Rupert retired from the Elisabeth Curtis Centre, Riding for the Disabled Association where he worked for a long and incredibly fruitful 20 years.
In his work, Rupert helped a number of disabled riders with different levels of ability each week, supporting them through some tough times with his cheeky character whilst providing countless people with skills, experience and fun they wouldn’t obtain any other way. He was also a firm favourite with many members of ECC and reportedly one of the most entertaining horses on the yard!
Rupert received a very special award in 2016 commemorating his many years of service at Elisabeth Curtis’ 40th Anniversary Tea Party. More recently, he took part in his last ride with dear friends before moving to The Horse Trust for a peaceful, and very well-deserved retirement.
Fellow new-comer Edinburgh has formed a very close bond with Rupert already. The pair can often be seen roaming the fields together! It’s wonderful to see how quickly he’s settled in amongst our herd and we’re honoured to be a part of Rupert’s newest adventure. We’ve no doubt he will continue to put smiles on the faces of those lucky enough to meet him at our Home of Rest in Buckinghamshire.
“Such a well deserved retirement after being with the ECC for so many years and helping so many people! He is the best pony and will be thoroughly missed”
