ARCHIE 15.2hh Born in 2006

 Hello, my name is Archie. I’m a 15.2hh black Irish Cob and I was born in 2006.

I‘ve joined Epsom RDA on a permanent loan (a bit like a professional footballer!) as my owner was not able to ride anymore. In the past I’ve done lots of different horsey things like cross-country, show jumping and hacking.

At Epsom RDA I am learning how to do dressage. Dressage is a bit like pilates for horses.It helps me keep supple and strong so I am in the best possible condition to help my disabled riders. And I still get to go out on hacks.

My volunteers say they like me because I am so calm and gentle, and they like my “Archie hugs”.
