Riverbend Harris

Barbara and Sally went to collect our new recruit, Riverbend Harris, who will be known as Harris, in mid July to bring him back to his new home here at Ravelrig RDA.

We were able to purchase Harris thanks to a generous grant from the Pentland Neighbourhood Partnership, which has brought our number of ponies back up to eight.   Harris is still young, at just 4 years old and is 13.1 hands, so a great size for our smaller riders.

He is an Eriskay, which is an endangered breed and is quickly settling in the Ravelrig family, meeting the other horses, riders and volunteers.  He is a gentle soul with a cheeky edge to him and loves to be involved in everything.

He is going off for some intensive training to prepare him for his life as an RDA pony and we are all looking forward to welcoming him back for a long happy time at Ravelrig.
