Learning to Ride

People often ask me why I have a miniature horse, Mini Hop aka the Rock Star on my farm. Actually he is one of the most important horses here among the Internationally famous event super star, Mashantum who was long listed for the Atlantic Olympic Games in 1996, his stablemate Indiana Jones an up and coming Event super star and Explorer 007 aka Bond who is an emerging Grand Prix Dressage horse. Mini, as he is affectionally called, is the horse who introduces the youngest generation to the world of the horse. He is a wonderful teacher giving confidence and great pleasure to his young riders.


He is shown here taking Alex, a four year old equestian for a hack around the paddocks. Some days they climb the steps to the house entering through the front door to take a tour to the kitchen where many treats await him.
