Who can ride Gordon?

Gordon is a fabulous pony who is perfect for children. A talented pony he can jump very well and canter up the hill with you, as you become a better rider. Gordon is a very obedient and quiet pony who is easy to ride.  He has a lovely, shy personality and is ideal for the older child as he is one of our bigger ponies. He is great to ride on Pony Mornings or at Shetland Pony Parties, which you can find out more about here.

Famous parents, famous pony

Gordon’s full name is Jordan of Quimper.  He comes from the Quimper stud which is famous for breeding white Shetland ponies.

He can go very fast and has been ridden in the Shetland Pony Grand National when he was younger. Once, Gordon raced in the Shetland Pony Grand National in front of the Queen.  Now he has slowed down and enjoys his work with children at Shetland Pony Club.
