Our Horses

Achilles

  • Born:  2004

  • Height: 16hh

  • Breed: Clydesdale x Welsh Cob Gelding

  • Bio: Achilles used to be agisted at Oakwood and when his owner had a change of lifestyle, Oakwood decided that he would be a very suitable school horse and he hasn’t looked back. He is extremely popular with everyone that rides him.

Benson

  • Born: 1998

  • Height: 16.2hh

  • Breed: Bay Thoroughbred Gelding

  • Bio: Benson came to Oakwood shortly before the move to the Meadows, straight from the race track. He is no longer the sleek racehorse but a well muscled and calm schoolie making him very versatile. He can also jump very well.

Boston

  • Born: 2004

  • Height: 15hh

  • Breed: Chestnut Crossbred Gelding

  • Bio: Boston was very green when he first arrived and quite a nervous horse.   Now, he goes so well that he tends to win our School Horse of the Year Competition every year.

Buddy

  • Born: 2004

  • Height: 13.2 hh

  • Breed: Quarter horse

  • Bio:  Buddy came to us from a Pony Club home where all the kids had grown up and moved on to bigger horses.  He’s a “been there, done that” pony and is a very welcome member of the team.

Charles

  • Born: 1997

  • Height: 16.3hh

  • Breed: Brown Thoroughbred Gelding

  • Bio: Charles came to the school in February 2008 as a fairly seasoned young rider’s event horse. He had sustained an injury on a hind leg and unfortunately can no longer jump. However, he has a lot to teach and is good for our intermediate and experienced riders.

Jay

  • Age: 1993

  • Height: 15.2hh

  • Breed: Brown Thoroughbred Gelding

  • Bio: Jay has been at the new Oakwood since we opened.   He was agisted here for many years and when his owners decided to look for a new home for him, we were delighted to welcome him into the Oakwood family as a full time Schoolie.
