Northington Stud and Stables Newsletter – May 2016

Northington

Well May got off to a rather busy start with the launch of our new website www.northingtonstudandstables.com Since then we’ve been up to all sorts with our half term Pony day another roaring success too.

Out and About

We’ll be out and about in June at various events so do come and say hello.  We’re at the Avington Fete on 26th June and one of our gift vouchers for both a child and adult lesson will be auctioned off as part of Micheldever Fete’s silent auction on 17th June.  Make sure you enter if you’re local to Micheldever!  You may have seen us on The Grange Estate’s website too.

LIVERY

We currently have 2 full liveries available.  Please let Fran know if you might be interested or think you might know anyone who is.  All details about livery costs can be found on our Livery page.

Pony of the month

We’re going to be sharing some of our ponies in a new Pony of the Month slot each newsletter.

This month is Jess’ turn.  She’s a gorgeous girl who is looking for someone to rent her.  Jess is a 14hh bay mare, 7 yrs old and has a kind temperament. Although she’s not suitable for beginners, she would make a cracking pony for a competent child.

If you’re looking to rent a pony, don’t forget to take a look at Our Ponies page to see which ponies are available to rent.

PONY NEWS

Two of our lovely ponies are looking for a new permanent home, Blueberry and Ebony May.

Blueberry isn’t rideable but could be a project for someone who has the time to give her.  She has been to shows, led by hand, and placed in the first six so she has plenty of potential.  She is good with children and a doddle to lead and handle.  She’d make a great companion pony too.
EbonEbonyy May is a beautifully bred Dartmoor 11.2hh black mare.  She is 9 yrs broken and needs a competent rider to take her to shows and have fun with her.  In truth, Ebony is rather too good for the riding school environment and needs an owner who can maximise her potential.  Bred by Queenie Padwick, Ebony is looking for a 5* home.
All enquiries regarding Blueberry and Ebony should be addressed to  Fran.

Scotty is back from pony bootcamp and going well.  It’s lovely to have him back at the yard and we look forward to seeing him go from strength to strength.

Pink Ponies

HavenWe’re going to be running a PINK DAY fundraiser at Northington Stud and Stables in aid of The Haven which offers care and support to those with and affected by breast cancer.  Lucy is determined to paint all our ponies PINK but we need your help.  So we’re thinking that for every £75 raised, we’ll paint one of our ponies pink, from head to foot.  We’re keen to get you involved too, taking pictures of the yard all decked out in pink, pink ponies, pink riders – the lot – and sharing on social media.  There’ll be plenty of glitter involved too.  The more money we raise, the more ponies we can paint pink for the day!  Please let Fran know if you’d like to get involved.  We’ll be sharing the date for our PINK DAY shortly.
