Paco is one of our longest serving Ravelrig RDA horses with 12 years’ service under his girth.

Even though he likes his personal space, over the years he has helped numerous riders gain confidence and improve their riding.

Paco is probably the most intelligent horse at Ravelrig and often the gang leader when it comes to any mischief the herd might get up to.

Over recent months he has been schooled in keeping an outline, which helps both him and his rider, with balance and looking more majestic than he already is.

Some volunteers have given him the nickname “Donkey” from the movie Shrek, as they think he looks like Donkey when he transforms into a grey stallion – what do you think?

Born: 2001

Height: 15.2hh
