Our Horses

Meet Our Horses

Bassett is a 15.1hh Piebald Cob Gelding aged 21 years. Bassett is a really safe sensible boy and happily carries some of our most disabled riders. We can always rely on him to be sure footed and steady.
Following the recent fundraising success of our Masquerade Ball we are delighted to have been able to purchase a new pony to join our team. “Diablo” is a 13hh Fell pony. He is 13 years old. We are very excited to have found Diablo as he already seems very well suited to the job. He is a great size for some of our smaller riders and ones that need support from two side walkers. Diablo has already shown us that he loves getting cuddles from our riders and volunteers and especially ones that have polos in their pockets!

Ben- is a 10 year old 13.3hh New Forest Gelding. Quest were very lucky to be awarded a Postcode lottery grant from RDA National, which enabled us to buy him and he arrived at Laris Farm in August 2014. Ben is a definite favourite with lots of the children and the absolutely loves people and getting kisses and cuddles.

Magical Millie is a 14.2hh, 14 year old piebald (black and white) pony who has fitted in at Quest RDA like a dream and is already becoming a firm favourite with the children who ride her. Magic joined our team in April 2016 thanks to the generous support of the Rokers Complex in Guildford.

Jack is a 14.3hh 8 year old black cob gelding. 'His full name is Jack in the Box' and he joined the Quest team in May 2017. Jack loves our Woodland Sensory ride and will be suitable for our children and adults.

Long Service awards
On 16th July 2015, HRH The Princess Royal presented Long Service Medals to our ponies Bassett, *Hunky and *Jake during her visit to Quest RDA. The visit was in celebration of Quest’s “Ruby” anniversary, but also of the group’s current achievements and of a golden future ahead.

*Sadly, since this article was published on our website, both Hunky and Jake have passed away, but we remember them with great fondness. They both reached a good age and enjoyed a period of retirement after their work with Quest.
