Came from a private owner, who mostly hacked him, in April 2015.
Rhuben has two personas; a soggy armchair, who will plod and wobble somewhat, and a sprightly dressage pony!

He is very responsive to a rider’s organisation and in particular their narrowness and use of boards (for those who know what they are). In many respects he is quite ‘green and unbalanced’, but continues to grow in strength.

“Karin, thank you so much for teaching me how to ride. Having spent 30 years and thousands of pounds on lessons, being confused and never feeling in control, i.e. always anxious and not really enjoying riding.

I found you and after only a handful of lessons, where you’ve explained everything so clearly and identified several reasons why I haven’t been in control.

Today’s lesson was great and I feel for the first time in my life that I’m riding, more in control and loving it… if only I’d found you all those years ago.

Now back to my breathing and my riding hat!”Louise
