Meet The Ponies




West Hill Pony Max

Max is a very sweet pony, who always gives the best cuddles! His favourite thing to do is jumping over the cross-country fences we have in the field.

Gender: Gelding

Height: 13.2 hh

Age: 12

Colour: Black

Breed: Cob

Favourite food: Apples

Fun fact: Max can look very different every time you see him! Max has to have a clip (shave) every couple of months because he gets so hairy. He may look like a fluffy bear one day, and then a freshly clipped show dog the next.
