MEET THE ANIMALS
Jack is a cuddly 16 y/o chestnut Quarter Horse gelding who has been Gillian's teaching partner for the past 8 years. He has since retired as a school horse so that he can concentrate his time and energy doing fun things with Gillian such as hacking, side saddle riding, attending clinics, and just being a general goof ball.
Hudson is a 24+ y/o bay Morgan x Clydesdale gelding dressage school master. Gillian has worked with Hudson and his previous owner for the past 8 years and is thrilled to welcome him to Slieve Bloom Farm where he will live out his retirement.
Rumpy is the newest member to the herd. He is a 12.1 hh bay pony who has the patience of a saint. He loves his food and nickers at you when it is feeding time. He is also living out his life in retirement teaching Gillian's youngest son how to ride.
Rufus is a 11 y/o standard donkey standing at 9.2 hh. He came to live with us in Jan 2018 as a companion for Jack, Rumpy, and Hudson. He is very friendly and extremely lovable. Rufus always makes sure to remind us that it is meal time.
