Tell us about your horse

Cheshmere Rihanna (Cici) is a welsh section C and 6 years old. She always tries her best to please. She is an amazing working hunter pony and will jump anything. Cici  won the supreme championship at Homestead Riding Club Show in May

Holyoak Jamila (Millie) is a welsh section B and 11 years old. She loves showing and hacking and has been successful in ridden and inhand showing.
