Louis 15hh piebald gelding Owned by Penniwells RDA

We very sadly lost Louis at the of 2013 – He had a fabulous life at Penniwells and touched so many lives. He will be greatly missed by everyone. Louis competed at our Regional Dressage this year and has enjoyed all his riders from beginner through to the more advanced – He has really benefitted the most from the Haygain Haysteamers as he suffers  from Asthma but since having these he has stopped coughing and is fitter than ever!


Flossie: The sad news is that we have had to say goodbye to Flossie in November 2012. She gave so much to Penniwells teaching many riders over the years. She lived to be 33yrs old and was still being ridden up to the end. We will never forget Flossie and all the lives she has touched along the way.  flossie
