Our Horses

Our special herd of horses is our greatest asset. Without them we have no service to offer.  We select them with the greatest of care, spare nothing to look after them and we love them to  bits. In return they give us everything they have

Meet our herd of very special horses...

Luke

Luke

Luke is a bit of a cutie; a 13hh skewbald pony kindly leased to us by coach Rhiannon. He is a firm favourite, particularly with our younger riders. Luke is generously sponsored by the Rotary Club of Samford Valley.

Peter Pan

Peter Pan

Peter Pan is a sturdy 14 year old stock/quarter horse cross. He is a very affectionate and curious boy who adores people. He is also quite mischievous and likes to scatter the contents of his grooming kit about and nibble on anything else that comes within range! Peter Pan is generously sponsored by Samford Patchworkers.

Promise

Promise

Promise is an imposing 15hh bay Clydesdale cross mare, owned by Samford RDA. Promise has a background as a hippotherapy horse and really is a gentle giant. She has quickly become a favourite and attracts a lot of attention. She can be a bit impatient for her feeds, and cheekily paws the ground! Promise is generously sponsored by Gordon Plenty.

Johnny

Johnny

Johnny is a lovely 12 year old, 15.2hh Standardbred gelding, who comes to us after a stint at Far North Qld RDA. Johnny is kindly sponsored by Peter Dutton MP, Federal member for Dickson.

Inde

Inde

Inde is a very handsome paint pony, about 14.1hh and 15 years old. He is new to our herd, and was kindly donated to RDA by the family of our much-missed volunteer, the late Peggy Stewart. We are confident he will settle in well to his new life at RDA. Inde is kindly sponsored by Airforce Pty Ltd.

Betty

Betty

Betty is a solid Gypsy cob cross mare, standing at about 14.2hh. She is dependable and kind, and will mature into a fine RDA mount. Betty is generously sponsored by Darren Grimwade, councillor for Division 11, Moreton Bay Regional Council

Misty

Misty

Misty is a very pretty 12 year old buckskin mare, about 14.1hh with a placid temperament. She has fast become the favourite with our riders and volunteers! We were able to purchase Misty with funding from the Samford & District Progress and Protection Association. Misty is proudly sponsored by Nikki Boyd MP.

Paddington Bear

Paddington Bear

Paddington Bear is a 7 year old grey gelding, strongly built with somewhat indeterminate breeding! He has a lovely, calm nature although he still needs to learn a few things, especially standing at the tie-up. Paddington was purchased with generous funding from the Samford & Districts Progress and Protection Association. Paddington is kindly sponsored by the Samford Community Bank.
