A few of the ponies who are part of our Northington Stables family.



Hi I’m Ben, a big gentle giant. Being one of the bigger horses at Northington I’m used mainly for hacking and for adult lessons. I love jumping and being fussed over and I can be a bit of a klutz sometimes.


Hi I’m Freddie, you will probably see me a lot here as I take part in lots of lessons and pony days. I can be very cheeky sometimes but I love children and love lots of fuss, I even get painted in spooky designs at Hallowe’en!


Hola! My name is Lola and I'm a......very pretty girl who joined Northington back in the summer. I'm very sweet and friendly but can be a little shy sometimes.



Hi my name is Magic, I'm small and rather round but I'm very cute! I used to belong to a lovely little girl but I was a bit too sassy for her so I'm now part of the Northington gang.


Hi I’m Marmite, everyone loves me and nobody hates me. I get used for the bigger children and small adults here at Northington. I came from a trekking centre originally and have settled very nicely into riding school life.


Hi there, I’m Merlin. I have become a firm favourite with the children here at Northington and I really enjoy my lessons and pony days. What do you notice that’s different about me? I’ll give you a hint…have a look at my eyes next time you see me.


Hi I’m Monkey, although I don’t need much of an introduction as I’m very well known and THE favourite at Northington. I take part in everything here from being painted on Hallowe’en to dressing up as Rudolph at Christmas and I love it! Do you know what my show name is? If not ask a member of staff next time you come to visit.


Hi I’m Murphy, I'm a very kind and loving boy and everyone always tells me what a good boy I am! I really like jumping especially going out cross country.


Hey! I'm Nina, you may not have seen much of me as I'm currently just used for lead rein lessons. I have made lots of new friends since being here though and I can't wait to meet you!


Hi I’m Pudding also known as ‘Pud Puds’ and I’m the speediest pony of them all! I’m super cheeky and like to nip the staff at any given opportunity. I am very affectionate though and love lots of fuss.


Hi I’m Rufus. I’m another favourite here at Northington! I used to be Lucy’s pony when she was young but since she has outgrown me, I am now a popular riding school pony who takes part in lots of lessons and pony days.


Hello, I'm Sally. I'm fairly new to the Northington family but you have probably seen me in some lessons. I have made good friends with Solly my field mate and am really enjoying my new home. Come and say hi when you are next here!



Hiya, my name is Soldier but everyone calls me Solly. I’m renowned for being quite slow and lazy when I want to be and you will often see Fran chasing me around the arena to get me moving a bit quicker. I can move fast when I want to though and I absolutely love going hacking.



Hello, I’m Theo. I’m one of the bigger horses here so I get used for the adults and bigger children in lessons and camps. I’m very friendly and love everybody, I will also go searching through your pockets to see if you have a tasty treat hidden away.



Hello I’m Wafer, I’m one of the older ponies here at Northington but still love my lessons and pony camps. Did you know that I’m completely blind in my left eye? Have a look next time you see me to see if you can notice the difference.
