Sophie is a thirteen year old Shetland who was born with severely capped hocks so has never been able to be ridden. She was hand reared and is very, very friendly towards humans and other ponies. Her owners, who love her to bits, were unable to keep her which is why she has come to us. Sophie’s capped hocks do not hinder her galloping about and when we introduced her into the Shetland’s field she took them all for several circuits of the field flat out. There was no chasing just an exuberant need to gallop and have fun. The other ponies have totally accepted her and Rambler is very pleased to have another lady join his herd! The Shetlands are stars of our Learning With Horses therapy and we believe that Sophie will be an extremely useful addition to the team.
