Pip is a shetland pony, who was kindly gifted to us in 2023.
He has already very successfully taken part in our ‘Tea with a Pony’ non-riding therapy session and made lots of new friends, and he will be enjoyed by the smallest of our participants.
He is very typical of his breed and just looks like he has come out of an illustration from one of the Thelwell books. As is quite often the case with the smaller breeds, Pip needs to be carefully managed to prevent him from getting laminitis, so he lives with Lily as is unable to have access to grass.
Although it took Lily a little bit of time to get used to Pip’s arrival, this has not phased Pip and now the two of them are great companions.
