He is very sturdy but extremely comfortable to ride.

Tom Parker is also very accomplished at draught work and is happy to pull the cart, drag a tree or harrow the field.

After a slow start due to a very nasty bout of shipping fever, he joined our team properly in Autumn 2014 and has made a very impressive start.

He is extremely quick to learn and he is used as a very forward ride leading horse as well as an enjoyable ride for clients. Frankie Doodle was the winner of the Clydesdale race at Exeter in 2018.

Solo was the best in hand gelding at the Royal Highland Show before he came to Adventure Clydesdale, he is a very good looking horse.

Khiva

Khiva arrived from Milton Keynes at the beginning of Covid 19 lockdown, so had plenty of time to get to know the ropes and our ways of working on Darmoor.  He is an 8 year old and a very friendly horse always up for a cuddle.  He is a very smooth and forward going ride.

Bobby Dazzler

Bobby Dazzler came to us as a completely untrained 6 yr old at the end of February 2015.

He has an exceptionally gentle nature but is forward going and eager to please.

He has already graduated to doing day rides as he has a good level of fitness.  A true gentleman and always ready to oblige.

Salvo Montalbano

Salvo Montalbano  is fairly new to the team.  He is just 6 years old and is quite small for a Clydesdale.

Salvo is quick and nimble and is proving to be  a very nice horse indeed.  He is for the more experienced rider who will be impressed with his action.

Salvo is always keen to get on with the job.

Phil

Phil was foaled in 2011 and is a very solid member of the team, he has taken part in several of our holiday rides and is proving to be very popular.

He is a very handsome horse and is very friendly, always comes up to you if you are in the field, loves lots of attention.

JIMMY CLIFF is another fairly new member of our team, Jimmy Cliff is a lovely ride, he has the smoothest trot ever.

Before he came to us he was learning draught work and is very happy harrowing the field and is also learning to cope with the hitch cart.

A very good all-round horse, his tail is growing and will soon be as long as his friends’ tails.
