Meet the Horses - Our 'Teachers'

We don't like to give too much away about the horses so you'll find out more about them when you meet them.  For now, here are some pictures of the herd.

Past Teachers

Harvey Moon


Harvey came to Hannah, Sue and Naomi in 2003 and taught them many lessons during the thirteen years he spent with them.  He was retired from riding in 2010 and he was very poorly that winter and into the spring/summer of 2011.  He seemed to pick up once New Horizons was started as if doing ground work with learners gave him a 'purpose' once more.

He was an asset to our team and was favoured among many of our learners and we love listening to the tales that they still tell of him.


Harvey always struggled with his weight and we sadly said goodbye to him on 12th April 2016, two days after his 32nd birthday.

Savannah Apache (Patch)


Patch joined the New Horizons team in September 2017 on loan from a good friend to live out his retirement.  He was an immediate favourite among our learners with his cheeky character and would happily stand for hours to be groomed.


During the long, wet 2017/18 winter, Patch's condition started to deteriorate and we, with insight and assistance from the vet, did all we could to keep weight on him and keep him going.  We wanted him to at least be able to enjoy the summer after the hard winter and we were somewhat successful with that.  Many learners had fun making his huge feeds and listening to him wickering at them to hurry up! 


Unfortunately in the middle of August, when the rain started, his condition worsened yet again and the sad decision had to be made.  The New Horizons staff and Patch's human mum were all with him to say goodbye on 24th August 2018.
