Where do they come from?

Annie – our oldest pony

Where do we get our horses and ponies from? There is a rumour going around that Her Majesty The Queen provided one of our horses – we couldn’t possibly comment. Other than to say to say “thank you ma’am”. Some of our horses have come to retire at the Rangers, some of them can now only do light work or have weight restrictions. We have found through many years of experience that older horses tend to settle in best with us. This is due to the fact that they do very little during the week then are used for a few rides over the weekend. It is not enough work for younger horses but perfect for those who have ‘been there and done that’ and are looking for a quieter life.

Getting older…

As they get older some are very good at allowing the Rangers to groom them and practice all their newly learned skills – tacking up etc. Some of the horses we have bought and some are on loan from their generous owners. There is only one requirement that we stipulate for any horse joining us, they must be rock solid and have an excellent temperament.

New horses

We are always on the lookout for new horses to join our herd.  If you have a horse or pony which you think would enjoy being a part of Windsor Horse Rangers then please contact us.  We are happy to take horses on full loan or buy them (preferably after a trial period to check they are suitable for us).  They must be suitable for novices and like children
