Maple (originally Magpie) was exchanged with the dealer for Comet, who was not going to work out as a riding school horse. Maple was initially ridden and trained by the staff, as she is a young pony. Below she is escorting a hack with Natalie Rice.
Hayley Green (pictured above) has been schooling her as a project and she has now settled well to work in the school – even with our young Pony Clubbers!
Maple made friends with Willow who arrived from the same dealer a few months earlier.
