Six year old Oreo has been with us for well over a year now and has made friends with the herd, inventing a new game of “tossing the poo bags and scattering the contents!”

He enjoys clowning around with the other ponies, but seems content to remain at the bottom of the pecking order when coming in for breakfast.

He enjoys his work as an RDA pony and as he is fairly small (14.2hh) and of a finer build than most of the ponies, he is particularly suited to the smaller riders.  He is an intelligent pony who is willing to learn and respond to instruction in the arena and also enjoys being hacked out whenever possible.  Oreo’s glossy black coat is much admired although he prefers to be groomed by only one person at a time.

Oreo was bought with money donated by The Wooden Spoon, the Scottish Rugby Charity.
