Rufus might be small, but his personality is big. He is a wonderful pony for all our young riders. He loves to trot and has been a huge help in teaching many of our young students how to canter. He and Petie are best buddies. We call Rufus the “grumpy one” because he always looks ornery.
However, when he is heading down to a jump or offered a carrot you will see a sparkle in his eye. Interesting Fact: Rufus show name was Double Take.
