Name: Raiden, Born: 2006, Arrived at MRT: 2012, Gender: Gelding, Height: 14.1hh, Breed: Irish Cob, Colour: Dapple Grey

Hello everyone, good to meet you. I just want to say straight away, I’m not the youngest pony at Muirfield Riding Therapy anymore, that title belongs to Charity who lives in ‘The Girls’ field opposite my field, ‘The Boys’!

I am a happy fellow. I love being in the field with my pony friends but sometimes I get a bit bossy, they soon let me know though! I am quite big and my riders say I am nice and comfortable to trot on. I am actually quite fast too.

My carers say I am a big softie with a lovely face and handsome dappled coat. I really enjoy meeting many characters out and about and getting a pat, and usually a word about how handsome I am. Aw, thanks guys!

Our physiotherapists say:
Raiden is used for adults and children. He has a pronounced three-dimensional movement which means he can decrease high tone in his rider when he walks slower and increase low tone in his rider if he walks fast.

Our riders and volunteers say:
“I like the way Raiden moves and I feel really tall when I ride”
“I like his colour and how smooth his coat is”
“I like trotting on Raiden, it’s hard work on my legs but it’s fun!”
“One of his funniest tricks is how he picks up his feed bucket (once he’s devoured the contents!) and carries it around with him – he once carried his bucket all the way back to his field!”
“He has to check out EVERY item in the world with his mouth ‘just in case’ it might be edible – loves his food just TOO MUCH! I can’t leave saddles, rugs, ANYTHING in his reach!”
