Name: McGregor, Born: 1993, Arrived at MRT: 2005, Gender: Gelding, Height: 14.2hh, Breed: Highland, Colour: Bay

Hey my name is MacGregor. My Show Name is MacGregor of Glenmuir but my friends just call me Mac.  A very big thank you to one of my sponsors, East Lothian-based MacGregor Healthcare Ltd (www.macgregorhealthcare.com) for helping us launch our ‘Sponsor a Pony’ campaign.  A perfect match!

I must say I am one handsome looking guy! I think my best features are my tail, dapples and my face. My worst feature is definitely my feet as they are small and make my bum look big!

Some of my favourite things are, treats and going to the beach where I can stretch my legs. Sometimes I try to have a bath in the sea!

Another thing I like to do is jump. I think I could jump for Scotland and without a doubt I would win the high jump at the Horse of the Year Show!

I do have to apologise to all the other Muirfield Riding Therapy ponies as I can be a bit grumpy, but its only because I worry about things.

Oh well I better go I’ve been talking for so long and there’s still so much hay to munch!

Our physiotherapists say:

MacGregor is used mainly for children now. He can be very forward. His active pace can be used to challenge a rider’s balance. His pace can also engage a rider with learning issues.

Our riders and volunteers say:

“MacGregor is the BEST!!!” (Rachel)

“I like the way he trots, he’s a happy horse.” (Thomas)

Have you ridden MacGregor? Tell us what you think – we’ll add your comment to his page!
