Tonto has been with Ravelrig since he was a yearling, having been bought by Barbara at the Appleby Horse Fair.
Tonto is currently the smallest pony at Ravelrig. He is a beautiful pony, with his long flowing mane and feathers, short neck and perky ears. In the winter months he sports the most magnificent moustache.
Tonto is brilliant at his job as an RDA pony. He is unfazed by lots of volunteers around him when his rider needs assistance. For riders learning to be more independent he is responsive to their riding aides.
Tonto is also a joy in the stable yard, where he can be trusted to teach children about grooming and Pony Care. His smaller size also makes learning to tack up a bit easier for beginners.
Tonto works very hard at his job as an RDA pony, so it is lovely to see him off duty, when he gets a chance to show that he can be a cheeky little pony and a fast one too.
