Our horses and ponies are very special. They are chosen carefully to ensure they have the right temperament for the job, and are specially trained to safely carry and respond to riders with disabilities.

Why not sponsor a pony? Your sponsorship will help people with disabilities to experience riding and trap driving with support from our highly trained Calvert Trust staff and stables volunteers. If you wish to do this please see the link at the bottom of the page for more information.
