Beautiful Ava!  A dapple grey Irish Sport Horse and like so many of this breed, Ava is lively bold and intelligent. Ava is lovingly called ‘Long Legs’. Good for cantering from walk or from halt! Keeps everyone on their toes especially as she can jump fields.  A little bossy in the herd!  She is kind and gentle and loves a good groom. Silky soft coat. Loves her hay and eats very quick!   Ava always rips every rug she wears!

The Riding Centre is an independent charity. Your sponsorship helps us raise funds so that we can continue to provide horse riding opportunities for disabled children and adults.


Your sponsorship goes towards caring for the ponies.  We give the best care we can. The ponies have regular shoeing, dental, physiotherapy, saddle checks, vaccinations, veterinary visits, feeds, bedding, grooming, rugs, tack replacements and so on.  We need your support to continue this care.


The Riding Centre has run on the same site in Holcombe for over 50 years!  Support the charity and help the sounds of hooves and laughter continue for many years to come!


Get started! It is easy to sponsor! Your new best friend is just a few clicks away!
