard Managers, Beatrice. She is very clever and has learnt how to beg for treats as well as lots of other tricks. Beatrice normally rides her bareback, even out on hacks round Brixton.
