Monty came to Wildwoods as a 5 year old. During his 19 years with us he has been a model riding school horse and taken beginner riders of all ages, risen to the challenge of severley autistic riders, taken riders miles on the Downs and surrounding countryside, has done showjumping and x-country, competed jumping and showing, and taught Western.

He has recently retired to my friends farm at Banstead on loan to Jo Morrison, one of our young riders, who will care for him in his retirement. Little Tom, who has been diagnosed with severe arthritis, aged just six, has gone with him as a field companion.

Happy retirement Monty!
