Name: Johnny, Born: 2006, Arrived at MRT: 2016, Gender: Gelding, Height: 14.2hh, Breed: Connemara, Colour: Grey
Hi, I’m Johnny and I came to Muirfield Riding Therapy thanks to the generosity of the family of one of my Riders, Robert. Robert’s Dad Colin works for Bouygues UK (www.bouygues-uk.com) and they very kindly funded my arrival. I’m fieldmates with Raiden and Uist, we are ‘The Boys’!
I love working with my Riders in the Arena and out on the Farm trails when the weather is sunny. I’m quite tall, but not too wide so I’m perfect for our teen and young adult riders.I’m quite tall, but not too wide so I’m perfect for our teen and young adult riders. I don’t like the rain much, so if it’s a wet day I can often be found staying nice and dry in my field shelter!
Our physiotherapists say:
“Johnny is used for adults and children. He has been very well schooled in his past life. His movement is smooth. His good manners mean that he is an ideal pony for riders to begin independent riding i.e. off the lead rein”
Our riders and volunteers say:
“Johnny is THE most adorable pony. He’s kind, gentle and reliable in many ways both with me as his Sharer but also with our Riders. I get to see him with our Friday Session Riders and they love him too.”
“Johnny can sniff out a treat in your pockets and has even learnt how to unzip my pocket!!! What a clever pony!”
“Johnny is cool. He’s a special horse. I like riding him lots. I feel like a king because he’s always in front.”
